Immersive Demon Slayer Restaurant Coming to Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan has announced a new themed restaurant, “Swordsmith Village Hyottoko Dining Hall” allowing visitors to immerse themselves into the world of “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” through a specially curated menu. The limited-time dining experience coincides with the opening of a VR roller coaster experience, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba XR Ride.

The unique dining experience will be available at “SAIDO” in the New York area for a limited time from Friday, July 19, 2024, to Sunday, January 5, 2025.

The restaurant will feature the highly realistic Karakuri doll “Yoriichi Zero Type”, making for a perfect photo opportunity. The figure has been created with meticulous attention to detail by the Universal Studios Japan development team to perfectly recreate the state of Yoriichi when he was rebooted to train with Tanjiro, including his arm that was destroyed during his intense training with Muichiro, the texture of the doll, and his kimono.

The Mist Shokado Meal inspired by the cool, translucent aura of Muichiro Tokito, master of Mist Breathing offers beef steak, roasted cutlassfish, assorted tempura, sashimi, assorted side dishes, plus savoury custard, miso soup, and rice.

The Vibrant Sushi Mea, inspired by the radiant and free-spirited Mitsuri Kanroji, the Love Hashira features assorted sushi (Sardine, Trout Salmon, Pickled Daikon, Yellowfin Tuna, Great Amberjack, Crabmeat, Ikura), assorted tempura, side dishes and miso soup.

Plant-based guests will be delighted with the Serene Plant-Based Meal inspired by this steadfast Stone Hashira. The set menu features multi-grain rice with beans, okra with enoki mushrooms and grated mountain yam, inaniwa-style udon, and side dishes including fried lotus root tofu and sashimi yuba.

Young guests won’t miss out, with a delicious kids’ meal presented in stacked boxes revealing dishes inspired by Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya. Dishes include hamburg steak with teriyaki sauce, creamy scallop croquette, inca-no-mezame potato, rolled omelette, eel and shrimp chirashi sushi.

The dessert menu includes a Deluxe Berries & Chocolate Parfait, inspired by Tengen Uzui, the flashy and vibrant Sound Hashira, and Swirling Black Sesame Mousse inspired by the Serpent Hashira.

A range of specialty drinks will also be available. Choices include Sudachi-Scented Cerulean Soda (left), Flower-Scented Grape Drink (middle) and Mint-Scented Stormy Ginger (right.)

Located at the Food cart in front of Space Fantasy – The Ride, guests can enjoy the Sword Training! Tanjiro and Kotetsu Chocolate Churritos inspired by Tanjiro, and the Nezuko’s Strawberry & Matcha Whipped Topping Donut inspired by the lovable Nezuko.

Other on-the-go items include the Inosuke’s Headlong Rush! Churritos — Chocolate & Chestnut and Zenitsu’s Thunderclap and Flash Roll Croissant — Chocolate, located at the food cart in front of Cinema 4-D Store.

Book Your Flight

I use Google Flights & Momodo to find affordable flights. Another great way is to sign up for Scott’s Cheap Flights to get notifications of cheap fares, which happens often in Japan. You’ll sometimes stumble on cheap flights to Kansai International Airport.

Buy Your Shinkansen Tickets (Bullet Train)

Getting around Japan by the world-renowned bullet train, known as the Shinkansen, is incredibly fast, reliable, and affordable for visitors. You can travel from Tokyo to Osaka in just over 2 hours. Get the JR Rail Pass to save a ton of money on the bullet train for your trip.

Book Your Hotel

Universal Studios Japan has affordable accommodations that are steps away from the park and have easy access to Osaka. I recommend checking prices through followed by the hotels directly. Sometimes you’re able to score some incredible deals. Here’s a short list of hotels at Universal Studios Japan I recommend.

  • The Park Front Hotel at Universal Studios Japan – You’re directly in front of the Park gates and have instant access to Universal CityWalk Osaka. The rooms are gorgeous, with restaurants and even a Lawson (Japanese convenience store).
  • The Singulari HOTEL & SKYSPA – Attached to the train station is a fantastic hotel for those who want a comfortable, clean, and stylish place to sleep. After a long day at Universal Studios Japan, the rooftop sento (public bath) is excellent for unwinding and relaxing.
  • Hotel Universal Port – This is an excellent hotel for the Minion fan in your family, only a 5-minute walk from Universal Studios Japan. It also boasts the largest breakfast buffet in Japan, a must during your visit.

Buy Your Tickets & Express Pass

In advance, save time and stress by buying your tickets and Express Pass for Universal Studios Japan.

Stay Connected

Universal Studios Japan only offers free Wi-Fi at the entrance to the Park. That’s not enough to stay connected and share your day with everyone back home to give them FOMO on Instagram. Here’s how you can stay connected while travelling in Japan.

  • Pocket Wi-Fi – If you’re travelling with a group or have multiple devices, this is your best and most affordable way to stay connected to the internet. Pick up and drop off at the airport. Easy.
  • Japan SIM Card – If you have an unlocked phone and need a Japanese phone number, this is the best and easiest way.

Get Yourself Travel Insurance

While travelling aboard, having travel insurance protects you against injury, cancellations, illness, and other things you can never predict. Whenever I travel, I always budget for travel insurance to protect myself. I’ve used it, and I’m so glad I had it. My recommended companies are SafteyWing and  World Nomads for travel insurance.
