Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan (USJ) was the first theme park under the Universal Studios brand to be built in Asia.
Opened in March 2001 in the Osaka Bay Area, the theme park occupies an area of 39 hectares and is the most visited amusement park in Japan after Tokyo Disney Resort. (Which includes Tokyo DisneySEA)
 Universal Studios Japan currently has ten sections: Hollywood, New York, San Francisco, Jurassic Park, Snoopy Studios, Hello Kitty Fashion Avenue, Sesame Street Fun Zone, Lagoon, Water World, Amity Village.
 Visitors are able to enjoy many amusement rides, ranging from child-friendly carousels to thrilling roller coasters and simulators, based on popular movies such as Spiderman, Back to the Future, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park. 
 In 2014, a Harry Potter related attraction is scheduled to be added.
 An eleventh area, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, will open by 2014 with its flagship attraction, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. The area will be modeled on the areas of the same names at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Hollywood.
The theme park also offers many opportunities to take pictures with popular characters’ mascots such as Snoopy, Hello Kitty and the puppets of Sesame Street.

If you happen to be in the Kansai region, remember to take a day off to party with the  STARS of USJ!
We’ve had an awesome day!~
Just outside the park’s gates is Universal Citywalk Osaka, a shopping mall with multiple official hotels and many restaurants and shops, including stores selling Universal Studios merchandise and Osaka souvenirs.
Furthermore, the Osaka Takoyaki Museum, which is essentially a collection of several popular vendors of the local dish gathered under one roof, is located on the mall’s fourth floor.
 Great way to end the day with a delicious hot dinner!
