Purikura is short for Print Club or プリント倶楽部 in Japanese.
It’s a icon of youth culture in Japan
The first machines started in 1995 and there’s been a boom in them ever since.
From teenage girls dressing up with their friends to couples taking romantic shots.
It usually costs 400 yen for 4-6 purikura photos.
They print them in cuttable strips for sharing and often the pictures double as stickers.
There are a variety of machines you can use…
from cute ones that make your eyes massive and add makeup to silly ones full of joke stamps to decorate your pictures.
