With the ever-growing trend of naked restaurants, it’s no wonder that Japan wants to join in on all the nude, sweaty fun.
A few weeks ago, a restaurant called Bunyadi opened up in London and specializes in catering to the naked. This all-nude restaurant was made to bring people back to their primal roots. Is there anything more natural than eating in the nude? Although you are encouraged to let your loose, floppy, hanging skin droop all over the place, there is also a clothed section for people who aren’t particularly interested in penis-watching.
The food is grown locally while the men are imported from Sweden or an Ivy League College.
Well, in order to keep up, a similarly-themed restaurant called The Amrita is opening up in Tokyo, Japan, on July 29th. This restaurant, however, varies from the English counterpart in that not all are welcome. The Bunyadi invites anyone of any size or age to enjoy their food free from all the trappings of the modern world, while The Amrita requires that you meet certain…expectations.
According to Rocket News 24, The Amrita won’t be a totally nude restaurant. As is typical in Japanese culture, hygiene is taken very seriously, so guests will be provided with “paper underpants” as opposed to letting their junk rub up on everything, which would be a way cooler restaurant in my opinion.
The “paper underwear” I imagine guests are given at the door. Kinda hot TBH.
The details surrounding this new restaurant are murky at best. Many of the packages and options available range widely from 12,000-80,000 yen (or $122-$563). The rules that you’re required to follow would cause a nationwide riot if we tried to apply them to an all nude restaurant here in the states.
Firstly, you cannot be overweight to eat at this restaurant. If you are 33 lbs. or more overweight (according to the standard BMI measures applied based on your height), you will be rejected at the door with no money back. Secondly, only people between the ages of 18 and 60 are allowed in, and will require their ages to be verified at the door. Roughly 3.5% of Japan is considered obese, while we here in America are closer to the 30% range, so these rules might not be as restricting to potential guests as we might think. Still, getting turned away at the door for being too fat certainly won’t feel good.
The variety in prices makes me think these men are for sale. Is that legal? Also, anyone wanna split one with me? Could be fun.
The restaurant will also be providing a show with the dinner, and considering the overall theme, it’s likely to involve some nudity. The website, still being regularly updated, even has a tab that displays all of the scantily clad male servers that will be working at the restaurant, although it currently has a stock photo where their images are supposed to be.
I don’t know what it says, but the English words I found were still pretty entertaining.
As of now, the restaurant seems to be open for only 3 days, July 29-31, and of those three days, two of them are already completely sold out. Only time will tell if it will be worth it for these naked nibblers to visit.
