Time Out Says

Renewed interest in film photography, particularly among millennials, is prompting new rental darkrooms to spring up across Tokyo. This monochrome-dedicated location in Yutenji is our favourite for the fact that it is attached to a stylish gallery and café-bar. Rental of the well-equipped darkroom costs ¥400 per half-hour plus a ¥500 fee for using the supplied chemicals; paper should be purchased elsewhere. Paper Pool’s similarly well-stocked café-bar offers beer, wine and simple cocktails, together with small dishes costing around ¥1,000 each.
