This is different. No idea what it is. I think that should be where the plane kiosk is.

Edit: Actually more recent Tokyo pics has (partially) their construction offices sitting there, but this building is more permanent.

Is the version at Epic Universe going to have the entrance at "Ground" level? or do you think they will make you go up some sort of ramp and then into the green tunnel and enter at the top of the castle like they do in the original Super Nintendo Land?
