This park is easy to get to by subway. This is the cleanest amusment park I have been to. It might be because Japan is the cleanest country I have seen. The Harry Potter area is very spectacular and I have never seen any of the movies.

To avoid disappointment, be sure to get your tickets online before heading down. Queues can get really crazy - ANYTIME/ANYDAY. Its a destination not only for tourists but also for locals. They queues can take hours for you to get in. When purchasing tickets can get QR code printed, easy access to get in. For the roller coaster ride please... More

If you need a break from the usual touristy sights, this is a fun place to go. I recommend getting there early before it opens because you'll be able to get on the most popular rides before there is a line up. The restaurants are pricey inside and outside of the park.

I loveeee this place especially the Harry Potter attractions. It's like stepping into the movie itself! You have to try the famous butter beer. One thing for sure u have to be there before the park opens cause there's just too many people. Queuing takes up to 1 hour sometimes but it's definitely worth it. I would absolutely come back.

I visited USJ in August last year. It's so crowded that I guess you have to line up at least an hour for each game. Luckily my son and I've got a fast pass. It's quite expensive but if you see the crowd in such hot weather, you'll find it worthy to purchase it. You save a lot of time... More

We went there on 1st January 2017 so you can imagine the crowd. Jam packed! We didn't get the Express pass as it was already sold out which was ashamed as we had to queue up for almost 2 hours to get on the rides. But luckily we were able to experience most of the ride towards the end of... More

We're usually ones to plan ahead and utilize reviews to ensure we make the most of our trips. And luckily we did for Universal Studios or we would have had a much worse experience. We tried to buy our tickets online the night before and we were actually sent to a third party broker in Australia, kind of weird just... More

For some reason, you couldn't buy tickets online on the english website so I would recommend auto-translating the Japanese website to get tickets and fast passes ahead of time. The waiting lines for the jurassic park roller coaster and the harry potter ride were both more than two hours long. But you can skip most of the line with a... More
