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:
Patchinko machines sure got fancy since last times I saw them
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.
