The manager Shimpei was an absolute blast and is always offering up tidbits of samurai history to you throughout the session. When we were late he waited outside in the freezing cold to try and catch us. When we got in, even though my girlfriend was not interested in wearing the armour (you can choose from 5), Shimpei still included her in some of the 150 photos he took (I got actually 166). Last thing for people to know is that even though I’m really fat I still managed to put on the armour, so if you’re doubtful you can fit into it, chances are you can. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

We had a great time, the 2 gentlemen who got us dressed and took our pictures were very upbeat and funny and it was an overall great experience.
