Giant Female Robots On Wheels
Just another night in Kabuki-chō – stylishly mufflered hosts trying their damnedest to charm women off the street and into their clubs, hucksters with their ero-comics laid out for sale on blankets along the main boulevard, and giant female robots being trailered through the streets.
Accompanied by a billboard truck blasting ads, these beauties were shilling for the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku. A chain of eateries in which the cuisine is clearly not the main attraction, Robot Restaurant features a bevy of women posing as rather scantily-clad robots who dance and play taiko drums while shaking their nuts and bolts three times a night.
Jonelle Patrick is the author of the Only In Tokyo mystery series, now out for the first time in paperback
