Very cold day in Osaka but still lots of people visiting. Some of the rides were closed but we still had a great time at the Harry Potter theme area. Most of the stores carry the same things and somewhat overpriced. But as theme park experiences go, everybody was wonderful and helpful.

Before the visit, you can buy tickets with a number of options for fast passes. I went for the one with 7 fast passes which included some rides in the Harry Potter area. The rides in the HP area, the backdrop ride and the one with soaring dragons were awesome!!

It was such a fun experience but it was quite busy therefore we had to queue for quite sometime for each attraction. Harry potter world is really interesting and must visit for the fans!

We arrived at the opening time listed on the universal website. This information was incorrect meaning we got there late, entry lines were phenomenally long and we missed out on an express pass. We were in the park for 9 hours and literally only went on 5 rides due to the waiting lines. Food in the park was expensive and... More

I attended with a group of friends on a Thursday, which is meant to be one of the quietest days of the week, and during winter too. We arrived at 9am and got in lines to buy tickets before we could get in the lines to enter the park. We bought the basic entry-only tickets, and despite both decent-sized lines... More

USJ a great theme park but it comes with a whopping price. There's the ticket itself and various top up options such as express passes. We chose to go with the express 7 and ended up paying around 40000 yen for two people all together. Although it is indeed very expensive, I am glad we did so. We went there... More

Not many people know this but you can buy your tickets at Lawsons supermarket. I did this because I wanted to buy the entrance and express pass together. I know a lot of my friends who bought their tickets (only entrance pass) from a local travel agents but I hate queuing for anything plus I was traveling with my parents... More

What a mind blowing experience we had at USJ! Our favourite rides were Harry Potter, the flying dinosaur and Godzilla!

We visited on Tuesday morning, not during Japanese holiday. It was not too busy, plenty of space and no wait for toilets, shops or even Butter-beer. We have purchased express tickets online to save time on waiting. IT ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT! Forbidden Journey ride was only 3 min wait. Recommend to do this ride first thing, it started to get...
