Universal Studios Japan
Exhilarating theme park rides and an interesting insight into the Japanese take on Western culture and movies.
Universal Studios came to Japan in 2001 and the Japanese showed their appreciation by turning up in force - 11 million people turned up in the first year! It is the fastest any park has reached that milestone, making it the most successful new theme park in history.
And they haven't stopped going - 9 million visited last year, and we are offering you the opportunity to be one of them! The park consists of 8 areas (Hollywood, New York, San Francisco, Jurassic Park, Lagoon, Waterworld, Amity Village and Universal Wonderland),with 18 blockbuster attractions including Spiderman, Jaws, Back to the Future and E.T - and in 2014 a Harry Potter attraction opened.
You won't go hungry with 20 theme restaurants to choose from, and roving street performers will keep you entertained as you move around the park.
