crazy/ eccentric things to see in tokyo kyoto or osaka

we have mapped out most of our trip and things we want to see but I now want to fill in some gaps with things that are must see's but interesting in a weird and wonderful way. We are going to see harajuku at yoyogi park and hopefully alcatraz e.r, lockup and vampire cafe, can anyone recommend something that is a wonderfully strange must see in japan while we're there in april!

thanks so much!

Like what kind of themes? You mean like the Hard Rock?

<<<I would like to go to some theme restaurants while in Japan. Where can I find a list of such restaurants?>>>

I want to find out if there are theme restaurants in Japan like the Hello Kitty Cafe in Hong Kong or like the Toilet Bowl restaurant in Taiwan.

Hi

yeah all the places you mentioned are pretty crazy / eccentric.

check this page out for locations on the resturants.

Here is another weird one.

The mayonnaise kitchen they even have mayonnaise cocktails - how weird is that one.

web-japan.org/trends01/…020808fas_r.html

Here is the sight in Japanese. Its located in Tachikawa which is about 40 mins out of Tokyo.

But japan in general is just weird and crazy ive been here for 4 years and have found, experienced so many crazy wierd things.

Look out for the weird signs in incorrect english they are always a great laugh.

Im sure there is lots more just ride the trains and walk around and youll see plenty of weird crazy things just by pure chance.

Have a great trip to Japan.

We're going next month to Tokyo, and we were similarly interested in doing a couple of the theme restaurants. I'd like to add one that I found, but that I personally can't comment on the experience, being that I haven't been there yet.

It's the Ninja Restarant in Akasaka. They do not have an english version, but Google does an adequate job of at least getting the idea across. I found the restaurant independently and turns out that we are staying extremely close by - so we'll definitely be giving it a shot.

Thank you for this link. It sounds delicious. Japanese mayo is special and unlike no other I've ever had. Their use of it is quite interesting and I will definitely try to go to this restaurant in the future.
