The art and technology dining experience
An argument can be made that all experience dining is art. The design and look of the food. The art and décor of the restaurant. Something can even be said about the kinds of food on the menu. But if you’re looking for real art, if you’re looking for a dining experience like no other, make your way down to Yoyogi Park, Tokyo, Japan.
What to expect
TREE by NAKED is a revolutionary restaurant that combines artwork, music and lighting, as well as high-end immersive technology such as virtual reality and projection mapping, to create one single dining experience.
Your experience will take place on three separate floors. As your meal progresses, you’ll enter newly themed rooms with different dishes crafted expertly to match the story.
Witness the life of a tree from birth to rebirth. You can expect six different meals representing birth, spur, expansion, phantasm, unity, and rebirth. You’ll also see two performances that truly help bring the experience to life.
How to book
The dining experience is limited as the venue can fit only eight people per complete booking course. You must make reservations to dine at TREE by NAKED, which can be done over on their course page.
The experience costs 30,000 yen (almost £200) per person, not including tax. It’s a pricey experience, but for a six-course deluxe meal with cutting edge art and technology and a show, the price quickly becomes reasonable.
You can book your experience paired with either alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks.
Beyond the experience
The restaurant doesn’t limit itself to a low capacity show each day. When the TREE by NAKED experience isn’t in play, hungry customers can order a take out meal from their café. From 10 am to 4 pm, you can purchase gourmet food such as melts, salads and smoothies, as well as seasonal items on offer for a limited time. This is a far more affordable way for diners to experience the fresh and artistic plates on offer.
