2013/05/30 Visiting Japan Day 10: Evening in Shinjuku, Robot Restaurant, Neko Cafe
π 2013-05-30 01:01 in Japan, Japan2013, Trips
The second night of my conference, we had no planned event, so I used that evening to go see the Robot Restaurant with Jennifer. After getting to Ikebukuro which was the harder part (the hotel is in the middle of nowhere), getting to Shinjuku was a quick train ride down.

We started by looking around Shinjuku at night before going to the robot restaurant:

Tobu and Seibu are absolutely huge department stores, you could spend hours in there

And eventually we went there for our scheduled show. What can I say, it's crazy stuff, it's ridiculous, it does have scantily clothed women dancing, the food is pretty bad (better not to eat it), and the experience is well worth it, and something you won't get anywhere else. Jennifer wasn't exactly going to get a whole lot out of the women dancing, and she loved the crazy show nonetheless.


the colors, my eyes!

  • On our way there, I had noticed a Neko (cat) cafĂ©, and we went to visit it

    they had nice fancy breeds, even if most didn't seem super friendly

    Those were a fun few hours in Shinjuku for views and "only in Japan" stuff :)
