Tokyo’s new book café, Decameron, only allows customers to communicate through writing as speaking is not permitted.
Notebooks are placed on the counter for customers to use when making an order.
The bar, that gets its name from a collection of novellas written by Giovanni Boccaccio in the 14th century, opened on July 22.
It is located in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho, an area popular for its entertainment and red-light district.
People visiting the bar should expect to pay an entry fee of 500 yen ($4.72) and an additional 1,000 yen (US$9.45) for drinks.
Customers can choose from a selection of drinks listed on the blackboard.
