Advance reservations were made for our party of eight by contacting the Robot Restaurant by phone. The published ticket price was 5,000 yen, but we took advantage of a 20% discount ticket printed in Metropolis Magazine. Note: show electronic coupon or bring original ad from magazine (copies are not acceptable). The seats are a tight squeeze, so be sure to keep large items in lockers near the front entrance. Dinner included: bento box, salmon or chicken, green tea. Beer and Chu-hi’s are also available for around 500 yen. Get ready for a certain kind of craziness you can only find in Japan! From Taiko drummers in bikinis, to feeling submerged underwater while face to face with a great white shark, and thrilling Robot Wars, I think it’s a must see when here (but not for small children)!

Originally from San Diego, California, I lived in Japan for 4-1/2 years and now I am currently based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. In December 2010, I arrived in Yokosuka with a new outlook on my future. Mainly, to refocus on family and let my curiosities take us to places we’ve only dreamt of. Along the way, we’d hopefully develop new friendships and simply collect memories to last a lifetime. Then, there was the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. I will never forget that experience and the devastating effects it had on the entire country. I asked the community, “What can I do to help?” Collecting, sorting, and packing donations, was the least I could do. I also ended up going back to California for one month, raised a small monetary donation for Red Cross, and secured a few phone interviews to help spread the word on how others from the United States could assist. I was determined to show my family, friends, and folks across the world that it would be okay to return to Japan. After all, I wanted them to know that all of the little things that make up this beautiful country still existed. What better way than to use a platform such as JapanTravel.com to share photos and stories full of life, history, and culture. It is a pleasure to say I have contributed more than 150 articles to a database that now collectively holds more than 15,000! This journey has not only allowed me to realize my initial goals, but I’d like to think that it has somehow played a role in sparking an interest locally and across the globe for others to experience all that is published here and more. I invite you to also share your wonderful stories, offer comments, and ask questions right here on JapanTravel. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Safe travels! ٩( ๑╹ ꇴ╹)۶
