The Kaki Gori Cart at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot

Oh boy, this week’s image in need of ID has been a welcomed sight during more than a few visits. Look familiar? You can spot it somewhere at the Walt Disney World Resort – but where? Please put your answers in the comments and we’ll update the post with the answer later today.

The Kaki Gori Cart at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot

You got it – it’s the Kaki Gori cart at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot. We did some digging and found that Kaki Gori has a long history in Japan – first recorded in a book written more than 1,000 years ago. Then, it was known as “Kezurihi” and was a summer treat for the Royal Court during the Heian Period (794-1185 AD).

Modern Kaki Gori first appeared in Yokohama around 1869 as ice flavored with sweet syrups. It can also be flavored with fruits and sweet bean paste. At Epcot, we serve Kaki Gori flavored with strawberry, melon or tangerine – or all three. Let us know your favorite.
