PHOTOS: Trees Cleared for Japan’s New Table Service Restaurant at Epcot

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Back in January we told you that Japan was building a signature steak and seafood restaurant to the side of their pavilion at Epcot. Disney confirmed the information in May, and now we have construction progressing at the pavilion. There’s plenty of walls up around the future entrance to the restaurant and now trees have been cleared.

The facade back to the right has always been shrouded in trees, until now.

From this angle, were can see that a single line of trees was left standing behind the walls.

Finally. The 6th food attraction we’ve all wanted at Japan. Who needs a ride.

Really looking forward to this place opening. Hoping for some quality A5 wagyu!

Do we know if it will be a rectangular box or an architecturally-fitting structure?

Not criticizing the decision, but out of curiosity, was there a high demand for another restaurant in Japan?

Some childish types get angry over restaurant construction. But Epcot’s all about eating & drinking for me.
With 2 pretty cool rides already on the way, bring on more places to gorge!
