Thanks for everyone who watched me on Food Network TV — I appreciate your messages! I was the Tokyo Goth expert guide to Christon Cafe, on the new program “World’s Weirdest Restaurants.”

My purple Gothic dress is gifted by Gloomth. The jewelry was loaned by Strange Freak: a collection inspired by hide of X Japan. I also modeled the accessories in these photos (yes, I have hostess hair).

Naomi and I fixed (organized the local production) of all the Tokyo TV episodes. We cast our spooky friends in this Goth restaurant scene. (For more about our film/TV fixing services, visit our Pirates website.)

I spoke about Japanese dark fashion and culture, and how it fits in with the theme of Christon Cafe.

We ate vampiric bloody rolls, and Tower of Babel salad. Even the menu looks like a Bible!

The relics in the room came from actual Eastern European churches. Sacrilege, or silly? Visit Christon Cafe and decide for yourself.

Address: Oriental Wave Building 8F, 5-17-13 Shinjuku, Tokyo.

What do you think of this fishing-themed restaurant? Cruel, or kooky?

    Wow, having fish that fresh would actually be a godsend here! I may have an intolerance (presents like the flu/allergies) to biogenic amines…which basically means, the older a food is, the more problems it will cause to my health (cuz chemicals like histamine increase rapidly with age, especially with fish!) So, that place would be perfect. ♥ Of course Tokyo does what I love , as usual!

    Oh… as a vegetarian, I think it’s cruel, but unusual too. (You look great in the photos;)

    Its normal for me. Philippines have that on a fishing farm/restaurant. Or you point then they’ll get it for u to b cooked.

    No crueler than when its killed for you before it reaches the grocery store. no crueler than the lobster tank at red lobster. its old school. just the way humans have done it since the beginning of time.

    Despite being a Vegan I actually think the fish place is pretty cool, it’s a lot less cruel than some of the practices of large fishing vessels, it’s fresher and I’ve always said if you’re going to eat an animal then you should be able to look it in the eye before it dies. (FYI I have nothing against people who choose to eat meat or fish, it’s just not what I choose to do).
