The Lockup (Tokyo, Japan)
Never been to prison now is your chance, plus you get to eat and I’m sure the food is much better than prison food.
“There is a terrifyingly fun izakaya (Japanese restaurant) called The Lock Up in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Here, guests dine on grotesque delicacies, mix potions into creepy cocktails, and fight to stay alive against psychotic killers. It’s definitely a tacky, tourist trap, but it’s definitely a fun, blood curdling night out. I highly recommend going there for something off the typical beat and path in tourist Tokyo.” (Youtube)
The restaurant also provided entertainment. “Three times a night the entire restaurant experiences a blackout and there is a monster show that is quite terrifying. Even though I was expecting it, and even though I knew it was a fellow human being inside the monster costume, I was really, really scared. Hideous monsters roam through the dark hallway and even open the prison cell doors and enter the cells.” (Savy Tokyo)
