Walk with ChaMike in Japan | Robot Restaurant
Everyone knows that when it comes to technology Japan is the leader in electronic mayhem. In Robot Restaurant it proved that nothing can compare Japan's outrageous ideas and extraordinary facilities that uses robots as a medium to entertainment. Robot Restaurant, more of a 'show' rather than a restaurant that is open daily with four shows that stages per day. Conviced by its high rated reviews on tripadvisor, I encouraged Mike to go there.

We took a train via Yamanote line, stopped at Shinjuku Station and walked our way to Kabukicho district.
We were greeted by an extravagant display of colorful lights and two giant fembots. By the time we arrived tourists were starting to line up although we were shocked at how expensive the entrance fee was- Y6,000 (P2,570) per person and per show, we immediately joined the bandwagon queue.
At the line, we were asked if we had a reservation (unfortunately we had none) because they prioritize guests and offer bento boxed food for those who only reserved for that day. It was such a great regret that we didn't make a reservation so it is really important to reserve prior.

Luckily we arrived early so we were accommodated at the 6:40pm show.
After paying we were asked to put our belongings at a locker room nearby, they insisted on putting all our stuff there because the room was really crowded and tiny. The use of their lockers is free of charge.
We were then asked to stay at the lounge while they're still preparing for the show.

After announcing that the show was about to start we were then transferred to the basement and sat at the corresponding seat number written on the ticket.
Snacks and beverages are also for sale before the show started.

Here are some of the photos I took during the show. Take note that picture taking is allowed without using the flash however filming of the performance is not allowed (though I found some guests who filmed it so I guessed it wouldn't hurt if I did too)

In the middle of the show, the audience was allowed to take a quick photo op with their remote controlled robots and we saw from up close that these were not mascots but were real robots being controlled by humans (wasn't able to take a shot of those controls though)

For sure Mike and the guys inside the room they were excited about the girls. So for the boys, in Robot Restaurant you will never get bored.
