So Tatsumi recently changed from an app to just a website and you have to sign up to get even the free purikura. Here’s how to get a free account and your free purikura!
Just a little note to apologise for the sporadic posting, work takes more time and energy each year but I swear I’m still here and I’m going to try and make more time for friends, purikura and this blog!)
Once you enter your iPhone address at the machine it will send you an email with a link…
You will be taken to the log in page, if you want to set up a new account click the pink box.
It wants you to send an email to it so click the pink box again and it will automatically create an email.
Make sure that the email is coming from your iPhone email address, and send it just as it is.
In a few seconds you will recieve your registration email. Click the link.
Now you have to register. Your email address is already there, but you need to fill in:
- a password (8-32 characters)
- your gender
- date of birth
- which prefecture you live in
Then click the button at the bottom.
This screen confirms that your account was created. Click where it says ‘top’ to go to the main page.
This is the main page, click the yellow button that says ‘ プリ画像ＧＥＴはこちら!’
You’ll be taken to a page with some PR blurb, scroll down…
…to the pink button.
This will show you the pictures you can download. Click on one.
Tap and hold to save the image. A nice touch is that if you tap the tab on the right under the picture you can also get the picture without any decoration. Use the back button to get the other picture.
And you are done! I haven’t got a paid account with this company but if I do I will let you know how to do that too!
Oh, one last point, if you are logged in then your pictures should be there when you click the link in any new emails, but if you are going to the site without using the email link then when you tap the get purikura link you’ll have to enter the code from your purikura on a page like this…
Hope this helps!
NB I assume that as usual this only works on Japanese addresses, web based email and foreign iPhone email address as yet don't work.
