Many people will be in for a big surprise as a n*ked restaurant opens in Japan next month. The restaurant is similar to the ones obtainable in London and Melbourne.
However, unlike its English and Australian equivalents, the Amarita in Tokyo won’t permit diners to be completely uncovered – instead they’ll be provided with paper underpants, while staff will wear g-strings.
Explaining more, RocketNews24 reports that diners will only be allowed in if they’re aged between 18 and 60, and if they’re free of tattoos.
Also, people more than 15 kilograms over ‘average body weight’ will be prohibited from entering.
For its opening event the Amarita is advertising an “Adam and Eve” style banquet. RocketNews24 says: “Along with the delights of an organic menu, diners will be able to feast their eyes on a ‘Men’s Show’ dance performance on stage featuring only the best of the best American and European male models.”
Tickets for the dinner and show event, priced between 12,000 and 80,000 yen (£78 and £520), are sold out, with dinner-only reservations still available at between 14,000 yen and 28,000 yen (£90 and £180).
The venue opens its doors on 29 July – but it’s currently unclear whether it’ll be a short-term pop-up affair or a regular feature of the Tokyo dining scene.
London’s na ked restaurant, the Bunyadi, opens this month and has a waiting list in excess of 45,000.
According to the masterminds behind the restaurant, the “Pangaea-like” enterprise aims to liberate people from the “trappings of the industrialised-world”. Mobile phones and photographs will be banned.
