Hoshino, a ryokan group in Otomachi, Tokyo, has developed a lantern cover that combines Japanese culture and anti-epidemic concepts. Even if you eat at a table of people, you can eat comfortably. Everyone is covered in a lantern made by the lantern shop that has long been established by Kyoto “Kojima Store” set up in the Edo period. There is a 0.15mm transparent PVC film on the front and no film on the back. There is a bulb on the head to illuminate the face and food. With a diameter of 75 mm and a height of 102 mm, it can almost cover the shoulder to the neck. Not only is it ventilated but it also allows you to speak with confidence while eating.
This “lantern banquet” is held in a special box, one group a day, the food fee is 21,780 yen per person, and the place fee is 30,000 yen. Reservations are required 5 days in advance. See more here.
