UNIVERSAL STUDIOS JAPAN: guide for First-timers

It was as though I entered a completely different theme park.

My first visit to the universal Studios Japan was in late 2012. It has been five years considering that then, and man, WHAT AN UPGRADE!

Universal Studios Japan feels brand spanking new!

Well, at least to me. The outstanding Adventures of Spider-Man is now refurbished with 4K3D projections. Back to the Future has been replaced by Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. In one corner rises the Hogwarts Castle, housing the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. and there are limited-time-only attractions that not only speak to the otaku in me but are all exceptional and exciting. That Detective Conan: The escape is cleverly crafted and wonderfully executed!

If you’ve never been to universal Studios Japan before, this guide is for you. If it’s been too long considering that you last went, this is probably for you too because, depend on me, it’s going to feel like the first time. (Not what you’re thinking, pervie.)

So here it is, a travel guide especially dedicated to universal Studios Japan, presented in FAQs (frequently asked questions) format.

For example, the Minion Park and the Wizarding world of Harry Potter are not in Singapore. Their limited-time-only attractions like Sailor Moon, Monster Hunters, Detective Conan, and final fantasy are also special to this park.

When is the best time to visit?

Universal Studios Japan is one of the most checked out attractions in Osaka. any Osaka-bound vacationer traveling with family or kids is a lot of likely to have them in their itinerary. In 2016, it is provided as the 4th a lot of popular theme park in the world. Hence, it could get crowded during weekends and height seasons.

What are the height seasons? According to a lot of online sources:

Golden Week (April 29 – may 5)

Obon festival (August 13–15)

New Year (December 31 – January 5)

If you already have a set schedule, just try to avoid checking out on a weekend. but as early as now, for the sake of your sanity, accept in your heart that you will NOT get to experience everything!

How much is the admission ticket?

Is there a way to bypass the long lines?

Yes, it’s called express PASS.

It’s an extra pass (separate from your park ticket) that you can purchase in buy to skip the long lines. There are two types of express Passes, depending on the number of rides you want to use it for.

Express Pass 4, good for 4 rides

Express Pass 7, good for 7 rides

At every crucial attraction, there is a separate lane for express PASS holders, so you’re guaranteed to be prioritized. just show your express PASS to the staff by the entrance.

So for example, if you purchase an express PASS 4, you don’t have to wait in line at up to 4 popular rides. To be clear, you can take pleasure in a lot more than 4 attractions of course, but you don’t need to queue for 4 of them.

Its best for those who want to make the most of their day.

You can also get express Passes from Klook. just follow the links below:

✅ get express PASS 7 HERE

What are the best attractions?

The three a lot of popular attractions are the following:

Harry Potter and the forbidden Journey

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

The flying Dinosaur

However, you must also enjoy out for universal cool Japan, an event that features limited-time-only attractions. For example, for January-June 2018, you can experience the following extraordinary rides:

These limited-time-only rides are widely popular so expect looooong lines.

These featured rides change every season!

What if I don’t have an express PASS? Can I still have a great time?

Desigur! but prepare to wait longer for your turn.

I personally don’t mind waiting if I’m with my friends because we could burn time just talking about anything. but when I was with my nephew, who was a very impatient kid, I regretted not purchasing an express PASS.

Without express Pass, how long do I have to wait in line?

Depends on the attraction and the season. If you’re lucky, 30-40 minutes. but for the very popular ones, prepare to wait for 60-90 minutes, often 120 minutes.

Bring something to entertain yourself while waiting. In my case, my phone normally does the trick. I just publish pics and check my social accounts. and oh, bring a power bank (mobile charger).

How can I maximize my time?

If you don’t have an express PASS, you might find these ideas useful:

Before the trip, research and identify your top 4 attractions. Now, get a map of the park and rearrange your top 4 according to their location. Your #1 attraction must be near #2 and so on.

Come to the park early. The earlier you arrive, the a lot more rides you’ll enjoy. The crowd grows thicker over time so be an early bird.

Once inside, prioritize your top attractions. Harry Potter is the most popular so it’s something to consider for your first pick.

Also, be mindful of certain schedules especially of the events and photo opportunities with certain characters. For example, Detective Conan: The escape only happens twice a day.

Are there lockers inside the park?

Yes, but these are small lockers only.

If you need space to store your big bags, you’ll find coin lockers ideal outside the park. use them before entering the park.

Here are the sizes of the lockers:

Small: 357×453×398
Medium: 357×453×533
Large: 357×453×802
Multiple Time Use: 360×425×300

Are there ATMs inside the park?

Da. bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and AEON Bank.
