Walt Disney World's Epcot is well known for its "countries," but as guests are strolling along the World Showcase Lagoon, they tend to overlook some of the secrets of these pavilions. Don't forget to explore every last nook and cranny of the World Showcase!
In the Japan pavilion, for example, hidden behind the frontispiece of soaring pagoda and serenely terraced restaurant, there are sparkling koi ponds, wooden bridges, and serene gardens. And within the forbidding White Heron Castle, you'll find displays on modern and historic Japanese art -- currently, it features a look at how mythical creatures found their way into modern anime.
Take a look at the Japan pavilion's unique entertainment, shopping, and dining. It will make your list of must-do's on your next visit to Walt Disney World!
