Universal Studios Japan Reveals New Demon Slayer-Themed Restaurant’s Menu and Details

Universal Studios Japan previously announced two new Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-themed attractions — the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba XR Ride – Blacksmith’s Ride VR coaster and the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: HASHIRA Practice x Hollywood Dream the Ride “story coaster” — which will launch on July 19 and remain until January 5, 2025 JST. More recently, it provided details for the Swordsmith Village Hyottoko Dining Hall, a Demon Slayer-themed restaurant that will also be open throughout that period.

Customers of the Swordsmith Village Hyottoko Dining Hall can expect to lay eyes on stained glass and other Taisho era-styled retro design elements, as well as Hyottokko ornaments on the walls and a model of the Yoriichi Type Zero doll that Tanjiro trains with. Mid-meal conversations between Tanjiro and co. will be played in the restaurant.

The menu is primarily Hashira-themed, and of these, the character inspiration for the Kasumi no Shokado Gozen/Mist Shokado Meal — which comes with beef steak, roasted cutlassfish, sashimi, assorted tempura, and more — is the easiest to discern thanks to the name. The Sushi Gozen/Vibrant Sushi Meal is based on the “radiant and free-spirited” Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, while the Vegetable Gozen/Serene Plant-Based Meal has Stone Hashira Gyomei Himejima as the inspiration. 

Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui and Serpent Hashira Obanai Iguro are the respective models for the Deluxe Berries & Chocolate Parfait and Swirling Black Sesame Mousse desserts. Meanwhile, Water Hashira Giyu Tomioka, Insect Hashira Shinobu Kocho, and Wind Hashira Sanemi Shinazugawa are the inspirations for the drinks (Sudachi-Scented Cerulean Soda, Flower-Scented Grape Drink, and Mint-Scented Stormy Ginger, respectively). Buying a drink will give you one random special coaster. There are nine designs in total, each decorated with a Hashira and shaped to the corresponding sword guard. 

Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya are represented by the Kids Meal, which separates its dishes into three boxes. 

Aside from the Swordsmith Village Hyottoko Dining Hall’s offerings, USJ will update its on-the-go food menu with the Swordsmanship Training: Tanjiro and Kotetsu’s Chocolate Churritos and the Priestess’ Strawberry & Matcha Hoop Donut. Visitors can also get their hands on Inosuke and Zenitsu sweet treats and Demon Slayer mascot keychains.

The Swordsmith Village was the main setting of 2023’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc. The current season of the anime adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge‘s manga is Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc, which premiered on May 12.
