The infamous Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku district of Tokyo Japan is quite the visual and auditory explosion. Absolutely nothing is subtle, and it is not meant to be. Most people don’t even order a meal there, since the “restaurant” part is secondary to the show. There aren’t even regular dining tables, as all the spectators are lined up on two sides looking at the main performance alley in between.
The Robot Restaurant performance is formed by a series of small serial performances, all of which theoretically build upon a slightly incoherent story line that doesn’t really matter anyhow. It is all about color, sound, music, movement, dance, and cool remote control or programmed robots.The performance is relatively short and a bit pricey for the length. But it is also a tourist “must see” to check the box of having been to the Robot Restaurant. They pack everyone in at every performance!
