You Don’t Go To A Robot Restaurant For The Food! (Video)

Robot fans have a new mecca and excuse to make the trek to Japan. There's a new 'Robot Restaurant' in the Kabukicho district of Tokyo that will knock your socks off. Featuring giant female mechas, a light show that runs the risk of burning your eyes out, golden toilets, and what appears to be a pretty run of the mill Japanese bento lunchbox. But no one comes here for the food.

Admission, which includes the opportunity to get your photo taken riding/controlling one of the mechas, a one hour show, and the lunchbox, runs just under USD$40. Checkout the full tour in the video below.

It may seem a bit odd, but as the saying goes, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." Since I'm in Japan, I'm going to spend Christmas Day in Tokyo watching Dekinnoka 10 - Robot Pro Wrestling!

The event will take place at the Buddhist Hall in Tsukiji. Doors open at 16:30 and the action kicks off right on schedule at 17:30.
