This is Japan catering for foreigners who come to Japan disappointed that it doesn’t resemble something they saw in a manga comic. Despite the name, it is not actually a restaurant (the menu consists of three bento boxes, each of which would cost about ¥800 at a convenience store); rather it is an hour-long show of lights, lasers, props, noise, more lights, scantily-clad women (senjo or “war girls”—a term apparently coined by the establishment), and more lasers.
