You can now eat naked in Japan … but you’ll have to meet THIS criteria to dine in
FIRST there was raw, now there’s such a thing as a naked restaurant.
Dressing is optional in Tokyo’s The Amita, but we’re not talking about for your salad.http://cafe4apps.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/ou-can-skip-your-clothes-at-this-restaurant-in-japan-683656-1.jpg
The Japanese restaurant is the latest to jump on the new food fad taking the culinary world by storm: naked dining.
Opening on July 29, customers will be able to forgo their clothes for some al-fresco fine dining as part of an Adam and Eve-themed banquet.
Amrita, which is sanskrit for ‘immortality’, is hoping the experience will allow patrons to enjoy a meal in a ‘natural style’, serving up an organic menu, fit for the Gods.
It won’t be fully nude either, with customers offered either a Roman-style toga or paper underwear while eating.
But with prices starting from £102 and going up to as much as £200, the experience is certainly not cheap.
There is also a long list of rules for customers – and if you don’t meet the tough criteria, you’re not coming in.
Anyone under the age of twenty or over sixty will be turned away and customers that are carrying a little extra around the tummy won’t be able to join in on the festivities either.
In a list of rules on their website, Amrita disclaim that customers weighting 15kg more than the average for their height will be barred from entering.
A spokeswoman for Amrita, Miki Komatsu explained the reason why to
“If fat people are allowed in it could be miserable for some guests. 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.”
The restaurant will make exemptions however if you are blessed aesthetically with the restaurant claiming the decision is at their own discretion.
Keen nudists should note that you can only shed your clothes once inside.
On hand to help whet your appetite though, is a dance show with muscly waiters performing in just a g-string.
But while you might like to take a cheeky selfie, photography and phones are banned.
Japan’s naked restaurant comes weeks after Melbourne and London hosted their own naked meals. In London’s Soho, restaurant Bunyadi’s first naked night went down a storm with punters.
Serving up a wood-flame grilled meals with edible cutlery, the pop-up venue is the first of its kind in the capital.
While it is open for three months, you might struggle to get a ticket with 29,000 people signing up to the waiting list before the doors even opened earlier this month.
Prices are considerably lower too, with courses offered at £55 per person.
