She’s electric: Japanese robot bar tempts customers with giant, scantily clad dancing robots – controlled by REAL women

Perhaps in Tokyo it’s not quite as alarming  to see a flatbed truck with two gigantic robotic women driving through traffic – but as the vehicle wound its way through Shinjuku yesterday, it was advertising  a very special restaurant.

The ‘Robot Restaurant’ offers ‘cabaret  dances’ from giant robots – looking like plastic women, but with robotic lower  halves.

The £83 million restaurant will let customers  operate the ‘fem-bots’ – but staff will also ‘steer’ the performers as they  dance for visitors.

The robots operated by real women dressed in  military and  other outfits will perform ‘cabaret’ dances for its  customers.

The robots are themed after the character  Valkyrie in the game Soul Calibur.

The restaurant is located near the heart of  Kabuchiko in Shinjuku.

A flat fee of 3000 Yen – £25 – allows entry  to the robot show and a drink.

Sushi is also served – although local  reviewers say that it’s difficult to ignore the hour-long ‘show’.

Not only are there dancing robots, there are  drummers, tanks, and fighter aircraft.

The robot bar is advertised with a truck with  two of its performers – and a man dressed (vaguely) as Boba Fett.

‘ The portions served are  rather small and  you’ll probably forget about it once the neon  extravaganza is underway,’ said  Japan Today.

‘Truly the main reason to visit Robot  Restaurant is the performance which goes on twice a night from Monday to Saturday.’
