Having originally laid down the rules of no overweight or elderly patrons, Japan’s first naked restaurant has been forced to bend the rules. The restaurant, Amrita was due to open in Tokyo but has faced backlash due to its strict weight and age limits. Its website stated that patrons that were over 15kg above their BMI or those aged over 60.
Scales would be readily available to ensure these rules would be enforced. Amrita has backtracked and announced it will embrace anyone aged 20 to 120 with no weight restrictions.
The ban on tattoos is still in place, and this is because tattoos are largely considered taboo in Japan because of links to the criminal world.
Although it is a ‘naked restaurant’ diners are required to wear paper underwear while they eat.
