One diner in Japan’s capital is putting model customers to enforce social distancing.

According to the Jakarta Post report, the Masato Takemine’s Chinese restaurant in Tokyo now has life-like mannequins from keeping diners from getting too close.

While the other restaurants deal with a dearth of clientele, the diner is busy with his customers wearing Chinese-style dresses and kimonos.

But the 16 customers are actually mannequins he has placed randomly at tables to keep diners from getting close to each other.

The restaurant said they initially removed to tables to have more space in between. But the staff said the diner looked so lonely, as if it is under renovation.

“With these mannequins, the restaurant looks busy from the outside, and I can make sure customers are distancing himself,” said the owner.

Currently, restaurants are gradually closing even after the state of emergency was lifted last May. Many customers still observe social distancing and prefer to eat at home.

Takemine’s restaurant in downtown Tokyo also reopened in late May. But it sees about half the number of customers it did before the virus.

The mannequins keep the restaurant from feeling too empty. However the owner said he is still looking forward to having customers happily dining in with their loved ones.
