Robot Restaurant: Inside Tokyo's Craziest Show

In a country of hilariously weird TV shows, insane manga titles, curious food items, and peculiar fetishes, there is ONE attraction that every tourist MUST check-out in Tokyo. 

The Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku is Tokyo's CRAZIEST show; an adrenaline-pumping and sensory overloading performance that perfectly showcases everything that makes Japan the dichotomy that it is.

Robot Restaurant

* And while it may look like a regular neon-lit KTV from the outside..


Robot Restaurant

* It is batsh*t cray inside! Like Star Trek meets Star Wars meets the Grandmaster's Palace in Thor Ragnarok!

Robot Restaurant

* The performance hall is a lot more narrow than I expected it to be and the show is best enjoyed with an alcoholic beverage!

Robot Restaurant

* And when it gets going.. it hits you HARD. Yes those are lady dancers wearing horse head masks.

Robot Restaurant

* Featuring a parade of the most random mascots, showgirls, and animatronics. 

Robot Restaurant

* Mech fights between two teams of frightening and LOUD robotic animals, mythical and fictional characters! 

Robot Restaurant

* Characters with giant heads, oddly-shaped heads, or no heads at all.

Robot Restaurant

* Cabaret burlesque dancers performing on LED-filled floats shaped like giant mermen.

Robot Restaurant

* All the while being serenaded with the catchiest, most annoying, bubble-gum pop known to man. With matching dance moves!

Robot Restaurant

* ROAR said the Dragon-TRex-Porcupine hybrid.

Robot Restaurant

* I think Leonidas and the 300 could have defeated the Persians.. had they had horses made up of diamonds and other precious stones!

Robot Restaurant

* Due to the unsurprisingly high demand, tickets are often sold-out for weeks, even months!

Robot Restaurant

* Make sure to buy them online wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy in advance! 

Robot Restaurant

* The robot maid from the Jetsons?!

Robot Restaurant

* LED Cyborg Ninjas.. I have seen everything!

Shinjuku

* The adventure continues outside as the area is in Tokyo's red light district known as Kabukicho.

Shinjuku

* With seedy streets full of call girls, hostess clubs, love hotels, and sketchy DVD shops, Kabukicho is often referred to as the Sleepless Town.

Shinjuku

* Don't let that deter you from exploring the area, however, as it is generally safe to walk around the district at night. 

Shinjuku

* Just don't forget to bring a bag full of common sense!
