Disney has announced that the new restaurant being built at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot will be opening this summer, and will be named Takumi-Tei, which means house of the artisan.

This new signature dining experience is inspired by the natural beauty of Japan, and will serve upscale dinners including wagyu beef in a natural setting. See more details below, as well as photos for this restaurant’s future location, and stay tuned for more theme park news coming soon.

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.
