Purikura | Sticker Picture Photo Booths

Purikura are sticker pictures taken in photo booths that can be decorated and written on with digital effects. You can add writing, frames, designs, change hair colors, eye colors, and enhance your skin. The machines' effects gets rid of blemishes and enlarges your eyes. The stickers are then printed on a sticker which you can cut apart and divide amongst friends. Many machines today even allow you to pick which photos you want printed and in what design you want your photo strip. Purikura pictures are sometimes criticized for enhancing the person too much and over-beautifying them.

Purikura is very popular among Japanese young children and adults, especially women. You can often see Japanese school girls taking purikura after school. Some purikura places even offer costumes like school girl uniforms and maid outfits its customers can wear to take pictures. Purikura machines can be found at arcades and some malls, and more commonly in cities populated with younger generations. Harajuku and Shibuya have purikura stores where the store is filled with purikura machines and you have a great share to choose from the different machines that provide different effects.
