Learn about the history of the samurai warriors as you don traditional kacchu armor that was worn by these mighty Japanese soldiers. Choose from 7 unique armors and then take photos in your gear while posing with an authentic Japanese sword, creating a collection of memorable images.

Meet your guide in Shibayu, where you view a collection of treasured samurai armor. Learn about how these Japanese knights are revered in local society, and how their roles changed and expanded over time. Hear stories of the Edo period, when times of peace led to samurai gaining the highest levels of social status.

Pick your favorite armor out from the 7 options available. Your professional dresser then helps you get changed into the armor as you prepare for a fun photo shoot in your traditional attire. Head to the studio to pose with a Japanese sword for a lively photo session. The images taken here are fantastic keepsakes that you can show to your family and friends, teaching them all you’ve learned about the samurai.
