The show was an abstract absurdity encompassed by amazing costumes, lights, dancing, and music. It doesn't make sense, but it's something to sit and enjoy the array of sensory stimuli. Would do again. It's a shame children aren't allowed.

There was such a *process* to check in. Here's my email to get a voucher, change the voucher for a numbered ticket, use the numbered ticket to sit in a seat and order food. Get there early! But when you do, just sit around and wait. And be called one by one into the venue. Put your stuff in lockers! You can't take anything in! It seemed like they needed so. much. control. over everything! Sign a waiver! MY GOODNESS, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?!? They make it like it's going to be such a raucous event (and it was - the show, at least), but so. many. reminders. To not use the flash on your phone. Don't stand up during the show. Don't get up on the stage (what the??) I mean, we're in JAPAN. It's such a respectful culture. I wouldn't expect to have to have those reminders! Anyway, it was hard to figure out how to behave. It's 2pm, but here's some alcohol! Order souvenirs! Buy more food! But don't do anything! Here's some crazy light wands to wave around! But don't go crazy! It was a MUCH smaller venue than I expected with a huge show, so I felt on display and yet didn't feel comfortable at all. ...so we just kind of quietly watched everything and left. The show was great. The dancers and singers were wonderful. I was just super uncomfortable the whole time.

I was impressed with as many 7 floats and many performers were on the stage at the same time! And no one got hurt with the coordination of the entertainment! WOW!

The music, costumes and dancing were all fantastic

Visit the newly rebranded Samurai Restaurant, formerly the Robot Restaurant, and get a glimpse into Shunjuku's red-light area culture. The highlight of the experience is the Kabukicho cabaret show, blending taiko drums, glamorously dressed dancers, and fantasy creatures in a 2.5-hour narrative spectacle. Choose from a variety of meals: Sukiyaki Bento with grilled meats and veggies, an appetizer set of mixed small dishes, Sushi Bento for fresh nigiri and rolls, or comforting noodle soups like Ramen or Udon. If you don't plan on eating, get the 2-drink option to sip on some smooth sake, fancy wine, or just some good old-fashioned beer.
