One of the most striking points of Kabukicho in Shinjuku is a bar called Robot Restaurant. A place full of lights, neon lights and flashing signs, where they offer shows full of luminous robots, girls dressed in character with lots of dance and vibrant music. An interesting place, but expensive!
Upon entering the Robot Restaurant, you are taken to a “waiting room” where there is actually a restaurant with a menu of food / snacks and drinks. When starting the show, you are directed to a room where the shows will take place. You can choose to buy a meal to eat at the show.
The show surprises and pleases the visitors, mainly due to the nostalgia of the 90s. The place is very colorful, psychedelic and despite being located in an adult neighborhood, the robot restaurant is free for children and teenagers. They even offer ear plugs because of the sound.
The big problem is that people get too excited before they go. I heard a lot of disappointments from people who expected something different. Before visiting the place, you must know it and know if it is really worth visiting. Instead of just mentioning that it is a colorful and lively place, in this article we will really get to know Robot Restaurant.
What to expect from Robot Restaurant?
Some simply expect the restaurant to be technological with real robots serving customers. Such robots are, in reality, large machines controlled by a remote control or pushed by people. At no time did the restaurant promise high technology and real robots.
If you're familiar with carnival, the show is basically that. Something colorful full of girls in costume with lots of music and lights. It may seem like a common thing for many Brazilians, but for the Japanese it becomes a very popular and unique destination.
If you are going to enter this restaurant, be prepared to spend 10,000 yen or more. Buy tickets online, because the price doubles at the door. There are long breaks during the show for sales of gifts and drinks.
The restaurant, in fact, is a concert hall, which serves ready meals on trays. The show is very different and interesting, but it is not for everyone. Visiting the Robot Restaurant can provide a fun, funny and bizarre night. If you are interested in the show, I think it is worth visiting once.
