The new table-service restaurant coming to Japan that we first told you about in January has now been confirmed by Disney in an internal memo to Cast Members. According to the information, the restaurant will be “offering Guests a signature dining experience inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. The restaurant’s 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 restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which is the same company that operates Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining, as well as the merchandise locations in the Japan pavilion.
“When completed, this new restaurant will add to the rich tapestry of authentic cultural experiences available to guests in World Showcase,” the document explains.
No further information about the opening date of the restaurant is available at this time, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more!
