10 Restaurants you have to eat at in Tokyo

10 Craziest Restaurants in Tokyo

Japan has some of the best food that I have ever seen. I was totally obsessed with it. I wanted to eat everything. ALWAYS. The best thing about Tokyo is all the themed restaurants that they had! I want to share the 10 best with you so you can prioritize your eats. Tokyo is the kind of city where you can be 100% unapologetically you. And everyone will love you for it. You can tell just by the restaurants they have! These 10 your definitely can’t miss!!

1. Kawaii Cafe

I learned by the end of my trip that Kawaii in Japanese actually means ‘Cute’. I just assumed it meant monster because I spent almost an entire day at the Kawaii Monster Cafe. This place is bananas. Like I have said before – I am NOT a city girl. I love to be on the beach, in the small towns, or surrounded by mountains. However this concrete jungle stole my heart because of all the amazing and unique places to eat.

Because who doesn’t want to watch giant robots do ballet while you eat? This place is like 1 giant seizure waiting to happen. Lights, cameras, ACTION. WELCOME TO TOKYO BABY.

6. Lock Up

WARNING – this is where things get weird. This place is just what it sounds like. You roll up, they lock you up, and then feed you dinner in a jail cell. Everyone’s dream come true I am sure. You bucket list probably has “Eat a meal in prison” on it. Why not head to Tokyo and try it there.

How to find them:

JR Shinjuku Station, East Entrance

7.Alcatraz ER

WARNING EVEN WEIRDER- this place is currently trending on Facebook because not only do they lock you up in a jail cell, but they feed you out of bed pans and urinals and they stir your drinks with sex toys. I am not joking you – this place is real. THIS IS WHY I LOVE TOKYO. Just because things like this exist there.
