9. Cannabalistic Sushi in Tokyo, Japan
The idea of this restaurant in Tokyo, Japan came from Nyotaimori, an extremely rare practice of serving sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically naked. What’s interesting about this restaurant, is that patrons do not eat what’s on the body, but rather, the body itself!
Patrons are presented with a “human body” made from dough on what may seem to be an operating table and is rolled out into the dining room. Red sauce is added for life-like bleeding and the internal organs are lovingly and accurately reproduced with sushi and sashimi. You can choose between male or female bodies.
