Monkey Waiters in Japan

A Japanese tavern has turned to two monkeys for help with its table service. The Kayabukiya sake house, in the city of Utsunomiya north of Tokyo, is using a pair of uniformed Japanese macaques called Yat-chan and Fuku-chan to serve its customers.Kaoru Otsuka, who owns the restaurant in Utsunomiya, Japan, said he did not teach the sake-serving monkey its waiting skills. Mr Otsuka claims Yatchan watched him serving customers and remembered how to do it.
