Osaka: Universal Studios Japan Revisited 2018

Located at Konohana-ku, Osaka City in Osaka Prefecture, Universal Studios Japan (USJ) is one of the four Universal Studios theme parks in the world. It is owned and operated by USJ Co. Ltd with a license from NBC Universal. 

This theme park is one of the most famous and most visited theme parks in Japan. It opened on March 31, 2001, which coincidentally happened to be during my 14th birthday (Do the math and you'd know my age already). 

My family and I first visited Universal Studios Japan during the 5th and 6th day of our 2014-2015 Japan adventure (You can click the links to read more about our first visit to the USJ).  Thankfully, we got to revisit it again this year. However, unlike last time we only had one day to explore and enjoy it and we also did not have the Universal Express Pass which prioritizes us in the theme park rides. 

Here's what we tried out during our latest visit:

I'm very wary of today's weather because we booked a ticket for Universal Studios Japan (USJ). It was quite a gamble really as we had to choose between May 28 (yesterday), 29 (today), and 30 (tomorrow) for our USJ trip. All three are cloudy days with chances of rainfall according to the weather forecast. It only rained briefly yesterday and the day was only generally cloudy. So, we pray that the weather today would somehow be similar or better than yesterday's. 

God must have heard our prayers as it remained generally cloudy throughout the day. To make the day more special, Mr. Toshi and his wife decided to join us for today's trip. 

After breakfast, Mr. Toshi's daughter Ms. Sawa drove us to Univ…
