Japan’s First ‘Naked Restaurant’ Says It Will Ban Overweight Diners

Japan’s first naked restaurant is set to open next month in Tokyo. As exciting as that sounds, they’ve announced that there is a strict dress code – no fat people.

That’s right, the owners have said that prospective diners will be weighed on entry and if they are too high over the threshold then they won’t be allowed to come in. What the actual fuck? Are they allowed to do that?

Not only are they banning fat people, but ‘The Amrita’ also has strict age restrictions, with only people who are between the ages of 18 and 60 allowed entry. If anyone is visiting or living in Japan and would like to experience the most elitist restaurant in the country, there are a list of rules on the website that you might want to check out before you make that decision. It says:

If you are more than 15 kilograms (33 pounds) above the average weight for your height, we ask you refrain from making a reservation.

And the restaurant, which officially opens on July 29th and only takes online payments in advance, has said that any guests who are overweight will not be entitled to a refund. I mean, are they trying to put people off? I know that most people are of a healthy weight in Japan, but to out overweight people like that is just super cruel.

Apparently tattooed customers are barred too, so I guess most people in the UK would not be permitted to enter. According to the website, guests will have to fork out up to £500 for a ticket and will be served food by muscly men wearing G-strings. Sounds more like a weird Chip ‘n’ Dale show than a classy restaurant.
