So many things to do but where to start? That was the challenge we faced as we were coming up with potential agenda items for our upcoming trip to Tokyo. Yes, there were plenty of blogs and recommendations from sites but we wanted reassurance from people we know. Luckily, we discovered that a friend of ours travels to Tokyo for work on occasion so we were in luck. When we asked him what is one of the top things we should do – he mentioned that the Robot Café would definitely give us a unique and interesting experience.
Per his recommendation, we did the following:
- Booked tickets well in advance of our trip
- Skipped the addition of meals, as you can probably find better food options
- Made sure to have “enough” beverages prior to the event
As we got to the Robot Café, we had to check-in and grab our tickets in a building directly across the main entrance. Afterwards, we walked into a waiting lounge area where we could grab drinks and enjoy some random shows while waiting. 10-15 minutes before show time, we were told we can head to our seats. We walked down a number of steps, saw a “special” room, made it to our seats, got more drinks, and then the show started.
I’m not even sure where to go from here…all I can say to describe the experience is “What happened”? You’ll just have to check it out yourself to get that experience. Definitely a must if you want to check out the crazy, animated, out-there culture you can only find in Japan!!!
