No repairs for Harry Potter wand
Jun 2021
One Star to get attention. We bought a Harry Potter interactive wand and shortly after buying it it stopped working. We read online that that Orlando and Hollywood Universal Studios will repair a broken wand no questions asked, so we took it back to the shop. However they refused and claimed once sold they will not accept returns or do repairs. The interactive wand is expensive since the point of it is less of the wand itself and more of paying so that you can interact with the magical surroundings. Needless to say this was disappointing and I don't understand why the Japan location would have a different policy than its US counterparts.

日本是一個藝術的國家之一,東京到大阪建築文物帶出了日本的風格寺廟方面較為熱門重點壯觀美麗外表,奪目金色還有不同寺廟也帶出各有特色城市建築較為規律也帶出繁華日本另一面.東京日本各有特色美食非常吸引難忘的回憶個人意見提供參考Starchan
Japan is one of the countries of art. The architectural relics from Tokyo to Osaka bring out the Japanese style. The local aspect focuses on the beautiful appearance. The dazzling gold and the differences also bring out the distinctive urban architecture. More regularity and prosperity The other side of Japan. Tokyo and Japan’s unique cuisines are very attractive for unforgettable memories. Personal opinions are provided for reference Starchan

Love USJ! There's something they do different than other parks. All the staff is very kind and the merchandise is quite unique to this location. Recommend for friends, family, and must ride the dinosaur coaster.

Great Place!
Oct 2020
We went to USJ without purchasing any tickets beforehand, it took us less than 5 mins to purchase tickets. We went last Oct 2019 (not 2020), it was Halloween season. The theme of the place was halloween inspired. The lights, decorations, even Hello Kitty was dressed in a sppoky outfit, at night zombies will chase you,

Side note: Don't bring outside food because our food got confiscated at the entrance :(

I buy the annual pass each year and I wonder why. You go 3 times, it becomes cost effective. I never want to go more than that in one year.

Express Pass Recommended
Dec 2019 • Family
We bought our tickets through KKday for easy access via QRCode E-Ticket while we purchased our Express Passes direct from USJ's website as it was cheaper compared to packages sold from agencies. However, do note that the whole web page is in Japanese and would require and account and translation to complete the transaction.

Definitely a whole day or two would be required to complete all the attractions in the park with an express pass. We were in the park from opening till closing and although we purchased the Express 7, we did not get to complete 4-5 main attractions due to the queue.

We queued 90-105min for The Flying Dinosaur hence, it would be best to plan accordingly to fully utilized the time spent. Main attractions to visit would be The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Minion Park and Hollywood the Ride! Terminator 2 3-D attraction was presented in Japanese only to our dismay hence, we got bored halfway through it.

Would definitely come back again to experience Super Nintendo World in 2021! :D

Super full day at Universal Studios Japan osaka
Nov 2020
This was for my sons 10th birthday and my wife is also a pretty big Harry Potter fan. So the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was the main reason that we went but there was plenty of other things to do and see. The rides we enjoyed were:
Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogriff and Jurassic Park the ride (the last 2 were actual roller coaster rides, the other were 3D/4D rides). All of there were lots of fun but I prefer the actual rides to the 3D/4D rides. Make sure you get some Butterbeer - it tastes awesome. Also another tip is to go early or late for lunch as there can be a bit of a wait (also depending on where you go it can be a little expensive) Over all a fun filled, exhausting day that the whole family enjoyed
