This place might be one of the best theme parks around the world. It is after all,a universal studios Universe! This theme park has many different themes like jurassic Park, Harry Potter and even one piece. The different universes inside are quite big and you will need some time to see it all and enjoy it. My favorite here has... More

Unreasonablylongqueue Simulator Japan, or the USJ as some call it. It is an amazing place to visit; however it's just too busy. I feel that the express pass just makes everyone elses wait even longer and kills the spirit a bit. The Harry Potter World is pretty amazing but expect to queue for over 2 hours for some rides if...

Crazy long lines here. I wanted to try the Jurassic roller coaster but the ride had a two hour line. Went to buy an express pass and all they had was the 4 ride standard so I bought it before realizing that the jurassic roller coaster was not part of the plan, only Jurassic-the ride. Buy the 7 ride express... More

To fully enjoy USJ, you have to be prepared to spend $$$..especially the Harry Pòtter attraction which restricts the free entry pass due to high demand. We bought the fast pass for 4 and plus the entry tickets caused us almost US$135 each. In view that we spent the entire day there till almost 8pm and had lots of fun..it... More

USJ was by far the biggest theme park I've visited yet (but note that I have never been to North America yet). It is easy to get to, and the park itself is well-maintained and clean. We spent most of our time at the Harry Potter area, which was indeed everything the website and brochures promise it to be. Being... More
