Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.

A show that will leave you asking “What just happened?” At Japan Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku, more really is more. This means you’ll get to experience robots dancing alongside half naked women to the sounds of Psy’s Gangnam Style, soon after watching panda’s ride robotic cows, a mermaid come strolling around on a robotic shark, and a gigantic spider woman fighting piano playing power rangers. Before the show begins, make sure to check out the robotic lounge on the top floor and cuddle away with your very own baby dinosaur at this crazy golden bar that would make even Austin Powers faint.

The show runs four times a day, and costs around ¥ 6000 per person including a bento box. During high season it is advisable to book your tickets ahead of time. Check out their English website for more info: http://www.robot-restaurant.com/E/
