My best travel tips
Money and cost
Buying tickets in advance for Universal Studios Japan can be a tad bit difficult if you intend to do it online… unless you can read Japanese or you want to order from a travel agency. 1 day Studio pass costs 7,900 yen for adults, 5,400 yen for children (from 4 to 11), and 7,100 yen for seniors over 65. All the prices include tax. If you plan to visit on two consecutive days, then you will get a discounted price of 13,400 yen for adults and 9,000 yen for children, for a 2 day Studio pass (as of August 2018). To this you might have to add the travel agency costs. The most reliable online sellers are JTB, Viator or Get Your Guide.
Universal Express Pass - The Express Pass is an additional ticket that can be bought after you bought a Studio Pass (together with it in case you buy it online), because on its own it won’t allow you to enter the park. So make sure you bring both a Studio Pass and an Express Pass if you bought them online, or you’ll risk being left outside! Also if you have bought a 2 day Studio Pass, your Express pass will be valid only for the day printed on the ticket, just that one day, not two. This ticket lets you enjoy specific attractions with shortened waiting times, and it can be used to guarantee a good viewing spot for the night parade. A very important thing to remember is that every Express Pass includes a timed entry ticket to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Sadly, in fact, both the Express Passes and the Harry Potter World at the park are available only while supplies last!
How to get to Universal Studios Japan? To go to Universal Studios Osaka using a Japan Rail Pass you need to hop on the JR Yumesaki Line (also referred to as JR Sakurajima Line), and get down at Universal City station. There’s a pleasant 5 minutes walk to from the station to the park entrance. In case you don’t have a JRP, you can take one of the direct trains from Osaka Station. There’s more or less one every 15 minutes and tickets cost 180 yen. Make sure you always check the times also of last train for Osaka before you go, to make sure you know when you need to head back. Universal Studios Japan also has a bus connection with Kansai Airport and Itami Airport.
The JR Pass is the best way to travel Japan. Not only can you and your family enjoy unlimited rides on most JR trains, but you can also use many of the JR bus services as well. You can ride the famous bullet train, the express Shinkansen! You must purchase this ticket prior to your trip to Japan. Select and purchase your shipping area and seating type from the tour options. At the checkout, you must provide your your full name and title exactly as they appear on your passport, gender (Mr or Ms), a mailing address (no P.O. Box addresses) and phone number. After the purchase is made, the local operator will send you a JR Pass Exchange Voucher and detailed instructions by FedEx within 4 business days to the provided address.
