What is Robot restaurant?
The name of this restaurant might be misleading as it’s not quite a restaurant and it’s not entirely robot themed, although it does feature robots. There are several drinks you can choose from and a 1000 yen traditional Japanese bento (lunch box). However, a trip to Robot Restaurant is more about the unique entertainment, than about the food, as during your visit, you’ll see a performance including live music, dancers, a robot fight and more, all in a backdrop of colours and lights galore. A visit to Robot restaurant will surely be one of the highlights of your Tokyo experience.
Why to go there?
The performance is dynamic, crazy and rather spectacular. Even the waiting room (Rainbow Lounge) where everyone gathers before the show, has 12,000 bulbs on the walls and claims to “put even Las Vegas to shame”.
Although arcades might be disappearing in the west, they are still pretty hot in Japan. It is very common to see a Game Station on almost every big district and of course, Akihabara is no exception. Being the place where gamers meet to buy the latest videogames, the “Electric Town: is full with UFO catchers and arcade salons. You’ll even see one as soon as you exit the train station. Most often, you’ll find are those arcades administered by SEGA and Taito, but there are many others, so don’t be afraid to look in, even if they don’t have a famous name to support them, you are sure to have a good time. Even if you are not a gamer, Japanese arcade rooms are places where different kinds of people go just to kill some time and have fun, so there are games oriented for the non experts, designed with the purpose of having a good time with your friends.
