Crowded and underwhelming
My USJ experience was back when my daughter was 1 and we were in Osaka. I guess maybe it was a rookie parenting mistake on our behalf or we just went on a day that ended up being ultra crowded, but it was miserable and we probably left about an hour or so into our visit. A huge waste of money at the time, and again I preface that by saying we were pretty naive! I think maybe one day I'll go back, but I wasn't wowed by the place at all.
The best theme park in Osaka!
Universal Studios Japan located in Osaka never fails to entertain you. It has nine different zones and dozens of attractions, shops and restaurants. My favorite zone is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Once you enter it, you feel as if you have step inside the movie. For its famous ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, I had to wait one hour but I assure you it was worth the wait! Hogwarts Castle fidelity is astonishing! 1 day pass costs around 7,600 Yen. This pass includes park entrance and use of all attractions. If you are interested only in the 7 main attractions, I suggest purchasing Universal Express Pass; to avoid standing for long waiting for your turn on busy days.
