When my fiancé and visited Japan we went to both Universal Studios and Disneyland in Japan. However we found Universal Studios more relatable for adults. Definitely a must try!

Was the busiest theme park I ever went to and we went on a rainy Wednesday morning. 2-3hr queues for rides. Spend £120+ per person on express tickets or don't bother going. Nightmare!

I could go on about how much I enjoyed my visit but would end up writing an essay. If you're in Osaka, go to Universal Studios. You won't regret it. The Wizarding World is especially impressive.

Best wait times at most parks are at opening and closing. We got there early at 8am and waited for the gates to open to try to get reasonable wait times and got most of the important rides done before it peaks at around 10:30,...More

If you go to the USJ website you can click english and get all your info there. Also the hotels around the area also sell tickets with a much shorter line if you are a guest there.
