We visited on a Monday, so the crowd was not too bad and our queue time was manageable (70min to 80min for most popular rides). The rides were all very exciting. The park has many restaurants and cafe. Overall a great experience!

I love theme parks so it's no surprise that I enjoyed USJ. Do NOT miss the Harry Potter ride - it was awesome!

I’ve always loved amusement parks... loved the thrill of the rides, and I usually plot our “course of action” for the day. First time I went to one while 7 months pregnant. I still enjoyed the place, though I was limited to only very few...More

The very disciplined Japanese culture is very evident at Univeral Studios Japan. People observe queues, no rowdy people trying to inch their way ahead of you, very clean surroundings. The attractions are all very impressive. My kids particularly enjoyed Harry Potter World. Worth spending a...More
