The World Showcase at Epcot is filled with amazing dining experiences in each of the represented countries. The Japan pavilion is getting a new restaurant to go along with already popular Tokyo Dining, Teppan Edoand Katsura Grill. Disney announced today that the newest Signature Dining experience, Takumi-Tei Restaurant, will officially open its doors Summer 2019. The restaurant will be inspired by the architecture and natural beauty of Japan.

"The restaurant will be named Takumi-Tei, which means house of the artisan. The design celebrates the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world, while the food is inspired by the wonderful collaboration between nature and takumi, the artisan. The upscale dinner menu will highlight wagyu beef in a sublime setting, and guests interested in the ultimate experience will be able to indulge in a multi-course tasting menu featuring traditional tea service. Signature cocktails and premium sake will be available along with a wine and craft beer menu.

Takumi-Tei will open in the Japan pavilion at Epcot this summer and will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which operates the merchandise, restaurants (Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining), and kiosks in the Japan pavilion. The new restaurant will add to the rich tapestry of cultural experiences available to guests in World Showcase. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more information and details to be revealed!"

Yeah I cannot picture where this is going. I must have missed it when we were there recently. Is it behind the entire pavilion? I have read somewhere that they will be multi courses, specialty tea tastings and simply everything very high end. My guess is they will have some of the best wagyu beef anywhere on property.

Can’t wait to see the menu. Where exactly is this located in the pavilion?
@Wonderfulworld check out the map below. You can see it is directly to the right of the building that houses Teppan Edo, Tokyo Dining and Mitsukoshi USA Department Store. If you are looking directly at the pavilion from the walkway around World Showcase it is on the far right.

Ahh yes. Looks like there actually is a lot of land right there.
