Wear a Samurai Armor at Samurai and Ninja Museum Kyoto
Your childhood dream can finally come true by transforming into a real samurai. This is a rare chance to put on a samurai armor and pose with a katana in front of various backdrops or even walk outside on the streets of Kyoto (Only in the summer). The samurai armor was designed to give more mobility to the bearer compared to European armors but it has this magical power that transforms the bearer into an ultimate warrior. You can only realize the uplifting and spiritual impact of wearing the samurai armor when you put on one at the samurai studio. There are so many swords, spears and samurai-themed backdrops to choose from as if you are walking in an old samurai castle. Your photos in a samurai armor may impress your friends but what you’ll remember is the moment you look in the mirror and see a warrior traveled back in time.
