When my sister and I decided we’d have a girls’ night, we originally thought of pretty “girly” things to do: mani/pedis or cooking class and drinks. But once my husband and brother-in-law told us about their experience at Robot Restaurant, we had to change course.
Opened in 2012, Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku is a crazy neon and sparkle-filled spectacle that is so Japan. It’s a show that revolves around two rival tribes, one of human natives and animals and one of robots who try to take over the peaceful forest. At least that’s what we were told because we were lost almost instantly. There’s a fighting panda, a soft rock band and towering Transformers-style robots and that’s not even the half of it. Oh, and $5 drinks. Awesome.
We laughed, we screamed and loved every minute of this crazy show. If you come to Japan, you have to go. Have. To. Go.
