Visit Japan at Epcot & Shop at Mitsukoshi

Jason-kun suggests we visit the Japan Pavillion and Mitsukoshi store at Epcot this Memorial Day weekend.  Anyone up for a road trip?

Matsuriza (taiko drum group) plays several times throughout the day in the World Showcase.

Also there's a display in the Bijutsu-kan Gallery entitled "Spirited Beasts" that explains the folklore behind various Anime monsters (obakemono).

Then there's the 10,000 sq ft of retail space at Epcot's Mitsukoshi gift shop.  Maybe you can find that tamagoyaki pan you've been searching for...  ;o)

And finally, there are a couple of Japanese dining options in the park--a teppanyaki (Teppan Edo) and a contemporary/sushi restaurant (Tokyo Dining).

If we stay 'til after dark, it looks like the pagoda-style structure is illuminated really beautifully!  行きましょう。

    Jason was a little disappointed that he didn't get this instruction sheet with his calligraphy purchase...so here's a scan for all TJM members. http://files.meetup.com/1182775/Calligraphy.pdf

    Hi Esther! Long time no see. Is there a RSVP limit or is anyone invited? I've been recovering from a car accident so I haven't been able to attend any events.

      If you go, you can call my cell to meet with Jason and me. [masked] We'll be leaving from my area around 10 a.m. and arriving at EPCOT about an hour later. Sorry its too late to carpool with you. :o(

      Or...you can call me tonight (yes, I know it's 1:30 a.m.) and I'll give you directions.

    Free EPCOT ticket? Savi Dixon is going to be receiving a free Disney ticket by being a member of the audience for a filming of a Brazillian Idol show. The filming takes place during the afternoon at Hollywood Studios in Disney World, and it's indoors... Really all you need to do to get the free ticket is stand around for about 3 hours. Savi's cousin hooked her up with this, as she's been doing it for a while, and Savi has done it once before (she was an audience member for the season finale of AFV and got a free park hopper) in April. They actually hand you your ticket as you leave the shoot, and you usually get snacks, too! Please contact Savi for more information.

    Did this take place on Memorial Day, or is it still an upcoming event?

      Still upcoming! My Mother was sick over the Memorial Day holiday, so we had to reschedule.

    No I don't mind driving to your area. That's a great idea Esther. I'll chip in for gas.

    Of course, if anyone wants the flexibility of their own vehicle, we can swap cell numbers and do as Cody suggests.

    Adam, you live in Bartow? Is there some place on an I-4 exit we can pick you up? I can swing by Cleveland Heights to get Cody. Jason, would you mind driving to my area? You could come out the crosstown...then 60 the rest of the way...?

    May 20, 2013

  • Esther (.

    Oh? I thought we'd carpool over.

    May 20, 2013

    • Cody B.

      The giant Epcot ball seems like a good place.

      May 20, 2013

  • Cody B.

    How much does it cost to get in?

    April 18, 2013

    • Esther (.
