Pika Pika – Photo booth fun

The ultimate wacky and unusual first date spot: Pika Pika in Japantown offers over an hour of truly unique entertainment. These photo booths based out of Japan are so ridiculous you’ll find yourself in fits of laughter.

When you go, you pick a machine based on its theme. You pay up front (prices range from $ 9 – $ 20 depending on the size of the prints you want), and then you spend about 5 minutes inside the machine actually taking the photos. Some of the machines don’t even have any English text, though, so you may not know what’s happening!

After taking the photos, you get to go in the little booth next to it and decorate your images. This is the real fun part. You get about 20-30 minutes to decorate using their electronic pen, and the options are endless! After this, you print it out and enjoy.

This is one of my favorite silly things to do in the city, plus you can spend the rest of the day wandering Japantown, eating amazing food, and getting lost in shops. And, it’s the best first date spot I can think of.
