What you'll do
The Samurai Armor Photo Studio experience is: putting on the armor, taking photos in the studio in about 10 poses with various expressions. There will be about 150 photos in total, and we will give you all the photo data on an SD card. This is the same quality of armor that actors wear for Japanese period dramas on TV and in movies. We obtain the armor from a craftsman who also sells to movie studios. This dressing method is the same as 400 years ago.
I'm a professional armor dresser ("kacchu no kitsuke shi"), a tradition passed down in Japan. You can't put Japanese armor on by yourself, you need a dresser. I often put armor on actors to shoot movies or TV shows. 4 years ago, I started offering my services to foreign tourists wanting to experience this aspect of Japanese culture. I've dressed about 1500 people in armor during that time! Japanese armor fits any body type. Each piece has a meaning and goes on in a specific order, I'll explain all of that as I put the armor on you. 私は日本の伝統的な”甲冑”の着付け師です。 日本の甲冑は一人で着るものではないので、私のような着付け師が着付けをいたします。現代では、映画撮影などで役者さんに着付けをします。 私は4年前から、訪日観光客様にも甲冑の着付けをしています。 この4年間で約1500人の外国の方に甲冑を着付けしました。 日本の甲冑はどんな体型の方でも着る事ができます。 甲冑には着付けの順番やパーツにも意味がありますので、着付けをしながら説明をさせていただきます。 どうぞ宜しくお願いします。
