The Toei Uzumasa Eigamura in Kyoto is a living museum, filled with live action skits played in the street, making visitors feel like in a samurai movie. One of their many attractions is the reenactment of small historical scenes including famous characters.
Photographed here is Okita Sōji, a samurai recognized as one of the most talented swordsmen in the history of Japan, captain of the Shinsengumi police force. He’s strolling through the streets with a severe attitude, like when the Shinsengumi were patrolling the streets of Kyoto.
