Everything about this is brilliant, from the pre-show drink to the psychedelic walk downstairs to the actual show. I can't explain too much without spoilers. Go and see for yourself. Oh and we ordered a one cup sake during the show, which was good value for money and very tasty. You can take photos, just don't use the flash. All... More

For a start it isn't worth the price of admission but I doubt there is another show like it anywhere in the world. So I guess you're paying for the totally one of a kind experience. The venue is as theatrical as the performance. The performance itself is crazy and unstructured and you would be good to guess what is... More

It's difficult to review as this was so bad it was kind of good... This was the most expensive thing I did during my stay in Tokyo even though I had a voucher for 2000 yen off. It was still 6000! I advise anyone to get a Time Out magazine and get the voucher. It's not worth paying the extra.... More

When I was planning my trip to Japan, I stumbled on a lot of reviews of Robot Restaurant. I wasn't too sure about it though and I thought I could just skip it because it was a bit too touristy. It wasn't until Laura uploaded a throwback video on Instagram with Robot Restaurant musicians that I decided to give it... More

If you like lots of bright lights and chaos then the Robot Shows for you. It is a fast paced very loud and has a variety of robots, large and small, performing along with humans, dance and theatrical performances. The robots are different types of machinery done up to look like animals and vehicles or used to carry dances and... More

If you like fun, crazy showmanship and the weird side of Japan, then this should be on your bucket list. Book tickets in advanced, it can be a bit pricey but was just so entertaining & something completely different. It’s called a restaurant but it’s more like stepping into the Alice in Wonderland of Japan, with colourful, energetic & surreal... More

Pro tip: find a tourism centre close by, they will have vouchers/magazine coupons to bring the price down to about 6000 yen,otherwise be prepared to fork out about 8500. If you just want to turn up because you didn't book, get a voucher, turn up and hope for vacant seats, they'll accept you if there's free seats. Give them 1hr... More

Complete craziness and fun. It's a little pricy but it's like nothing you'll ever see anywhere else. Don't bother with the food though. Just book and sit back and enjoy an amazing show :-)

Highly recommended for that weird Japanese experience. Pre-book tix at least a day or two in advance, especially on a Fri/Sat night. There are deals out there, so shop around. Food prices are ridiculous, drink prices are alright. Have pre-drinks before the show in the lounge, then enjoy the entertainment. Be sure to check out the bathrooms, very interesting decor....

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
