Hi I really need your help!
We are travelling from New Zealand to Toyko and then Osaka in late sept/early october and wish to vist USJ on weds 3rd Oct.
We will be staying at a hotel right next door and check into this hotel the day before weds 3rd October.
Purchasing express pass tickets seems to be an absolute failure so far. The Park Front Hotel, can only sell the studio pass tickets and we have to risk buying express pass tickets the day before or at USJ on the days itself, but they have told us we should purchase them prior, from the USJ website,as they always sell out.
This is IMPOSSIBLE from New Zealand. There are no authorised sellers from NZ and the closest is an Aust company, who sells holdays packages only.
I cannot buy these tickets from the USJ website itself in the english version, as the english version refers me to the authorised sellers - which arent in NZ.
My husband is currently in Japan for work and I thought he might be able to have a Japanese speaking person, help purchase the tickets for us on the USJ website Japanese langauage version, but hes been told, that since we do not have a Japanese symbol name, we cannot buy the tickets and indicated that this is done on purpose, so Japanese people have first preference for the express tickets over tourists.
Does anyone have any other ideas, which are authorised in order to buy these tickets in advance, which wont be null or void at the USJ gates? I have one child whos a desperately mad Harry Potter fan, who doesnt want to miss out.
HELP PLEASE, thanks
