Information on how to get to the park via train or motorcoach is available on Universal Studios Japan's website.

Hours: Operating calendar from Universal'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.
