Very commercial. Extremely lot of people when we visited. Very long queues to the different attractions. The Harry Potter world was very good.

I went to Disney Sea in Tokyo and all I can remember was the long queues and my tired feet. This is a stark contrast with my experience at Universal Studios Japan. I was able to enjoy it well because it wasn't so crowded - the longest queue was at the Harry Potter ride but it was worth it! What... More

My son loved it a lot. He has been both to the land and sea of the competitor but he says this is much much better than them. You can drive there and to leave your people, they allow you 20 minutes free parking. They do the same when you come back to pick them up.

I always love US theme parks. Been to Singapore and no here. Great day out and the rides were fantastic. The only downside were the queues... some of them we waiting for 70 minutes in 32 degree heat. I wouldnt go again on a weekend.... I would also make sure I go as soon as the park opens. Enjoy.

I decided to visit Universal Studios for the Harry Potter themed ride but wasn't disappointed with other rides as well. It is easy to get to and though the staff don't really speak English they are very helpful. Lines get very long so if you can, would recommend buying the pass with priority queuing. Would recommend to anyone who likes... More

You'd better get the ticket from the website; it's much easier. Moreover, if you apply a member of the USJ, you will have a discount in your birthday month. Buying an express package also a good idea as you don't have to queue up and waste your time. I recommend Spider man; ok for every age, but for Harry Potter:... More

So, I've been fortunate enough to go to Universal in Orlando a number of times. And that is just truly spectacular, as are the rest of the parks there. It's a bit unfair to compare the two, but you kind of have to. It's very easy to get to, with a direct train from Osaka Centre. Ticket prices weren't that... More

เมื่อครั้งที่ผมไปเที่ยวญี่ปุ่น นอกจากแวะไปเที่ยวยังสถานที่ต่าง ๆ แล้ว อีกแห่งหนึ่งที่ต้องไปให้ได้ นั่นก็คือ Universal Studio ไปนั่งรถไฟสายที่งดงามตามท้องเรื่องของภาพยนตร์ และแวะถ่ายรูปกับลูกโลกที่หมุนไปมา แหม! ช่างสวยงามเสียนี่กระไร? หลายคนที่ไปล้วนแต่บอกถึงความประทับใจ แต่สำหรับผมและลูกชายรวมไปถึงครอบครัว ต่างกล่าวเป็นเสียงเดียวกันว่า "ยอดเยี่ยม" กับสิ่งที่เรามองเห็น ลานกว้าง มีเนื้อที่เยอะแยะมากมาย มีสถานที่ขายสินค้า อาหาร รวมไปถึงโรงแรม และหากว่าท่านใดที่สนใจจะเข้าไปเยี่ยมชมภายในก็จะต้องมีค่าใช้จ่ายนั่นก็คือ บัตร Universal studio japan pass มีทั้งหมด 2 รูปแบบ 1.  Universal studio japan Day Pass 2.  Universal studio japan Express Pass   สำหรับบัตร Universal Studio Japan Day Pass มี 2 แบบคือ 1) 1 DAY STUDIO PASS 2) 2 DAYS...

Yes, the place is a wonder to be in. You can spend all day taking in the magnificence that is Hogsmeade OR, you can make the most out of your day pass. For a fulfilling one-day visit, here are the 10 commandments to follow, timeless, tried and tested. 1. Pre-purchase your tickets. You can do it online in the Japanese... More
