    The next stop on our walking tour takes us to Japan in World Showcase. This pavilion is very pretty and I enjoy walking round the shops and people watching.

    I only recently realised that there was an exhibition at the rear of the shop. What do you like to do here, do you have a favourite drink or does the sushi take your fancy.

    Share your photos and experiences :)

    Love Japan! We always spend time in the shops. We always buy a snack item to try. I have not had enough nerve to try the dried shrimp crackers.

    We like Japan. Teppan Edo was awesome and we always spend ages in the shop. We bought a bag of those littlr dried crabs to try - they taste of the sea. They had a Manga exhibition last year - the boys liked that one.

    We love Japan. The gardens are some of the most beautiful to wander around, from the splendour of the pagoda to the koi in the pond. It's a very relaxing place to sit and unwind.
    It is also home to my favourite entertainment, the Drummers.
    There is a nice gallery that has art, exhibits (inside and out) and changing exhibitions. There's aalways something interesting to look at.
    The department store is very colourful and full of treasures. :)

    Love the drummers. We rarely spend a lot of time here but I do enjoy the shop. I think we've done Teppan Edo one time. It was a fun experience but we can do better, cheaper at our local Japanese Steak House, Sakura.

    Well, I've now eaten 3 bags of those yummy melon candies, and had a little too much sake...so it's probably best ;-)

    I did buy another pair of those toe socks though! This silly New England weather won't keep ME from my flip flops!

    So miss the lounge. :( We used to love to go upstairs, get an order of tempura and a cold drink and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Matsunoma Lounge. :sigh:

    I still like Japan quite a bit though. I like the museum at the back and the fact that it changes. We LOVE looking through the food items, although the variety has changed. The little dried crabs are wicked fun and actually pretty tasty. :yes: The dishes are nice too, and they used to have this piece of furniture (a case piece) that we LOVED. Couldn't afford it by any means, but it was really neat.

    Like the drums!
