Wear a Samurai Armor at SAMURAI NINJA MUSEUM TOKYO With Experience


Update: The real armor wearing experience is currently only available at Samurai Ninja Museum Kyoto. However, a basic ticket to Samurai Ninja Museum Tokyo already includes wearing a metal helmet and a realistic looking armor for free. The museum staff MAY also allow you to wear the full metal armor set based on the time of the day or day of the year. Please also note that if you are taller than 175cm or weigh more than 75kg, a typical samurai armor is not likely to suit you.

Experience the fulfillment of your childhood dream by becoming a genuine samurai. This is a rare chance to wear a samurai armor and pose with a katana in front of various backdrops or even walk outside on the streets of Tokyo (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. The profound and spiritual impact of wearing samurai armor becomes apparent only when you step into 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 friends may be impressed by your photos in samurai armor, but the unforgettable moment is when you look in the mirror and see a warrior traveled back in time.
