Fodor's Review

The 140-acre Universal Studios Japan combines the most popular rides and shows from Universal's Hollywood and Florida movie-studio theme parks with special attractions designed specifically for Japan. Popular rides include those based on Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, and E.T. The Japan-only Snoopy attraction appeals to the local infatuation with all things cute, as do the daily Hello Kitty parades. Restaurants and food outlets abound throughout the park, and the road from JR Universal City Station is lined with the likes of Hard Rock Cafe and Bubba Gump Shrimp, local fast-food chain MOS Burger, and Ganko Sushi. Due to high demand on weekends and during holiday periods, tickets must be bought in advance at branches of Lawson convenience stores and larger JR stations. The park is easily reached by direct train from JR Osaka Station (about 20 minutes) or by changing to a shuttle train at JR Nishi-kujo Station on the Loop Line.
