The embodiment of eccentric Japanese entertainment resides in the heart of Shinjuku.
As one of Tokyo’s main tourist attractions, the Robot Restaurant is internationally known for its unique fusion of Japanese culture and futuristic technology.
The elaborate atmosphere, reportedly costing over $100 million to construct, explodes with life and lasers, entertaining audiences with an elaborate production that resembles the upscale nature of a Broadway show and the surprises of a circus performance simultaneously.
The flashy robots and zany cast members deliver a surreal performance with live music, enormous dragons, dinosaurs, and an aquatic-themed dance ensemble, which is chaotic yet impressive.
The Robot Restaurant experience is unlike any other around the world, as its unmatched energy and outlandishness are exclusive to Japan.
