Stephanie and I are taking our spring break trip to Japan in about a month. Now is the time for the more experienced Japan travelers among you to make your suggestions about what to see.
I'm looking through TimeOut Tokyo right now. Maybe I'm a sucker and these are Japan's answer to lame stuff like Planet Hollywood, but these themed restaurants sound cool:
The Lock-Up: "On arrival at this prison-themed izakaya, you'll be asked if it's your first visit. Just say 'Hai." After this, you will be handcuffed by the waitress and led to your cell... Every hour, the monsters escape from jail to terrorize diners, until they are brought under control by police girls clad in unfeasibly short skirts."
Ninja: "On arrival you are ushered through a series of winding wooden corridors designed to evoke old village Japan by a waiter dressed as a ninja warrior. Thereafter, waiters continue to pop out of unlikely places and sneak up with menus and food. There's also an itinerant magician."
