This was our first visit to Universal Stadio Japan. I've read many blogs and reviews about USJ here in Travbuddy, so I had wanted to come to this amusement park. We first planed to go to USJ by car, but it was very freezing day on that day. My husband didn't want to cross Sekigahara in the bad weather, so we went to there by Sinkansen. It takes only 50 minutes from Nagoya to Shin-Osaka by Shinkansen Nozomi. Shinkansen arrived Shin-Osaka in an instant. We were an Osaka beginners, but thanks for the Iphone, we arrived at USJ smoothly. We had not got an admission ticket, so we had to wait at a ticket office for a long time. The wind was very chilly. I felt that USJ was colder than NYC. We went to the wizarding world of Harry Potter first.

This attraction is so popular, so there is a limit to the number of people who can be accepted. I had enjoyed the artificial world very much. It was very cold outside. So each domitory's scarves had been selling like crazy. We couldn't ride the Harry potter attractions, but we enjoyed window-shopping at Harry Potter area.  After we went out the Harry Potter world, we went to various attractions at several area. When we went to see the Hollywood theater show, I was surprised to hear an M.C. 's story had a punch line. I think I can't expect this kind jokes at Tokyo Disneyland. With their natural jokes, I really felt Osaka's mind. The number of visitors of USJ had been hovering at a low level for a long time. But recent tactics did well, so the number of visitors was rapidly increasing. As a result, 2015's attendance at USJ was 13,900,000 people. Next time we will buy 'Universal express pass' to save our time and enjoy USJ more.
