In German it’s called schadenfreude, or the joy derived from the misfortune of others. In Japanese, it’s batsu: a game where the loser is forced to endure hilarious and outrageous penalties for the sadistic pleasure of the winner! Come along and watch the intense physical comedy that comes forth when four warriors battle it out to avoid electric shocks, paintball guns, and giant egg-smashing chickens to see who is the most fearless (and least embarrassed) of the contestants. This curious cultural competition will add humor, adventure, and fun to your night out!

Note: You must be 18 years or older to attend. A free carafe of premium sake is included with each VIP ticket. With 2 VIP tickets purchased in a booking, you will receive a free order of edamame and an official BATSU! Hachimachi (headband) - BONUS: wearing the hachimachi before and during the show will result in cast members randomly coming up and doing FREE shots of sake with you!
