The One Reason to Visit the Japan Booth at EPCOT’s Food & Wine Festival!
It’s time! It’s time! The 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival has officially begun!
We’re in the park today to share everything at the festival, from the food to the merchandise to the scavenger hunt. So, let’s go check out what the Japan booth has to offer!
Almost the entire menu over at the Japan booth is brand new! There is only one returning item, and we’re excited to check everything out.
Here’s a look at our food before we get to tasting!
Taking a look at the eats from the JAPAN booth next!🏯🇯🇵✨

We’ll start with the new — you can get the Fire Taiko Roll here for $8. This is a sushi roll with spicy tuna, cucumber, and pickled daikon radish served with spicy sauce.
This was absolutely delicious! It’s the perfect mix of spicy from the tuna and refreshing from the cucumber.
The roll is very balanced and a great size for you to snack on while still saving room for more food at the festival.
Next up is the new Beef Wa-Gyu Don for $9.75. This is a traditional Japanese rice bowl with American wagyu beef over steamed white rice.
This was good, but it wasn’t anything to write home about. It’s a solid option but definitely not a stand-out!
You can also get the returning Teriyaki Chicken Bun for $7.50. This is a steamed bun filled with chicken, vegetables, and teriyaki sauce.
The drinks are all new here as well! We decided to grab the new Moon on the Water Sake for $15.
It’s cold sake with passion fruit juice. This was very tasty and we would definitely get it again!
You can also ge the new Sake Passion Cocktail for $8.75 or the new Brew Hub Momo Amber Ale. You can get a 6 oz. pour for $5.50 and a 12 oz. pour for $10.
Overall, we think this booth is worth visiting for the sushi roll alone!
Stay tuned for more news and updates from the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival!
