Ninja restaurant

Last Saturday went to a “ninja” restaurant, where the waiters are “real” ninja. When you enter the restaurant you to go through some dangerous narrow passages with mysterious ninja stuff. At the end you arrive to a little ninja village and you enter a house/cave with your table.

In order to call your waiter you have to press a hidden button that is at the bottom of the table. Then a fast ninja will come running and shouting weird stuff ending his performance next to your table doing a ninja salutation (Both hands together with index fingers pointing to the roof) and giving you a scroll (The restaurant’s menu).

Ninja greeting.

Foot was pretty good but it was a little bit more expensive than in restaurants of the same level. From 6.000 until 10.000 yens per person.

Scroll formated menu.

Detail of the scroll where they suggest you to ask for ninja help.

During the dinner a “special ninja” comes to your table and performs a show with pretty amazing little magic tricks. Then you can talk about the tricks during the rest of the dinner time. At the end of the dinner, a ninja goes with you till the street and….

There was not many people walking over there at that moment.

For the people interested here you have the restaurant’s website with a map , it’s next to the Akasaka Mitsuke metro station at Tokyo. You can even celebrate a ninja wedding party! here you have the special plan for weddings.

    They have one of these in NYC also. It was a one time thing for sure, kind of fun for a special event though. I also felt it was a little pricey.

    So this branch of ninjas have gone from assassinating people to assassinating live lobsters and fixing them for dinner. I’m Italian and I think the Italian mafia has gone a similar route.
