The minute I stepped foot into the entrance of the brightly lit passage way, I knew I was no longer in Kansas. I was teleported to a world of LED dreams, loud dance music, and a smorgasbord of high energy. Before I planned my trip I stumbled across an article about a unique place in Tokyo called, Robot Restaurant. After much investigation there was no doubt that I had to see this crazy place for myself, I booked it through Viator and was super anxious because I had no idea what to expect. Heads up, some of these photos are pretty insane so look away if you aren't into crazy-cute Asian women and robots...can't say I didn't warn you.
The ticket that I purchased includes a bento dinner, along with a bottle of water and a free drink. Thought I would try something a little different...plus I like ginger ale.This cutie had a giant Asahi keg strapped on her back and poured drinks straight from it, I loved the concept but man...my back would be aching. Waiting in the stairwell for the doors to open for the show, being surrounded by LED walls was something I have never experienced before. It probably wouldn't be very comfortable if you were claustrophobic. My chicken bento set, the food is fairly basic so don't expect a gourmet meal. I'm 100% certain that people don't come here for the food anyway, I can agree that I wasn't bothered as my eyes were on the show. Daft Punk? Nope, just a couple of Japanese peeps in robot costumes. They were extremely talented, couldn't keep my eyes off of them. Although I look like I have been photoshopped into this photo, I can guarantee that I was actually there! I was smiling ear-to-ear, can you tell?Nothing makes you feel shorter than a gigantic robot standing over your shoulder. Let's just say, he didn't just have big feet. Hot girls on a tank! I am so happy I got to join this party.
This was my highlight from my Tokyo trip, and I would highly recommend going to see a show at the Robot Restaurant if you are ever in Shinjuku. I was in awe of all of the beautiful Japanese girls who are so ridiculously pretty, but packed with talent and major attitude. These girls know how to party and it felt like one big night of fun.
The costumes, props and last but not least, the robots were INCREDIBLE! When Daft Punk's 'Robot Rock' started playing, I wanted to get up and dance while waving my glow stick in the air just like in a rave. Minus the whistle. After the show was over I was buzzing on a high and had the urge to just hide out here, so I could hang with the robots. Domo arigatou, Mister Roboto.
Have you been to the Robot Restaurant? If not, would this be your kind of gig?
