Instant film camera with purikura capabilities?

I am in the market for an instant film (/Polaroid) camera that has an option to modify your photos, something like what purikura does, before you print them... does such a camera exist? I've heard a lot of good things about Instax, but can't find details online about whether it has modifying capabilities. Any ideas? Thank you very much

    You may want to check out this article that gives 3 mobile printing options. https://www.cnet.com/how-to/instant-printers-from-smartphone-polaroid-fujifilm-canon/ Nothing is currently available that offers both purikura editing and printing, so you will have to edit your photos via a separate app before printing.

    Yes, I think you are in the right direction. Fujifilm's Instax mobile photo printer is the most reliable in the market. It does have modifying capabilities but it is limited and according to the App Store reviews many people say they cannot open the app. http://instax.jp/share/features/ https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/sumaho-de-cheki/id716505912 According to this article, Instax SP-2 is the best. http://tectogizmo.com/top-5-portable-printers-for-smartphones/ Your alternative option is Polaroid ZIP, but the App Store review ratings are almost the same as Instax.

    Thank you @kevinc. I was going to buy it online, but I think I need a trip to a camera shop and have a good look around. Thanks again

    As far as I am aware, as an owner of the Instax, you can purchase special film that has desgins already printed on them, or special markers designed for writing on the Polaroid style photo. I, for purikura type photos, tend to use the Line Camera app on my cellphone. I've attached some before and after photos so you can have a better idea of what the app is capable of.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
