We live in a world where it is extremely easy to take fun, memorable pictures and edit them in any way our hearts desire. But sometimes it’s exciting to head to an actual photo studio and take pictures in extravagant costumes and professional makeup. And if you ever get the chance to do that in Japan, you may as well go all out and take epic photographs dressed in the armors of legendary Japanese samurai.

Newly open since August 1st is the Sengoku Photo Studios SAMURAI in Yoyogi, Tokyo. With prices starting at 8,800 yen (86.90 USD), they'll offer you the chance to wear and take professional pictures in armor identical to those of famous warriors such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.

The costumes have been worn by actors in historical dramas and movies, and are all modeled after real samurai armor in every little detail.

Choosing a pose won’t be an issue either, as all the poses were directed by Tetsuro Shimaguchi, a samurai sword artist who has previously worked with Quentin Tarantino in the movie Kill Bill.

And as if the shots were taken for a movie, the final products will be masterfully edited to look as if they’ve come straight out of a Hollywood film.
