This is incredibly conveniently located around the other Universal Studios Japan properties. The train stop is there, and there is a huge variety of food choices that it's almost overwhelming trying to find a place to eat! 3 Lawsons are there if you need a convenience store, as well as an Edion to satisfy your tech/electronics needs. There's really not... More

We stayed at a hotel in the Universal City Walk Osaka area and walked through it multiple times. It is between USJ and the train. It is filled with restaurants and shopping.

As re-entry is not possible at Universal Studios, this place is definitely a must go before and after visiting Universal Studios. Plenty of restaurants with nice food and reasonable price can be located here.

I went there before dinner after a day in town looking for something alternative. The place itself is a break from a local culture and typically American. If you have been to the Universal Studios in the States then you will have a nice walk down memory lane. Nice shops and restaurants. Definitely a must even if you are not... More
