The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Best samurai experience in town. A lot of weapon to choose for your photo session from swords, spears, to guns and bow. The staffs are so friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Most lively photo session ive ever had.

Editting doesnt take long at all, you get the result as soon as you finish changing. The end result is astonishing!

Definitely recommend this experience especially if youre also interested in samurai culture and history.

Exceptional service and spectacular experience!

Visited with our two small children (5 and 3 year old who also participated). Like others, we had a wonderful experience that is different from the standard kimono one, and it didnt omit children. Photography level was professional and the staff members were highly knowledgeable about the armor and explained the history as well. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and very highly recommend this studio! Thank you again!

One Amazing and Unique Experience!
Nov 2019
After a lot of researching, we ended up going with SAMURAI Sengoku Photo Studio Samurai, and it was by far the best experience we have had. The staff are very enthusiastic about Samurai and very well knowledgable about the history about the Samurai and their armours that they have available for the photoshoot - making the experience all the more authentic. It is a very intimate and personal experience as well, as sessions were taken individually. What also sets it aside from other studios is some shots being shot infront of a green screen with some amazing photoshoping skills. truly and experience to remember. We recommend it to everyone of all ages.

From your friends in Sydney, Australia.

Much thanks and appreciation!!

Highlight of our Honeymoon
Nov 2019 • Couples
We made reservations to have our photos done here and it was completely wonderful. A great selection of armor and very professional photos. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. We had a fantastic time laughing and learning and getting photos that we will cherish forever. Taro San was the BEST! TripAdvisor reviews are right about this place.

I travelled to Japan with my father to watch rwc 2019 and decided to book a photo shoot with SAMURAI Sengoku Photo Studio as a memory of our trip together. Taro san was a great host and photographer with wonderful staff and shared some amazing Japanese history about the armour and samurai practises. Truely an unforgettable experience! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to dive into Japanese history and culture and have fun while doing it! Thank you again!

I work for a Japanese company and only had one day free to schedule this amazing experience. Ms. Junko opened early to accommodate both of our schedules. I had so much fun and learned so many interesting things. It was the highlight of this trip (and I do many fun things in Japan!). I had many great photos, but might have to come again as I think I could do even better!

The staff were so friendly and helpful, it was such a fun experience. I got the option where they turn your shot into a manga frame and I am so happy with it! One of the coolest souvenirs I have from my trip!

Unforgettable!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Went here with my wife. We took the Take option with an additional kimono shoot with my wife. What makes this so valueable is the entire experience. Sure the pictures are wonderful, but the entire process of putting on the armor, the wonderful conversations with the owner and his assistant, and the effort they take to make you look good, makes this entire thing unforgettable. You leave this place with great pictures, and with even greater memories. Do book in advance though, I don't think you could just walk in.

Absolutely worth it
May 2019 • Solo
Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. You get to pick which armor you want to wear for the duration of your time there. They suit you up and explain to you why samurai wear and do what they do. So while you’re having fun you’re also getting a history lesson on the subject. They take a bunch of pictures in certain poses and compile a movie for you. Depending on which package you choose you can get coffee cups, posters, coasters, and other stuff with your pictures on it. It’s a little pricey but it’s definitely worth it as it’s an experience I’ll always remember. If you’re in Tokyo go check this place out.

Must try.... love it
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is one of my best experiences during my stays in japan, where you will choose one of the samurai outfits that you like. Then photo or video session will take place later on. The expected duration is 1-2 hours and its really worth the tries.

The outcome pictures/ video is so professional.

In short believe me don't miss it

Thx
