Universal Studios Japan is extremely well done. Our family members ages ranged from 64 to 3 years old, and everyone had a good time. The Harry Potter ride was pretty much exactly the same as the one in Orlando, except this one was entirely in...More

It's a happy place for anyone and everyone!! Must visit if you come to Osaka! And if you're a fan of Harry Potter, it's a no brainer than you must visit the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. Try the butter beer (cold). I also loved...More

I loved Universal studios but you waste a lot of your time in lines. Get there early and be prepared to stay till closing to make the most of your day. My advice is to do your research on your favourite part of the park...More

USJ has a different offering of characters and attractions than Universal Studio Parks in other countries. Harry Potter, Hello Kitty, Muppets, Spiderman, Minions, Jurassic Park, and more! When the park first opened maybe 15 years or so ago, it seemed that it was closely based...More

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter really makes this place that much better. Without it, I would have been unimpressed. 3D rides are everywhere, which is disappointing for those of us who don't like them. Skip backdraft, it is a massive waste of time. Hollywood...More
