This is the height of over-the-top scholck, Japanese-style. Don't go and get angry when there's barely any plot. That's not the point! Instead, enjoy the absurd spectacle of light shows, huge floats, and robot fights. The performances are actually excellent though not the spoken acting! - my favorite was their opening number, a taiko drum performance involving a couple-dozen performers.
A touristy experience that lives up to all the hype. Insane in the best way!
One of the most fun events we did in Tokyo. Grab a drink or two at some of the bars around there ahead of time.
It has flashing lights, lasers, smoke, nonsensical plot, nonsensical music, over the top action. What is not to love? This is the best night I had in Japan! It was everything I wanted!
The guys dressed as robots playing lounge jazz in the waiting room beforehand were awesome. The decor is so over the top you will never believe it. Even in the bathrooms!
Some people have complained about a few things. The show really is about 45 minutes long. To be fair, the size of the machinery and the costume changes would take time to set up, so it's not like there isn't a reason. The drinks, contrary to what people have said are not overpriced at all. For any show you would expect to pay a little more and they are not charging like a wounded bull. They also did not push the intermission food and drinks hard unlike what some people seem to think. Some billboard waving and a trolley goes around the front row, hardly pushing guys. There are not really 'robots' per se, machinery and people in costumes and some remote controlled stuff, but what were people expecting, Optimus Prime to drive all over the arena :0
Seriously though, do yourselves a favour, and go see the show. I reckon it is more fun after a couple of drinks. Take it for what it is and don't expect transformers on stage but have a great time! Also the outside of the building is a total seizure inducing mass of lights, so if you look at that and think it's cool, you'll love the show.
Definitely will go again should I find myself in Tokyo
The Robot Show was great!!! Suggestion - get there a little early. The check-in process is a little confusing. First, you need to get your tickets at one door then go to another building across this building to the show. The doors open to a waiting area. The entertainment starts here so don't miss it!!
We had so much fun here on our last night! So full on and funny. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
Excellent tour, my wife and I loved it. Music was incredible as well as colorful robots and special effects. Ambience is amazing and people treat you very well. I would go again if I come back. Regards from Mexico.
Greatest show I've ever seen! Cannot recommend this more highly if you're into watching the weirdest and craziest event of your life.
Totally a tourist attraction- we were surrounded by people that looked just like us- but...omg. Totally worth it. It can't really be described- and it's probably better that way. If you want to be entertained....and have senory overload- and be completely confused - for an hour- DO THIS. I took my dad and we had a blast! Afterwards we went to a cheap ramen place nearby that was great! An wonderful evening well spent in Tokyo!
A great night's entertainment. Plenty of action and music.
So much activity crammed into a small area.
Definitely worth the experience.
This is an insanely cool, crazy show. You can easily take family, no problem. We loved it.
Had a great time! I recommend bringing cash for extra drinks and snacks.
OMG!!!!!! Totally amazing immersive experience. Great way to get introduced to Tokyo. You'll understand Akihabara so much more too. It's crazy, great fun and very very entertaining. They should tour the world with the show, it'd be a knock out. The energy is out of this world.
I take clients every time I go back
AMAZING! Was the highlight of my trip to Japan, absolutely brilliant show. Make sure to arrive early to make full use of the bar!
The Robot Show is something that you MUST NOT MISS. It is crazy, unique, funny, ridiculous, energized, once in a life time experience.
Wacky and fun, this is the type of show that will be hard to come by anywhere else you go! It takes a lot of the elements of Japanese culture and pushes them to the limit.
My partner and I were a little reluctant to book the Robot Restaurant at first due to the pricing, however, the show was brilliant and unlike anything we have ever seen. I would only recommend doing it once if it's your first time in Tokyo.
A very enjoyable experience well worth the money, the venue itself is small so your get a good view from where you sit and get close to the performers. A must see.
