Bizarre Tokyo at it's finest!

One of the weirdest experiences ever! This is a restaurant with a difference. At first when you arrive it all seems relatively normal. Until Mr Kagaya turns on the crazy!

Nothing can prepare you for the Kagaya experience. It is raw and at times in your face, but one of those must do experiences in Tokyo! I haven't laughed so much in ages- and I mean huge belly ache laughs with tears running down my face! The venue is tucked away downstairs of a tall building but isnt too hard... More

Hidden at the bottom of a tall building in Minato, Tokyo lives Kagaya, a one man show with many faces. If you came to Japan for the weird and wonderful then you'll love this. Please make a reservation when you arrive in tokyo, best time would be around 8pm as it closes at 12am and takes roughly 2 hours, make... More

WOW! Just go. Do not dare visit Tokyo without visiting the incredible Kagaya! Such a surprising, fun and unique experience, with wonderful, reasonably priced and varied food in generous portions too. Our favourite dining experience of many during our time in Japan!

This is one of Tokyo's hidden gems that like the robot restaurant and others in Tokyo will be killed by an entry into the Lonely Planet. I would encourage any visitor to stop reading up about it and just book a table. It's not cheap but experiences like this cannot be found on every street corner. Be prepared to laugh.

If you don't feel comfortable with dick jokes don't go there, otherwise, you'll have the best experience ever.

Probably the closest thing to acid without taking it. This crazy deadpan japanese man will greet you and sit you down on the floor. Then without warning he will transform into the most bizarre dinner spectacle you've ever seen. My friend and I did not stop laughing the entire time. The owner/server/performer/maniac that owns this place should design the opening... More

This is a restaurant where a Japanese man named Mark will dress up like a frog, make you sing your order to him, and serve you incredibly good food cooked by (maybe?) his mom, who just kind of hangs out in the back, seemingly oblivious or not caring about the bizarre antics that are happening. It's EXACTLY what you want... More

My Japanese friends brought me here and said it’ll be an experience I’ll never forget. They got that part right. It was as if I took a wrong turn through Knockturn alley (Harry Potter), and got transported into a comical land ruled by one man with multiple faces and personalities. I came out half traumatised (and terrorised) – apparently a... More

It was a bit hard to find because it has only a small standing sign outside and you have to go down into a basement, but what an amazing experience! We were told to go there without looking into what the whole visit entails beforehand, so we did and the surprise alone was worth every penny we paid(and it wasn't... More

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
