World Traveler: Japan Part 1
This is the first in a series that will dive into the depths of the world showcase pavilions at Epcot. Today we look at the exterior of the Japan pavilion. upon entering the pavilion we see a traditional torii gate along the waters edge, A Japanese Pagoda, and several authentic buildings surrounding a courtyard. At the rear of the courtyard are large gates and a moat that lead to a Japanese castle. The pavilion is home to several dinning and entertainment options which we well look at in future posts. Including the Mitsukoshi department store, A chain of stores founded in 1673 in Japan.
