Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant show is wild, weird, amazing

Looking for something unusual … and crazy … during your visit to Tokyo.  How about checking out the wildly popular robot show at the Robot Restaurant ?  This show has been featured in media and TV around the world and has become a must-see attraction for tourists in Tokyo.  Robots and girls dancing, fighting, parading, and putting on a wild display that will leave you with only one thing to say … Wow !!!

Located in Kabukicho, an entertainment, red-light, and dinning section of the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, the restaurant show fits in with the craziness of the area. It is a wonder of technology, with big and small robots of all types … shaped like action heroes, dinosaurs, sharks, Transformers, spiders and even women … parading across the stage among multi colored lights and lasers …. surrounded and ridden by wildly dressed girls.

Watch the above video by Sharla in Japan, as she gives a great introduction to the variety of visuals you can expect from this sensory overload experience. Also check out the virtual reality 360° video experience in the Video Options.
