WHAT IS PURIKURA??

Purikura: also known as photo stick­ers, is a phe­nom­e­non that started in the mid 1990’s in Japan. Purikura short­ened from “Pur­into Kurabu ” means “print club”. Since their launch in the 1990’s the indus­try and pop­u­lar­ity of purikura has spread tremen­dously. They became a phe­nom­e­non in Japan, espe­cially among its teenage female cul­ture. Still to this day, the purikura indus­try is thriv­ing and new and excit­ing machines are made every few months. Its photo booth could fit any­where from 6–10 peo­ple! Each booth also comes with edit­ing screens so you can dec­o­rate and cus­tomize your photo after it is taken. Purikura spread tremen­dously all across Asia, espe­cially into Tai­wan, Thai­land, and Korea.  It can now be found in Aus­tralia, Amer­ica, mul­ti­ple coun­tries in Europe, Indone­sia, Philip­pines, S. Amer­ica, Canada, and even in Hon­olulu, Hawaii for the very first time!!
