Disney Parks Blog made an exciting announcement for all of the foodies out there!  It looks like there will be a new table service restaurant coming to the Japan pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase.   The new Walt Disney World restaurant will be a signature dining experience that is inspired by the natural beauty of Japan.  The new restaurant location will be operated by the same operators of Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining, Mitsukoshi USA.  Mitsukoshi USA is also the operator of the merchandise location and the various kiosks throughout the Japan pavilion.

Per Disney Parks Blog, “The setting will draw from both nature and takumi, which means “artisan” in Japanese, and the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world will be evident throughout the space.”

We are sure that this new restaurant will be a great addition to the cultural experiences that the World Showcase has to offer.  We can’t wait to learn more about it and what the restaurant will offer!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
