After the end of the Japanese lockdown, the Izu Shaboten Zoo in Itō had to make sure all safety measures were respected, from giving out masks and installing hand sanitizer dispensers to ensuring social distancing was respected everywhere, including the zoo’s restaurants.
In its “GIBBONTEI Forest Animal” restaurant, the Zoo made sure that guests would sit the appropriate distance from one another by deploying an army of stuffed animals to occupy seats that weren’t meant to be used. That way everyone, especially children, can enjoy a meal in safety and cute company.
