The Master will blow your mind

The Master (the chap who runs Kagaya) should be a millionaire. The experience he offers is so unique and mind altering that you happily overlook the fairly average food on offer. I reckon it's only a matter of time until trendy sorts in Shoreditch in Brooklyn try to imitate kagaya but there can... read more

Kagaya is, without question, one of the most hilarious, ridiculous and weirdest things I've ever seen and I absolutely loved it. Having seen my fair share of funny things, this is up with with co.edy performances worth flocking to Edinburgh for or anything by Sacha Baron Cohen - in fact, think of it as just that and get there without...

Mark's entertaining dinner experience is a one of a kind, only-in-Tokyo event. I've now been 3 times, and although his shtick doesn't change much, it's always fun. The meal will not be the highlight, but it is worth a visit.

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! Just producing the drinks menu was a crazy performance. We ordered our drinks and then had to choose in what style we’d like the drinks served (Brazillian, French, American, Japanese... More

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

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.
