Families flock to Universal Studios Japan for the shows, rides, and attractions that fill the park, an installment of the international Universal Studios brand. The park includes a number of the classic rides and sections, such as Marvel comic book roller coasters, a Jurassic Park ride, and a Wizarding World of Harry Potter featuring restaurants, shops, and rides. Research tickets and opening times in advance, as lines can get very long. Note that most of the signs and performances are only in Japanese.

Really fun! I recommend you go when it opens and make a beeline to what you want to ride the most; that way, we got to ride the Flight of the Hippogriff after only waiting 2 minutes. Instead of...

Simply a blast to be here! Came on a Monday expecting thinner crowd but it was still full. Buy tickets in advance and don’t make the mistake we made and buy it when we arrived. Waiting in line is a common theme here but you can minimize it if you plan accordingly. Once you are inside the park, it makes sense why it’s so popular. Great presentation of different fun characters that you’ve come to love. For food, there is so many options to choose from. For rides, you need at least couple days to appreciate all of it. Everything is pricey even the food. Either way, that is all parks like this. Highly recommended and a must visit.
I definitely recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. We came Friday/Saturday with 2 day passes. The lines to come in are long, the lines for the rides are long, the lines for food (snacks) are long. If you can definitely get the express passes they are worth the $$$. Nintendo World is cool but VERY VERY busy. Once the area is full you'll have to get a timed area ticket via their ticket section in the park or via APP. (APP is easiest.) The restaurants inside are pricey. The Mario Cafe food was cute but the food was barely warm. Everywhere in the park the staff is helpful, and very kind. The bathrooms are all over the place (if you have kids download the app to show you where they are), very clean, and big. They could really use more benches and seating areas around the park. It is a lot of walking/standing so wear comfortable shoes.
