Sad news for those who are overweight, elderly and tattooed as you won't be able to enjoy a naked dining experience. Japan's first ever naked restaurant is set to open soon and the "Adam and Eve-style banquet" is making it clear that the diners need to meet some strict criteria on appearance, the Independent reported. Japanese diners have already shown they are keen with tickets, ranging in price from 90 pounds for a meal to pounds for food and dance show, sold out for several nights including the opening one. Rules on the restaurant's website state: "We ask anyone more than 15 kg above the average weight for their height to refrain from making a reservation. Guests can see the guidelines clearly on our homepage. We are aiming for a sort of Roman aesthetic, like the beautiful paintings you see in museums. At the restaurant, it will be highly forbidden to touch people and tattooed patrons will not be allowed entry. Diners must also leave their phones at the door to abstain from conversations with others. The age limit is 18 to Unlike other nudist restaurants in London or Melbourne, diners at Amrita will be issued light garments made of paper to cover their intimate areas.
Tokyo diners will be able to eat almost naked as long as they meet some strict criteria on appearance. Full nudity is off the menu, with guests to be issued with paper underwear. And if you are overweight or over 60 your chances of dining at the restaurant are slim.
The Amrita, named for the Sanskrit word for "immortality," is scheduled to open July 29 in Tokyo, following on the clothes-free heels of similar nude dining experiences in London and Australia. The Tokyo eatery's website lists some important differences from its overseas counterparts, including bans on tattoos, people over the age of 60 and anyone whose weight is 33 or more pounds over the "average body weight" for their height. The website says customers will not be completely nude for their meals, instead trading in their street clothes for "paper underpants" provided by the establishment. The Amrita also boasts "Men's Show" performances featuring male models from the United States and Europe dancing in G-string underwear.
Please refresh the page and retry. J apan's first "naked restaurant" will be far less inclusive than its London counterpart when it opens its doors next month, imposing strict weight and age limits on its prospective patrons. And anyone expecting full nudity with their hors d'oeuvres will be disappointed as well; diners are going to be issued with paper underwear for their meal.
