Japan's First Naked Restaurant

I read on RocketNews24 about Japan's first naked restaurant. It's set to open in Tokyo on July 29th and reservations can be made online.  I'm sure I won't be going.  Even if I wanted to go (which I don't - eww), they wouldn't allow me to eat there because I'm too fat!   There are restrictions on who can dine at this restaurant - only people age 18-60, with no tattoos, and who meet the body weight guidelines set by the restaurant.  If you look to be "overweight", there is a scale to weigh you and you will be denied entry if you weigh too much.  It's not a totally naked restaurant - the restaurant gives the diners paper underwear.  And, in case you are wondering, phones and cameras are locked away during the dining experience. So, what do you think, would you want to eat at the naked restaurant (wearing paper underwear, of course)?

  1. I think that in Tokyo you can find absolutely anything, food from every corner of the world, the cleanest of clean and the dirtiest of dirty, political views from the extreme right to the extreme left... Eating even a snack on the local train is a no-no, while packed lunches are sold from trolleys on the Bullet train - you are encouraged to eat in your seat.
    Restaurants can't be an exception to this wide spectrum, but I am wondering what kind of permissions the owners have had to get before opening such a joint.
    Actually I am not surprised, Japanese women are very relaxed about being seen in the nude in a hot spring dressing room, but when in the locker room at a swimming pool, the ladies wiggle in and out of their swimming costumes underneath a huge bath towel.
    This is a country of contrast!
    As to your question, no I would not want to eat in that restaurant! If it is a fancy place I'd rather want to dress up!

  2. No. I don't want to eat in the nude or be served in the nude. So I wonder why the body weight and other restrictions?
