I was a little time-poor, so I decided to work with some old footage today.
We went to Japan for my 30th birthday last November. Holy flippin’ flaps it was bloody amazing.
The Robot Restaurant was a Tokyo highlight. We were taken there by the truly gorgeous Fashion Hayley, who is a former Tokyo resident and a Japanese culture wizard, capable of ordering vegetarian food and navigating the epic train stations (things I never quite mastered).
The experience can’t really be described with words – a great excuse to watch the video! But if you also want a verbal account, well, it was like being 11 years old and drinking red cordial for hours while you alternate between games of Robo-Dinosaur vs Unicorn (with glowsticks taped all over your body), and breakdancing and drum competitions (whilst wearing a rainbow mullet wig), then somehow eventually falling asleep, only to find yourself in the dream that is the Robot Restaurant.
Only in Japan.
