Robot Restaurant is a modern-day cabaret show that has become one of Japans top tourist attractions.
The live entertainment is a crazy combination of eastern and western pop culture, modern dance, light-shows, Japanese mecha, and live anime! The only way to truly describe Robot Restaurant is that, it is a type of modern-day Kabuki.
The 90-minute spectacle is divided into four acts that feature an array of friendly and heroic creatures who have to fend off an invasion by the Evil Robot Empire or something — to be quite honest we weren't really sure what was going on, but we loved every minute of it!
However, visitors shouldn't expect a typical dining experience, as it's more about the show than food. While meals are available for an extra charge, you can also buy refreshments and snacks between each act.
If you ever find yourself in Tokyo and have a few minutes to spare, with a few bucks to spend, Robot Restaurant should be on your to-do list when visiting Tokyo. It is something that is purely Japanese and something you can only see in Japan.
(Tip: Eat before you watch the show, so you can focus on the amazing performances and animatronics.)
