Photo booth in Asia

If most people in Asia have cellphones to take pictures and selfies, they still enjoy going to photo booth. These places are called Purikura in Japanese and they look like your usual photo booth but with upgrades, such as props, different backgrounds and filters or stickers to edit the pictures. 

The Purikura phenomenon started in Japan in the mid-90s and is still very popular today in Japan and Korea alike. Purikura also gave birth to photo studios where people can come with friends, rent a room equipped with props and a set up, and take several shots. Once they are happy with the result, they select their favorite picture and each person gets one or two copies of it. Friends and couples love to do this kind of activities during their time off.
