Yes, a Prison-Themed Restaurant Exists in Japan
Their torture steak is a must-try!
If you consider yourself a fearless foodie, then you might want to visit The Lockup, a kangoku (prison) restaurant in Japan. It's not exactly traditional Japanese fare, if those test tube drinks on Instagram are any indication, but it's an experience you won't soon forget.
Just making your way to the entrance is bound to give you chills. First, you'll need to pass through several trick rooms; then, you'll be "arrested" and handcuffed by the police (guide staff) who will guide you through a dark corridor to your own prison cell.
Once there, prison guards (store managers), prisoners (hall staff), and monsters will treat you with frightening hospitality.
With that kind of welcome, don't be surprised to see cocktails with eyeballs and dishes that look like monsters on the menu.
A must-order: their niku no kyoen kanbo tokushu dinner (¥5,800). This meat feast special is a two-hour course that includes 10 of their popular dishes, all-you-can-drink original cocktails and Eyeball Monster Show.
