Purikura Japanese Photo Booth at Round1 Arcade

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Korean Experiences

I wouldn’t exactly classify this as a “Korean Experience” but I did not have an appropriate series to classify it under.

Over the past weekend I visited Round1 arcade with my family. For those of you whom are unfamiliar with Round1 it is an arcade chain that originated in Japan. Famous for its UFO Catcher machines and various instant win games. The arcade also houses a variety of “Purikura” Japanese Photo Booth machines.

These machines are infamous for the Kawaii decorations and backgrounds you can add to your photos. A big drawing factor of these machines is the ability to alter your appearance with these machines. You can make your eyes appear larger or smaller, add makeup, change your hair color and so much more.

This was my second experience with using these machines and I have to admit I still feel claustrophobic when inside the machine.

Below is a YouTube video documenting my experience. Basically a “How to Purikura” video. I will be posting more videos of my favorite things to do at Round1. Let me know in the comments below if there is anything specific you would like to see in the arcade. ^.^

Have a great day!
