  • Disney series as well as the best amusement park in the country. Minion, Conan, Harry Potter too fun. So if you need a ticket is the Harry Potter area so beware!

  • Really enjoyed Universal studios. Bought entry tickets online via govoyagin and caught the train to universal station. Being a weekday was still really busy if you don’t have an express pass expect qu...  more »

  • Wow, universal studios Japan is amazing. I would recommend getting there at least an hour before entry as it is very busy. It was such a great park, with so many different rides for everybody. I will admit that the lines were quite long for everything we went on. We waited no less than 40 minutes for a ride. But they were all well worth the wait.
  • This is the place to go if you enjoy great rides! Do some research, check the crowd calendars before you go, and plot out your rides well to avoid waiting in lines for over 1 hour, if you want to maximize your time for rides, that is. I highly recommend purchasing an express pass if you can afford to pay the extra fees. By 6pm, we were able to ride 12 rides. Well worth it. We had such a great time and will be back!
  • I had a great time at universal studios Japan. Like my other trips to theme parks in Japan, I was constantly surprised and pleasantly overwhelmed by the high level of quality and attention to detail. Everywhere I went there were smiling faces and workers doing their best to ensure that I had a good time. The prices are fair and waiting times are made doable with entertainment. I can highly recommend going here if you want to experience entertainment of the highest quality.
  • Despite the packed holiday crowd, my family enjoyed the place with some careful planning. We enjoyed the Harry Potter section the most and even dined there for lunch. We also enjoyed the lights and sounds show in the area just before closing. Amazing! Next time, I will make sure to purchase fast pass tickets so we can maximize the fun!
  • Great place for both kids and adults. Special experience awaits during the holiday seasons and you can try holiday themed food and beverages. Waiting queue is long so it’d be better to purchase 3/4/7 quick ride tickets in advance if time is something you need the most. Pretty much an iconic place for capitalism- you pay more you get more. All rides are in Japanese but it won’t matter much. You can come out of the park and re-enter once.
