Universal Studios Japan has announced they will update their current collaboration* with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba starting November 18th. They will add new elements to both a ride and menu items featuring popular characters from the series!

* The collaboration itself will last until February 13th, 2022.

New menu items

Special food featuring Kyōjurō Rengoku 煉獄杏寿郎

Rengoku is one of the most important characters in the smash hit movie 『劇場版「鬼滅の刃」 無限列車編』 gekijō-ban kimetsu no yaiba mugen ressha-hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Movie: Mugen Train). He is also making an appearance in the current season of the TV series.

At Studio Stars Restaurant スタジオ・スターズ・レストラン, they will offer this hamburg steak set.

Look at the pattern on the cheese!

The dish uses pie crust and grissini to invoke the image of a sword.

Yes, the motif for this dish is Kyōjurō Rengoku, the Flame Pillar* and it's called 煉獄杏寿郎のハンバーグプレートセット rengoku kyōjurō no hanbāgu purēto setto (Kyōjurō Rengoku's Hamburg steak plate).

*Pillars are the most powerful and skilled warriors in the Demon Slayer Corps.

The potage is made from white miso and sweet potato. According to the official fan book,「鬼滅の刃公式ファンブック 鬼殺隊見聞録」kimetsu no yaiba kōshiki fan bukku kisatsutai kenbunroku (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba official fan book: records of the Demon Slayer Corps), Rengoku’s favorite food is sweet potato miso soup.

USJ really paid a lot of attention to detail when designing these dishes to reflect these fan-favorite characters.

Photogenic food featuring Kochō Shinobu and Mitsuri Kanroji

At another restaurant, 藤の花の食事処 fuji no hana no shokujidokoro (wisteria flower restaurant), they will serve food and dessert fit for your Instagram and other social media featuring the two female pillars: Kochō Shinobu 胡蝶しのぶ, the Insect Pillar, and Mitsuri Kanroji 甘露寺蜜璃, the Love Pillar.

This beautiful dish, 華々ビフカツ膳 hanabana bifukatsu zen (flowery beef cutlet set), expresses Shinobu Kochō’s elegant atmosphere. This is a well-balanced set with beef cutlet and other Japanese-style vegetable and seafood side dishes.

After eating the meal, don’t forget to order this cute and colorful parfait, 苺あんみつパフェ ichigo anmitsu pafe (strawberry anmitsu parfait), featuring Mitsuri Kanroji.

The heart-shaped macaron is very lovely! It’s almost a waste to eat it. This dessert expresses Mitsuri’s cuteness perfectly!

Sandwich to acquire “Total Concentration: Constant”?!

Of course, there is new food featuring protagonist Tanjirō Kamado 竈戸炭次郎 as well. The collaboration doesn’t only involve the Pillar characters.

This uniquely shaped sandwich will be offered at a food cart. This sandwich is shaped like a bottle gourd (calabash), and Tanjirō used this when he was training to acquire and master a special type of breathing known as “Total Concentration: Constant” (in Japanese, 全集中・常中 zenshūchū: jōchū). Using the difficult technique, Tanjirō had to break the hard gourds with only his breath.

The ingredients of this unique sandwich are karaage 唐揚げ Japanese-style fried chicken, and kinpira きんぴら, a common Japanese side dish made from simmered burdock root and carrot.

In other words, it will let you try traditional Japanese food and the world of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba together!

Since Universal Studios Japan is very large, check this map to find the restaurants and the food cart mentioned above.


A new story for the rollercoaster, “Hollywood Dream - The Ride”

In addition to the food menu, one of the most popular attractions, “Hollywood Dream - The Ride” will show you a new original story from the same day, November 18th.

The previous story focused on Rengoku, but this time, Tanjirō, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke are the main characters of the story!
