TOKYO — Japan’s new naked restaurant to be opened in Tokyo next month has issued a disclaimer warning that obese and tattooed clients would be denied service and not admitted in the first place.

The Amrita — “immortality” in Sanskrit — restaurant opening July 29 is follows the trend set by other ‘naked’ restaurants in London and Melbourne, but sets stricter rules for its customers, RT online reported.

After customers check in their clothes they will be required to put on paper underwear provided by the restaurant.

“If you are more than 15 kilos [33lb] above the average weight for your height, we ask you refrain from making a reservation,” regulations published on restaurant’s website say.

The guests who look overweight will be asked to go to the scales, the rules maintain, advising that you should weight yourself ahead of dining at Amrita.

Reservations are made online and the restaurant insists all payments to be made in advance. In case a client is denied entry because of being overweight, no refund would be made for a ticket priced up to 80,000 yen (US$750).

All payments must be made in advance on an online booking page.

“In London they allow overweight patrons in and some guests complained they had a terrible experience,” Amrita spokeswoman Miki Komatsu said.

“If fat people are allowed in it could be miserable for some guests,” Ms Komatsu said.

“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,” she added.

The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.

Nirmala was found murdered in a sugarcane field on July 27, a day after she had gone to her friend’s home to get a notebook.
