Unusual Tokyo Eatery: Haunted Restaurant
If spooky is your thing, take a trip to Haunted Restaurant, a ghost-themed restaurant located just three minutes from JR Hachioji Station.
The premise is that you’re visiting a haunted mansion inhabited with friendly ghosts who love to entertain guests—so be prepared to expect the unexpected.
The restaurant offers several set meal and drink plans, making it an ideal venue for fun get-togethers with friends. The “Phantom Manor Course” (¥2,800) comes with an all-you-can-eat menu of 50 dishes, desserts, and all-you-can-drink non-alcoholic beverages, and the “Nightmare Course” (¥2,300) with 30 all-you-can-eat dishes, one dessert, and all-you-can-drink non-alcoholic beverages.
There’s also an alcoholic all-you-can-drink option (¥1,200), and for an extra ¥300, you can even order as many of Haunted’s original cocktails as you want. These fun cocktails come served in syringes, test tubes, and beakers, making the drinking experience that much more exciting. The creatively-named “Saiketsu Shokoratie” (“Blood-gathering Chocolatier”) and “Kansen Deadwalker” (“Infectious Deadwalker”) cocktails (¥750) come with a Godiva chocolate cocktail and berry cocktail in syringes, which you must then pour onto a beaker of marshmallows and cotton candy, respectively.
Food options include french fries, fried chicken, pasta, beef stew, and more dishes that can be shared by many.
As the unbearably hot Japanese summer begins, Haunted Restaurant might be the perfect place to cool down in an entertaining, shiver-inducing atmosphere.
