Universal Studios Japan reviews
Written by Robert Niles
Location: Universal Studios Japan is located in Osaka, just off the Hanshin Highway at the Hotkou Junction (take the Universal City exit.) Universal Citywalk has its own JR (Japan Railway) station, and that would be your preferred way to reach the resort. Information on how to get to the park via train or motorcoach is available on Universal Studios Japan's website.
Tickets: Information about tickets, including the Universal Express option to bypass the queues at specific attractions, is available at the USJ website. Advance ticket sales are not available outside Japan.
What's Next? The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - the first outside the original in Orlando - will debut in 2014. The park's new childrens' area - Universal Wonderland - opened in March 2012.
