World Showcase - Japan
A traditional torii gate welcomes visitors to the Japan pavilion, while the five-story pavilion provides the iconic landmark to this area. Walk past two stone sentries and you are inside the Bijutsu-kan gallery, where a rotating art show provides glimpses into the world of Japanese art.
Although there are no ride attractions in this pavilion, Matsuriza provides the thundering sounds of Japanese taiko drums, and candy maker Miyuki creates amazing confectionary animal wonders before your very eyes.
In place of an attraction is the Mitsukoshi store. A branch of one of the titanically huge department store chains in Japan, this store offers a selection of exotic and unusual souvenirs, as well as packaged snacks and candies. Although these foods often evoke quizzical faces in Western visitors, Japanese tourists delight in their discovery of familiar snacks from home
