This was a must do for my Harry Potter loving daughter. It was larger than the one in California. Did not disappoint in any way. A bit of California Adventure Park mixed in. Way less expensive than the one in CA! Fun day for sure!

This place is a must-visit when you go to Osaka! The World of Harry Potter is amazing!! The rides are varied, thrilling, exciting, unique, everything good. The lines can be quite long but definitely worth it!
