Japanese Photographer Captures Stunning Images Of “Time-Traveling Samurai”

A series of stunning images recently posted by architect and photographer Atsushi Kobayashi have been trending lately, and understandably so. Representing a collaboration with traditional Japanese armor enthusiast Naga x Masa, these photos shot in Kakogawa City, Hyogo Prefecture, seem to depict a formidable warrior from the Sengoku Era (1467-1600) suddenly transported into present-day Japan.

Posing majestically on a mountain top, his sword stretched out against the backdrop of the setting sun, you can almost hear him exclaim: “I have come to conquer!”
