The restaurant is called Kayabuki in Miyukihoncho, Utsunomiya, in northern Tokyo. Kayabuki is also a traditional Japanese tavern where two monkeys named Yat-chan and Fuku-chan work as the main waiters.

Yat-chan is 16 years old – 2 years older than Fuku-chan. Yat-chan is extremely agile, moves quickly and timely responds to the requests of customers. Meanwhile, Fuku-chan’s task is to bring hot towels so that customers wipe their hands before ordering drinks.

The two monkeys Yat-chan and Fuku-chan are also confirmed by local authorities to work at the Kayabuki restaurant. Customers love them and often “reward” them for soy milk.

Yat-chan and Fuku-chan were initially pets in Mr. Kaoru Otsuka’s family. However, Yat-chan later began to imitate Kaoru Otsuka doing restaurant work. At this time, Otsuka realized that the two monkeys were capable of working in the restaurant. “At first, Yatchan studied by observing me when I was working at a restaurant. Everything began when one day I gave him a hot towel and observed curiously. Then, Yatchan brought towels to customers, “said Kaoru Otsuka.

Other people also said that Yat-chan can understand and remember exactly the requirements of the customer. “We ordered more beer bottles and Yat-chan immediately brought the beer bottles to us. We were surprised when he can understand people”, one customer said.

In Japan, animal protection laws only allow monkeys to work in restaurants for two hours in a day. However, Otsuka plans to train a generation of “monkey waiters” and now he has three ready monkeys.
