Universal Studios Japan (USJ) , located in the Osaka Bay Area, is a theme park featuring a variety of movie-related rides and shows. Opened in March 2001, USJ attracted ten million visitors faster than any other theme park in the world.

The theme park offers exciting rides about Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Spider Man and other blockbuster Hollywood movies. The attractions also include characters from Sesame Street, Snoopy (Peanuts) and Peter Pan, and you will definitely meet the friendly Woodpecker couple and Pink Panther wandering around as main costumed characters. This spot is popular with both adults and children.

Long wait times everywhere! Going early does not help. Be prepared to wait 1 to 2 hours for any type of ride or attraction. Going late would mean some shows are no longer playing. The food at the three broomsticks (Harry Potter ward) was good but it is a little bit pricey, but that is nothing compared to the price of the tickets that you paid.

The actual rides themselves were all right. If you've been to the universal studios in the states then they're pretty much the same, the only difference is that there are exclusive 4d shows at this universal studios. Unfortunately, all the shows and exhibits are in Japanese and nothing is translated.

Be ready to smell all kinds of funk. If you are going around the summer time, do yourself a favor and bring UMBRELLAS to hide from the sun. There are also lockers before each ride so that you can put your stuff in there. Taking pictures or videos inside each 4d show is not allowed.

Overall, not a bad way to spend you day and increase your patience levels.

Wonderful park with great details and attractions. Amazing customer service and very interesting shows. Often crowded because of how good the place is. Offers service to English speaking tourists as well. Never a boring moment here. Much better than Hollywood.

First time going to Universal Studios and it was a blast for me. I liked it more than Tokyo Disneyland as it had a good mix of thrilling rides and themed attractions. Definitely recommend the flying dinosaur and Harry Potter castle rides. Lines can get over 90 minutes long but if you go as singles it could be significantly faster. One tip I have regarding the Harry Potter ride is to go at 7pm as a lot of people would be watching the show outside. I was able to do the ride back to back while some people waited over 3 hours during the day. Definitely a fun one day visit!

Great experience! If you’re not getting the express pass, recommend to reach an hour early as they will most likely open up early. Pick the theme park you most desire to visit and head straight for it.

Make sure you stay for the 8pm night parade and find a nice spot before 7pm to sit (only first rows are allowed to be seated).

This place is great. I really enjoyed visiting here. Rides are great, very clean park, family friendly. Food here is relatively average so bring some if you have the chance (or just outside the park there are many restaurants to choose from). However be prepared to wait, most rides have a wait time of anywhere between 30 minutes to over 2 hours (of course ride dependent). Harry Potter is probably the best ride in the park and it’s worth the wait. Recommended.

Japan Osaka Universal City, Changchun, China are known as the Hollywood of the East Changying century city. Felt Changying century city are spectacular, but went after Osaka, feel Changying century city is too small.
The most important thing is Japan's tourist service is really very good, regardless of which attractions go, meticulous service always makes you feel warm.

日本大阪有环球影城,中国长春有东方好莱坞之称的长影世纪城。当时觉得长影世纪城非常壮观,但去过大阪之后,才感觉到长影世纪城太小了。
最主要的还是日本的观光地的服务真的很好,无论去哪个景点,细致的服务总是让你感觉到暖暖的。
