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.

Visiting here was a very unique experience. The way the park is built in a meticulous manner and pulls you into its magic very well. Overall the visit has been great, but I'll start by describing where I feel the park falls short (albeit very obvious that this is how it is).

The density of visitors and immense queue times can definitely put a damper on one's immersion and can end up being very frustrating. Our visit has been during an 'off-season' and mid week, but the amount of visitors from all over the world was almost overwhelming. The park mostly handles the crowds very well nonetheless when it comes to the queues, organization and so on.

The rides are mostly really fun and well made, whether they are the more modern ones or the classic ones. The food courts and gift shops are as expensive as you'd expect but they offer a good experience and pleasant memories in return.

The part where the park truly shines in my opinion; the staff and the productions! The staff is friendly, patient and energetic despite the ceaseless crowds of visitors they must attend to. They do everything with a smile, greet visitors wherever they go and compliment them. The parades, dancers, characters and performers that roam the park or perform in the events are incredible at their job and very resilient.

If anything is worth the time and money spent on the visit, and if anything embedded good memories and a lovely experience from this park, it's definitely all of those hard working staff members. They are the wind beneath the park's wings and they make it worth the while.

Had a great time at Universal Studios! There’s fun for everyone thrill seekers and people who don’t like rides. The shows and parades were fun! Halloween time is fun because there’s scary zombies in the evening. The Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey was the best ride in my opinion! Universal Studios train their staff really well; the staff are really friendly, helpful, nice and always have smiles on their faces.

Must try the Harry Porter Magical Adventure flying above Hogwarts ground! It is really fun and exciting that you can feel you are totally in the film, the 5D effect! Other than that, the rest should be more or less like other universal studio. Additional that today I went , Halloween are around the corner and we can see a lot Japanese teenagers wear Halloween costumes which enhance the atmosphere l!

It was my second time (1st was in 2012) but I could enjoy Halloween night. It was amazing. I enjoy a lot.
I loved Harry port based attractions, specially because I used single entrance and didn't need to wait too much. Of course I do not recommend it if you intend to visit with your friends/family/partner.
Even being almost 40-years old I visit minions place and I loved.
Only Waterworks was not available (2nd time, same thing at 2012. incredible!!)

I didn't have an express pass thinking nothing of it as most amusement parks I've went to, I could still get on rides. This one, I couldn't. Not at all. The wait times were between 3-6 hours, and that's not an exaggeration. I went to Lotte World in Seoul, South Korea, and the longest we had to wait on a ride was an hour. Unless you have an express pass and can cut through lines, you'll be doing more waiting than riding on anything. If that's how people like spending their time, it's a great and weird way to have patience. But I left after spending 3 hours there. The only positive about the park was the parade.

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。
