In the district of Kabukicho, the mecca of gentlemen’s entertainment in Tokyo, seizure-inducing flashing neon lights advertise the thousand and one earthly delights one can experience for money.
Here the robots have their own techno-cabaret.
In the stroboscopic set of blinks and flashes, the Robot Restaurant highlights dinner with a unique performance; gigantic female machines, with Valkyrie torsos and Gundam engine legs on wheels will dance and pirouette in an spectacle much closer to “ParaPara” (synchronized Japanese dancing) choreography than to an actual striptease.
Modeled on video game characters, their cyborg faces mimic a large variety of positive emotions, rolling rhythmic eyes in their synthetic sockets, and equipped with “pneumatic busts” that can grow on demand.
Each of these clockwork amazons is piloted by one or two actual living, breathing bikini gogo dancers.
Video is about a year old, so doesn’t feature this newest addition, but gives you an idea of the brain-melting cacophony of the place.
Address for those in Tokyo:
B2F Shinjuku Robot Bldg, 1-7-1 Kabukicho Shinjuku-ku, Shinjuku, Japan
