Tired of going to the zoo, art museums, national parks? To be honest, most people aren’t the most creative when it comes to thinking of a unique place to visit. However, what you do not know is that there are many weird and quirky attractions around the world that will blow your imagination away. Today, we bring you 8 of the weirdest attractions agreed by travelers around the world.
1. Robot Restaurant
Tokyo hasn’t seen anything like this since the Bubble Era. Every night in a basement in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district, enormous robots rule and parade the stage – though it’s more steroid-enhanced fairground attraction than modern-day Gundam. Fitted out at a cost of ¥10 billion, Robot Restaurant looks like something straight out of Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void, all migraine-inducing neon, video screens and mirrors.
Customers pay a ¥6,000 charge, but the Bubble Era comparisons end there: rather than massively marked-up Ballantines and Beaujolais Nouveau, the drink menu only extends as far as canned beer, chu-hai and bottled tea, sold at the kind of prices you’d expect at a baseball game. The entry fee also includes a bento box, though you’d find tastier fare in an average convenience store. There are three hour-long shows each night, in which the staff take to the floor on giant robots, including a neon tank.
