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.
