Reservations can be made online and with an additional fee, you can enjoy a meal with the show. The Japanese meals include sushi and bento, and while you’re enjoying your food, you can enjoy some cutting-edge entertainment.
Fascinated by robots
It’s not just about the robots tripping the light fantastic with the dancers. The biggest charm of the Robot Restaurant is its flashiness and originality. The dancers in their highly revealing outfits show off some magnificent moves to the beat of the taiko drums and other percussion, but that’s not everything. There’s a fair amount of decorative illumination on the tanks and other robots which the dancers skillfully handle. The robots are very expressive through their winking and hand waving. Also, themed performances are one of the other attractions with highlights including robot battles, robot parades and even Japanese-themed acts of josendaiko (women war drums) and senbonzakura (a thousand cherry trees). It is only at the Robot Restaurant where you can see this one and only performance which brings together robots and dancing that cannot be seen anywhere in Japan or in the world.
