Wonderfully surprised by this unexpected treat!
This is one of my favorite lyrics, brought to you by Switchfoot, whom we got to see in concert last week.
While we see so much darkness in the world, remember we can only see these shadows because there is some light to cast them.
Yay! They’re back! The Photo of the Week was on a bit of a hiatus while I wrapped up the Japan posts, but I now welcome them back with open arms.
For a truly wild spectacle, check out the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku (follow the giant light signs; it’s hard to miss). The name is a slight misnomer, as this is primarily a show, with snacks, sushi bento boxes, and drinks available for separate purchase. This is certainly geared toward tourists, with everything predominantly in English. They pack about 200 people into a tight room, and proceed to parade wifi-controlled floats and extravagant illuminated robots. Cute Japanese girls dance and fill the room with thunder on the taiko. The animatronics reach out and right over the audience; it’s amazing how they can fit these things in such a small room. Music, laser battles, lights, dancing, robots!
