WATCH: Time-Lapsed Video Of Iron Chef Japan’s Glorious New Kitchen Stadium Being Built

Hoo boy, the new Japanese version of Iron Chef recently hit airwaves, and the Wall Street Journal has already posted this preview clip of the new Kitchen Stadium being built! (We are a fan of the giant, golden, nude Greco-Roman statues.) They also include commentary from what appear to be distinguished Japanese celebrity judges (of which we understand absolutely nothing), as well as footage of inadequate Chairman Hiroshi Tamaki brooding moodily about his stadium. (Kaga would not approve.)

They also have the names of the new Iron Chefs: “Yosuke Suga (Iron Chef French) a former executive chef of Joel Robuchon’s empire in Japan, Yuji Wakiya (Iron Chef Chinese) a well-known chef and author and a former winner from the original series, and Jun Kurogi (Iron Chef Japanese) a talented chef whose Tokyo restaurant is booked out more than six months in advance.”
