New Signature Restaurant Coming to Epcot’s Japan Pavilion

Earlier this year we heard some rumors about a new signature restaurant in the works for Epcot’s Japan Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort.  Now it seems those rumors were true because Disney has officially announced an all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase, offering guests a signature dining experience inspired by the natural beauty of Japan.

According to Disney, 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. This new restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which operates the merchandise, restaurants (Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining), and kiosks in the Japan Pavilion. Once completed, the restaurant will add to the rich tapestry of authentic cultural experiences available to guests in World Showcase.

A name or estimated opening date has not been announced for the restaurant, so stay tuned for more details!
