Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku, Japan
A new eatery in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district mixes sushi and robots for a unique experience. Ten billion yen ($127 million) to build, Robot Restaurant features LED encrusted tanks, cabaret girls and gigantic fembots steered with joystsicks. For a steep 3.000 yen ($37) admission, you can be served by a Valkyrie ‘robot’ straight out of the game Soul Calibur and enjoy an hour-long caberet of, well, you name it – Japanese taiko drumming, kimono wearing faux-geishas singing japanese folk songs, a vinyl-clad marching band, and young girls dancing in army motif swimsuits. Think Chuck E Cheese with sexbots and sushi – you get the idea.
