Robots in Shinjuku

The main reason for our visit to Shinjuku was the famous Robot Restaurant. My boyfriend already told me about this crazy restaurant, so I came up with the idea to buy tickets. The entrance was extremely expensive. It costs 8000 yen (70 swiss francs) per person. If you wanted to have additionally served a menu, you paid another 1000 yen. Despite the high ticket prices, the robot restaurant was well visited. I think the restaurant was one of the few places in Tokyo where I could see more Europeans than Asians. An important note to this „restaurant“, it’s clrearly more a crazy show than a restaurant. And by crazy I mean crazy. I think that’s how a tourist imagines Tokyo – colorful, shrill and cute. That’s exactly how the show was. Somehow, nothing fits together. They just put all kinds of characters in one show. Mangas, robots and animals, we saw everything. They talked, sang and danced, or something like that. At the end of the show, I didn’t quite know if it was worth the money. Well, I’ll say it like this: If you’re looking for something really offbeat, then visit the restaurant (cough) show.

Loving Shinjuku to the fullest

Honestly, I just have to love this place. When Brian and I visited Shinjuku, it was already dark outside. I think most of the big cities look even more beautiful at night. Shinjuku is a major commercial and administrative centre, housing the busiest railway station in the world (Shinjuku Station) and also the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. I had the great fortune to experience this busy place, more or less by coincidence. As I said, the main reason why we visited this district was the Robot Restaurant. But Shinjuku was so exciting, that we decided to walk a bit around and see what else it has to offer. This district was extremely full of different people. In addition to business people , there were many young people on the streets. We noticed a lot of arcades, gambling halls and shoe shops. Crowded streets, stylish people, luminous advertising made this place perfect for some cool street style photos.
