Themed Restaurants in Japan – Freak Show Central

Themed Restaurants that make you think What The?

Every night of my G Adventures trip to Japan involved going out and eating some great Japanese food. The variety of cuisine is almost endless and the kind of stuff available is mind boggling.

However as a change, one night was spent eating in one of the numerous Themed Restaurants in Tokyo – which was a thin disguise for a freak show!

The food probably wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, but this was an interesting insight into the bizarre dining options that are available in Japan.

The particular establishment visited was a cross between a horror movie and a hospital as far as I could guess – and was called Alcatraz E.R.

And this was the greeting at the entrance. A syringe and a nurse with a mustache! Just plain weird!

‘Food’ at the Themed Restaurant!

When the menu came out, I wondered if I was part of a very large practical joke! I guess this ‘banana smoothie’ started things off on the strange foot!

You can even be locked up for dinner if you really want to.

Hopefully the waiters remember to let you out at the end of the night!

You can even suck your drink out of a doll’s head, and use a syringe if you really want to.
