The owner of a Japanese restaurant was considering closing the establishments due to a lack of customers. One of the last days, for a joke, he tried to release a long-tamed monkey as a waiter. To the surprise of the owner, the macaque perfectly understood his duties and now people sign up for a restaurant a few months in advance to look at an unusual waiter. The Kayabukiya Tavern is built like a traditional Japanese sake house. There are many similar establishments even in small towns, this explains the unpopularity of the establishment.
Everything changed with the advent of the macaque Yat-chan. Yat-chan is 16 years old and the owner of the establishment, Kaoru Otsuka, received it as a gift from a friend. He often took the monkey with him to work, and apparently an intelligent animal learned the tricks of work from the restaurant waiters. At first I gave her simple tasks.
Take napkins, menus. But now Yat-chan serves drinks and takes orders that visitors write down on special sheets, Kaoru Otsuka told reporters. See how the monkey works: This marketing ploy helped the restaurant not only “stay afloat”, but also become famous. People from all over the country go to the institution to look at unusual waiters.
