    USJ is always great! If you time manage your plan you can see and ride most of the attractions! Since school was still in session the park didn’t seem as crowded so the wait time was less than 30 minutes per ride! Great place to spend with the family!

    If you can go off season I really recommend this place. In summer it can get very busy, access through car can be time consuming as the roads in and out are quite narrow, one lane often.
    The park is well laid out with lots of wildlife and safari tours. There are also theme park rides for kids from 3 or 4 years old. The restaurants are reasonable and the giftshops have lots to bring back home with you.
    There are many shows so if you plan your visit before you arrive you can fit in a lot of activities.

    Wonderful! Even though It was rainy Sunday, there were full of stories and magical sighting seeings!
    Not so long waiting time for each attraction. Food from Chinese restaurant, named by China voyager, so quite good.
    Many of staff were welcoming and nice enough to enjoy all. No English voice guide, but it was easy to fully involved into with very well known Disney’s stories.

    Got the highway bus from Tokyo, about a 2 hour trip. No issues with the e-ticket. Got fastpass for 3 rides, which saved us at least 2 and a half hours, included in the ticket. The coasters are incredible but huge lines to get on them. I went on a weekday that wasn't a public or school holiday. I'd get the bus back a bit earlier, say 5:30pm (park closes at 6pm). I got a 6pm return and lots of people waiting for buses around that time, very crowded. If you plan on getting there by bus make sure you book the bus ticket first. If you don't get a bus ticket then a park ticket isn't much use to you.

    I’ve been to Nagashima Spa Land twice. In my opinion it’s the best amusement park I’ve ever been. Would go a third time as well 😂
    Great attractions, good snacks or food and everything is clean.
    Definitely a huge recommendation

    They’ve got everything. From waterplay to a very tall and long slide. Pretty flowers all around the park.
    My kids love to go here!!

    I always visit zoo and Sea World in many places. More than getting knowledge, I wish the fee I pay will help the places having income to take good care of the animals they have and help in conservation their species.
    For Kamogawa Sea World, overall area is nice. It is located at the beach front so you could walk on the beach from the parking lot. The exhibition and how to present knowledge are good. There are many shows of animal, it is fun to watch. I experienced of taking picture with the smiling seal by purchasing activity ticket after the show. I had lunch at the Restaurant Ocean which there are windows that could see killer whale underwater. It is good experience that I could see how they swim and react to each other.
    But I found out from watching them that they were trying to find small piece of fish flowing in the water and eat them. They are hungry. After showing, I saw the whale tried to ask more food from the trainer but he didn't give them. I know that while showing, they will get reward from the trainer and that may cause them to limit their food but it is a kind of forcing and torture them. Seeing them swimming, they were not happy like when they were acting in showing time. In my opinion, just having them for knowledge and raising sense of preservation for visitors but no showing is the best.

    Probably the best Disney concept theme park I've ever been to! I went with my boyfriend on January 2020 before the pandemic happen to celebrate my birthday. They have the more unique and delicious snacks around the park, colorfully and amazingly themed areas. The night show was also the best!! There was a dragon that was in the middle of the sea which was SO AWESOME.

    More suitable for children or people who want to see a theater performance enter. Half a day can be almost finished

    Recommended to families who are planning to have a summer vacation in Karuizawa. A must see for families who have kids of any age range.

    The weather was pretty good when we visited. Cloudy yet windy... We thought it might rain so we decided to ride the family bicycle.. (Our kids seating in front and me and hubby doing pedal.) it was 600 yen per lap (2.5km) we are able to go around the whole place.

    We went to roller blade rink, in there a lot of slides and other outdoor activities for the kids and adults can enjoy too.

    Lastly, we do fishing... We are able to get couple of goldfish but only able to take home 2 goldfish per kid since we paid 300 for each kid...

    Whole day gone quickly but we are able to enjoy the nature together with our kids.. Next time wr want to do BBQ there since there is a specific place for that..

    Definitely a perfect place to visit with the whole family.

    This is a solid amusement park with a variety of rides. The rollercoasters are not the biggest, fastest, or most intense, but they provide a solid thrill. The park also seems to be not that crowded at all, as it's kind of in the middle of nowhere.

    On that note, the park seems to have a non-functioning website and little tourist info available. While you'll see that the closest station is Arao, there's basically nothing there and you might have trouble getting transit to the park from there. I'd recommend stopping one station earlier (if coming from the north) at Omuta 大牟田駅. (If you're coming from Fukuoka, you can get a limited express to Tosu or Kurume, or a Shinkansen; all options are similar price when you factor in the secondary ticket you need, and it takes around an hour from Hakata to Omuta station). From Omuta station, there is a bus that runs every 45 minutes on a route between the station and the park. Cost is 400円 per adult (busses require payment in exact change; change machine is on board, but it doesn't work with 10000円 bills). You can also hail a taxi if you're impatient. That will cost you around 2000円.

    I'd recommend brushing up on some basic Japanese before the trip. I think the park was built to attract tourists to the area, but it's, as noted above, rather off the beaten path, and most of the park staff speak extremely minimal, if any English. I had much better luck using broken Japanese. When ordering lunch at the cafeteria in particular, some basic Japanese will come in handy because the staff we interacted with didn't seem to speak any English, and the menu was all Japanese (if you can read Hiragana and Katakana, you will be able to pick out obvious staples like Soba and Ramen; Yakitori was also a solid choice).

    Back to the rides, the chair lift with no bar was pretty neat. Indoor coaster (black hole) was ok; not a stand-out thriller, but nice on a hot summer day. Milky Way (stand-up coaster) was probably my favorite coaster, followed by Gao (though the latter is showing it's age and is rather jerky for a steel coaster; also they added too many brakes for my liking). Don't miss the giant swinging chairs ride (I forget the name). The view of the area is great, and it's quite relaxing.

    Final note: they accept cards at the ticket office, but everywhere else we stopped inside the park was cash only. There are also no ATMs in the park. I'd advise bringing plenty of cash with you, but in the event you need more, you can exit the park and there's a Family Mart ~200 meters from the main gate.

    It’s all right, nothing “wow”, Tokyo City has better illuminations in my opinion. Unless you live close by or combine the rides and the illumination, i wouldn’t bother going.
