L.A.’s biggest artisan pizza brand is going international. After a successful roll out nationwide, 800 Degrees is making its way to Japan with a series of expansions.

The big news came about following a partnership between the 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzerias brand and Japan’s own Lumine Co., which will oversee the franchising operations abroad. The idea is to drop the quick service pizza chain into high-volume areas across the island nation, including Shinjuku Station, the massive transport hub that gets something like three and a half million visitors a day.

Don’t worry about being left behind though, Midwest: there’s still an Evanston, Illinois location on tap for 2015 too.
