Osaka, Japan (Day 3: Universal Studios Japan)

P1050511E

Our 3rd day in Osaka was dedicated to Universal Studios Japan. It’s not very often that I visit theme parks when I travel. Everyone was excited to be a kid again!

Our first stop was the Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic. I was only able to take a hidden snapshot (just like other attractions) before the show started. The show was entertaining but quite dated already. Kids will definitely enjoy this one!

We then headed to the Space Fantasy ride. This is a roller coaster ride similar to Space Mountain inDisneyland. I enjoyed this more though! You have to ride this when you’re here.

We also did the Terminator 2:3-D, The Amazing Spiderman Ride and some other attractions. The highlight of the theme park however is the Hollywood Dream roller coaster. This is a must-ride for me when you’re here.

Just like any other Universal Studios around the globe, the place is just picture ready! Though manufactured, I still enjoyed taking pictures of the grounds.

Don’t forget to wait for the parade at night. It might get crowded so it’s best to find a decent spot earlier. We were fortunate to find a front spot right in the middle where the parade takes a corner turn.

Overall, everyone enjoyed their visit in Universal Studios Japan! If you have a day to spare, you might want to drop by. The Harry Potter theme park is already open by now. Too bad it was still under construction when we visited.

For dinner, we headed back to Umeda and had some yakitori. This officially wraps up our Day 3 in Osaka, Japan. Tomorrow is the day I look forward to the most – temple touring!
