Japan’s first ‘naked restaurant’ soon to open, overweight diners barred to enter

  • Japan is set to launch its first ‘naked restaurant’ in Tokyo on July 29
  • Named ‘The Amrita’, the restaurant has a set of rules to be followed like age restrictions and correct weight range
  • Overweight diners are barred to enter

Japan’s first-ever ‘naked restaurant’  named ‘The Amrita’ — Sanskrit for ‘immortality’ is set to open in Tokyo on July 29.

But unlike other traditional dining places, the establishment implements numerous rules like age restrictions and correct weight range which means that ‘fat diners will be banned’, an article written by John Hutchinson for Daily Mail stated.

As written in the restaurant’s list of rules posted on the establishment’s website page it states: ‘If you are more than 33lb above the average weight for your height, we ask you to refrain from making a reservation’; further explaining that patrons could be weighed if they do not appear to be within the correct weight range.

Those found to be overweight cannot enter the restaurant and can no longer refund any cash outs as all payments are made in advance via online booking on their page.

Taking after the lead of establishments in London and Melbourne, the soon-to-be-opened dining place shall also strictly implement strict age limits; with only those between 18 and 60 years of age to be allowed in, after they check in their clothes and put on paper underwear provided by the restaurant.

In addition to this, restaurant rules require visitors not to ’cause a nuisance to other guests’ by touching or talking to fellow diners. By the way, tattooed customers are likewise barred from entry.

Patrons who qualify for the restaurant’s entry requirements will be asked to lock away mobile phones and cameras in a table-top box.

For a ticket price of  up to 80,000 yen (£520 or $750), diners are entitled to eat food which will be served by muscle-bound men wearing g-strings and a chance to watch a dance show featuring male models.

Patrons have the option to avail of meal tickets without the show that will cost from 14,000 (£90, $130), to 28,000 yen (£180, $260); depending on choice of menu.
