If you’re one of those people who still dread eating out, here’s a fun-looking alternative: a dining experience where you can eat under a see-through lantern.
This experience is being offered at the Hoshinoya Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
What’s interesting is that the lanterns are made by Kojima Shouten, which has been handcrafting lanterns since the Edo period (1603 – 1868). They measure 40.2 inches in height and 29.5 inches in diameter, while the vinyl covering is 0.15mm thick.
Each lantern also has a light that illuminates your face and your food, so you can enjoy both the meal and conversation with your companions.
The meal is called Nippon Cuisine Fermentation, a multi-course affair that includes “fermented foods such as seasonings, soy sauce, and miso, which have been popular in Japan since ancient times, [as well as] preserved foods such as pickles and salted fish.”
According to reports, a meal here costs ¥30,000 (roughly P13,372.85) per group or ¥21,780 (roughly P9708.69) per person.
