Japan Winter Homestay #2 | Universal Studio Japan

Thursday, July 05, 2012


Gomennasai (Sorry in Japanese) Please pardon me with my super overdue winter post during end of last year. I bet you guys wouldn't want to miss out this Fun Fun Fun USJ right? It's Universal Studio Japan in short form not USJ in Subang. Lol. So here i am updating my trip in Universal Studio Japan.
A total of 28 facilities in the cute and colorful new area featuring popular characters All family members from small children to adults can have super fun all day long!
The world's greatest theme park inspired by blockbuster Hollywood Movies - Universal Studios Japan™. Exciting attractions that realistically reproduce movie masterpieces, popular characters and entertainment that only Hollywood can provide... Suspend reality and step into fantastical worlds portrayed on the silver screen.
It's my first time visiting Universal Studio. I'm glad that my host family from Ono willing to bring me over. Apparently distance from Ono to Osaka took 2-3 hours drive, normally Japanese rather take public transportation but my host family are kind enough to drive me there all the way. Much appreciated for their kindness seriously. I love theme park, i love all the thrilling rides. Not forgetting all the cute and pretty decoration in the theme park! Can't wait to share with you guys my photos in Universal Studio Japan.

Please take note! This post is gonna be extremely photo-intensive! More than 100 photos coming up yo! ;D

So after few hours of visiting, we didn't realized how time passed so fast when we were just plain walking and checking out the street. Aha, Time for lunch then. We wanted to go for some fast food in Mel's Drive In, but all they served only beef burger. Then we switched to the nearest restaurant, Park side Grille. An elegant restaurant surrounded by a beautiful landscape of lush greenery and water. Enjoy special course menus at a restaurant reveals the image of Cinderella's castle.

The Amazing Spider-Man Photo Opportunity - This is the first photo opportunity featuring Spider-Man,™ a very popular movie character. Why not have your picture taken with Spider-Man™ while suspended from a spider's web? Pictures from movie scenes will make nice souvenirs. Strike a pose and have your photo taken with your friends. The queue for the photo session was way too long, hence i just walked pass the gift shop instead.

In conclusion, it was a FUN trip to USJ although not much rides i had in the theme park. Apparently i only had two, which were Hollywood dream ride and Back to future ride. Didn't manage to catch on the night parade as well due to we left USJ early for dinner. However i enjoyed my winter theme park experience, somehow reminded me of my Disneyland in Hongkong on last winter many years back. 

Mmmm i'll definitely pay a visit back no matter what! Perhaps to the nearest Universal Studio in Singapore? I heard some feedback from friends that it was such a disappointment because of the size was too small and not much rides, over all nothing as compared to Japan and Hollywood. Luckily i went to the right one first! Haha. Whatever, forget about the pathetic part! Lol.

Anyway I haven't been to the one in Singapore, i don't mind paying them a visit! Anyone willing to go with me? Planning to go on a trip down to Singapore for Big Bang Concert around end of September(My One and only semester break again! -. -), maybe i can add Universal Studio Singapore in for my coming trip. Sounds great har? Anyone with me? :)
