Much like China, the guest is fully immersed in the pavilion and removed from the theme park atmosphere.
The back of the pavilion features of Japanese castle while the front features Japanese gardens and koi ponds.
Across from the main pavilion, sitting in the World Showcase Lagoon, is a replica of the torii of Itsukushima Shrine.
