The Tokyo cafe owner and his staff have been given orders to leave the country by the central government, according to a news report.
The move was announced by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, which will not allow anyone to stay in Japan for the duration of the government shutdown.
The new regulation comes as the country struggles to deal with the fallout from a series of deadly earthquakes that have hit the country.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has called the disaster an “act of war” by the United States, which has also called for a halt to all foreign military activities.
The news agency NHK reported the orders came from the Ministry for the Promotion of Peace and Stability.
According to NHK, the new regulations require all establishments that sell food, drink and tobacco products to stop serving the products within two weeks.
The order is the latest move by the Japanese government to curb the popularity of Japanese cuisine.
In March, the government scrapped an initiative to create a national “diet” program, saying it was in the country’s best interest to allow for a more natural diet.
