The Disney Parks Blog confirmed that a new signature restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion at Epcot. The restaurant will be inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. Per the 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. 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.
