Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon -Shining Moon Tokyo- (美少女戦士セーラームーン -SHINING MOON TOKYO-) was a Sailor Moon show restaurant located in Azabu-Juuban, Tokyo, Japan, the main setting of the series. Specifically, it was in the underground of Joule A, the real-life building in the location Osa-P jewellers occupied. It opened on August 15, 2019, and closed in February 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In July 2020 the restaurant announced that the closure would be permanent.

The restaurant served Sailor Moon-themed food and drinks from both a lunch and dinner menu, as well as original merchandise. Customers could take photos at a special spot with a moon and red curtains, or view the costumes of the show cast in glass display cases.

Three times a day during dinner hours an exclusive stage show was performed. The voice of Luna could be heard giving the audience directions when the show was about to start. The performance was about forty minutes long and had two actresses cast for each of the main roles, so the performing cast varied each day. It was produced by Nelke Planning, the same company responsible for the new wave of Sailor Moon musicals that began in 2013.

The performance had very little dialogue, similar to the The Super Live, to reduce the language barrier for foreign guests. Some explanations of the scenes were displayed on screen, spoken by Luna and subtitled in English. The audience was only allowed to film/photograph the show during the curtain call, while the cast performed "Moonlight Densetsu."
