Samurai commemorative photograph

Takeda Shingen Festival - Ricoh samurai (employees) line up for the customary commemorative photo

Japanese take more canned, commemorative photos (記念写真) than anyone. Perhaps they take more than all other cultures combined. Who knows?

Everyone tends to look very solemn in these kinen shashin, and the pictures tend to include so many people that you can’t really see who is in the photo anyway. Rather boring, right?

I suppose one way to liven things up is to have the participants dress as samurai.
