  • I definitely recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. We came Friday/Saturday with 2 day passes. The lines to come in are long, the lines for the rides are long, the lines for food (snacks) are long. If you can definitely get the express passes they are worth the $$$. Nintendo World is cool but VERY VERY busy. Once the area is full you'll have to get a timed area ticket via their ticket section in the park or via APP. (APP is easiest.) The restaurants inside are pricey. The Mario Cafe food was cute but the food was barely warm. Everywhere in the park the staff is helpful, and very kind. The bathrooms are all over the place (if you have kids download the app to show you where they are), very clean, and big. They could really use more benches and seating areas around the park. It is a lot of walking/standing so wear comfortable shoes.
  • Such a fun place to visit I really enjoyed my time at Universal Studios Japan. The staff are extremely friendly and all the stores inside have their own individual theme it’s so much fun shopping in them as they are very interactive for children. My toddler is completely obsessed with minions we had the best time here. I did expect the park to be a lot bigger then it was but other than that it is well worth the visit. We went midweek which I heard is the best time to visit to avoid crowds I would avoid weekends and holidays if you can as it can get very busy.
