    Ikspiari

Ikspiari is Tokyo Disney Resort's dining, shopping, and entertainment complex. It is home to over 140 shops and restaurants. Ikspiari is located near JR Maihama railway station, and what Tokyo Disney calls the "Resort Gateway." Tokyo Disney Resort Line - Resort Gateway Station is connected to Ikspiari. Here you can ride the monorail to Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea, or Bayside Station (home of the on-site non-Disney hotels).

Ikspiari is a giant and confusing labyrinth; even after many visits we still find it difficult to navigate and find what we are looking for. Luckily, guide maps are available in English and many other languages. We won't go over every restaurant and shop; but to get you started, we'll point out some of our favorites. Ippudo, a famous ramen chain, has a location in Ikspirari on the third floor. It's a must try. No hyperbole here, it's the best ramen we've ever had. On the fourth floor, Tsukiji Tamasushi is where you'll find delicious and freshly prepared Sushi. Also on the fourth floor is Tonkatsu Wako, home of tasty fried pork cutlets. On the third floor, Sato Inoko is home to excellently cooked meats and a large selection of adult beverages. A food court full of cheaper quick service restaurants is located on the first floor. We enjoy Rockies and think is has the best description on the official Ikspiari website: "Meat roasted on a hot iron plate." Also in the food court is Pie Face, which sells sweet or savory mini pies that have cute faces. For those picky eaters who are not adventurous and want the same food they can find back in USA, T.G.I. Friday's (on the fourth floor), Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, and Rainforest Cafe (all three of which are on the second floor) are also available.

If you’re not hungry, there’s always shopping and a 16-theater Cinema Ikspiari with IMAX 3-D to keep you occupied. The main draw for most people will probably be the large Disney Store on the second floor. Familiar brands, such as Gap, Lush, Diesel, Tommy Hilfiger, and others can be found around the complex. It's fun to explore and look in the stores you've never heard of as well, including those with amusing names, such as Go! Go! Laundry and Girls Mignon. Medi+Plus, a pharmacy stocked with many over the counter cold, allergy and other medicines, is also located on the first floor. A grocery store, Seijo Ishii, is available on the first floor. Here you can grab drinks, and snacks for slightly lower prices than you would find inside the parks. Also- near the grocery store are storage lockers, and a 7-11 ATM where you can use your American debit or credit cards to withdraw Japanese Yen.
