Japanese restaurant that offered slaps on payment stops the rare service | Trending News


When you choose a restaurant for dining out, you consider the menu and the ambience that the place offers. However, a restaurant in Japan offered “slaps before meals” and it attracted many patrons.

The restaurant named ‘Shachihoka-ya’ is located in Japan’s Nagoya city. According to an article in the New York Post, customers paid to be slapped on their faces before their meals.

A video posted on X, formerly Twitter, by the user (@bangkoklad) shows kimono-dressed waitresses slapping customers. As the video went viral, Shachihoko-ya took to X to inform that the restaurant does not offer slaps anymore.

“Shachihoko-ya currently does not offer slaps. We appreciate the attention it has received today, but we cannot accommodate visits with the intention of receiving slaps. We didn’t expect old videos to go viral like this, so please understand before coming,” it posted on X on November 29.

The restaurant offered slaps starting from 300 Japanese Yen (Rs 170 approximately) and if one chooses to be slapped from specific staff members, it can go up to 500 Yen (Rs 285).

The restaurant is popular among both men and women, locals and tourists alike. They enjoy the slaps so much that they thank their assailants for the violent service, according to the article.

First opened in 2012, the restaurant was in danger of closing, which was when this bizarre custom was introduced. And business began to thrive after this stunt, so much so that more women waitresses needed to be hired to meet the demand.
