Huge park!

USJ was by far the biggest theme park I've visited yet (but note that I have never been to North America yet). It is easy to get to, and the park itself is well-maintained and... read more

USJ was by far the biggest theme park I've visited yet (but note that I have never been to North America yet). It is easy to get to, and the park itself is well-maintained and clean. We spent most of our time at the Harry Potter area, which was indeed everything the website and brochures promise it to be. Being... More

The visit didn't meet my expectation. Firstly, the website online booking only available in Japanese language and everything inside the theme park is in Japanese language too with no English translation for the rides, 3D/4D attractions, etc... Not a foreign tourist friendly theme park. There are a few rides closed at the moment, although it's considered a peak period in... More

Universal studios Japan is a theme park. I think this is suitable for all range of age, you can see many famous film scene. You can take photos if you like. There are many different theme Pavilion, each theme Pavilion have their own style. Also there are many theme restaurant. But those restaurants cost is a little expensive. I suggest... More

It's best to purchase tickets beforehand to save time from queuing as there was a long queue for tickets and entrance even on a Tuesday... If you're a Potter fan, suggest to visit Wizarding World first thing as the waiting time will only get longer in the afternoon. The Harry Potter ride was totally awesome!!! We took it twice! If...

We visited here on a weekday in May, the week after golden week so we thought it may be a bit quieter. The park was still very busy and we had long queues for all of the big rides but still managed to get around and do everything. I don't buying the extra fastpass tickets but would probably recommend other... More

Favorite ride goes to Spider-Man! Very impressed with the effects of the show. Backdraft is another great experience of US. Also enjoyed the trio violin performance along the street. Kids got restless by 4pm and we had to leave back to Namba.

Exciting place...its Fun..don't forget to take your photo in front of the Globe and pink cafe. Make sure you are full before you visit,because the snacks inside are slightly expensive then what you buy outside. Road parade is must watch..something similar to what they do in Disney land but its more fun ..

Except for harry potter, the videos on the 3D rides and shows are a bit outdated. Also, don't bother to watch the shows if you don't understand japanese since the narration is purely japanese.
