The man behind the idea of monkey waiters in japanese restaurant
This creative idea of employing monkeys as the waiters boasted the business of Kaoru Otsuka, who is the owner of Kayabukiya Tavern. This idea came to his mind when he once saw seventeen years old ‘Fuku-chan’ serving towel to the customers when asked to do so. People regularly visit Kayabukiya for the mouth-watering food and the adorable service by appealing monkeys. Furthermore, the pleasing service always makes them visit again with a winning smile.
‘They are my family and I love them like my kids’ said Otsuka, he unconditionally loves Fuku-chan and Yat-chan. His affection for these two is beyond the limits. He is training three new baby monkeys this year to make this new generation customer pleasing waiters more professional and cheerful. The future of this traditional Japanese restaurant seems bright enough.
