The Robot Restaurant in Tokyo Was AMAZING!!!

Words Cannot Describe What We Saw

The robot restaurant in Tokyo was by far, the craziest, weirdest, and most awesome thing I have seen in my entire life!

This restaurant is located in the “Red Light District” of Kabuchiko (Tokyo) so right off the bat you feel like you enter an alternate universe.  The lights in Shinjuku, and in this area in particular, put the lights of Las Vegas to shame and the types of businesses in the area would give my grandma a heart attack.  When we first got there to pickup up our bento box tickets (I guess bento boxes are the food of choice for watching robots), we bumped into this fine young gentleman who was promoting the club beside the Robot Restaurant, Tank Girls.

So with our bento box tickets purchased, they lead us into what looked like Donald Trump’s living room, if his living room had taken acid.   Immediately the three of us (our American friend Bobby joined us) looked at each other and basically all said at the same time, “Where the f*&k” are we??”

We were lead down some stairs to the main stage area and the had the audience split into to areas with the stage in between them.  The lights dimmed, the music started…we were not ready for what we were about to see.

Bikini clad Japanese girls came bursting out of the stage doors dancing, swinging swords and playing drums in time with the weird fast-paced Japanese techno music. Next, more girls in bikinis come pouring out but this time they had weird masks on, spinning fire sticks and riding huge stuffed animals, something right out of a child’s nightmare.

Then the robots and dinosaurs showed up. I can’t even fully explain what happened over the next 45 minutes because it is one giant crazy blur.  There were robots,  giant stuffed animals, and dinosaurs coming from every direction. There were pandas riding cows, robots killing stuffed animals and girls riding motorcycles.  There were girls flying just above your head, a dancing robot with a clown wig on and so many other insane things that if I saw this show again tomorrow I wouldn’t recognize half of it.  It felt like my brain had just taken a fistful of ecstasy and for the rest of the night we kept asking ourselves, “What the f%^k did we just see?”

What I’m going to do (because I can’t explain what happened in words), I’m just going to post a bunch of pictures that sort of tell the story of what we saw (Hangover style).  As cliche as this sounds, pictures do not do it justice…you HAVE to see this in person to truly understand why this now ranks as the most awesome dinner we have ever had!
