SAMURAI Experience for Couple

SAMURAI Experience for Couple

For couples coming to Sengoku Photo Studio SAMURAI for the Armor Experience, we have a special option. This option is free of charge.

After we take pictures of the armor experience, we will put her in a kimono called UCHIKAKE STYLE. I thank you both for coming to Studio Samurai with us. Let me take her UCHIKAKE STYLE pictures as well.

One of the photos we will take will be a two-shot of you and her, and we will also take one photo of her alone.
We will then combine the photos with a background and provide you with prints and data. The studio staff will decide the background for the composite. Please understand that the background will be decided by the studio staff.



If you would like to have this photo taken, you do not need to make a reservation in advance, but it would be great if you could write “I would like to try the UCHIKAKE STYLE” in the remarks column when you make a reservation for the armor experience.




The UCHIKAKE is originally worn over a kimono, but since you will be wearing it over her clothes, there is no time for her to change.



I hope she will enjoy Studio SAMURAI a lot as she comes to this place with you to experience Armor.


**Notes on the UCHIKAKE experience
– UCHIKAKE is not available in children’s sizes
– Taking a picture wearing UCHIKAKE is a free service, but only one UCHIKAKE experience is allowed per armorer experience.
– If you wish to have more than one UCHIKAKE experience, an additional fee will be charged. Please consult with us.


What is UCHIKAKE ?

Uchikake (打ち掛け) are highly formal women’s over-kimono. The name uchikake comes from the Japanese verb uchikake-ru, “to drape upon”, originating in roughly the 16th century from a fashion among the ruling classes of the time to wear kimono unbelted over the shoulders of one’s other garments. The uchikake progressed into being an over-kimono worn by samurai women before being adopted some time in the 20th century as bridal wear.
