Universal Studio Japan
A theme park with a collection of world-class entertainment for all ages to enjoy. So agree because even my parents were enjoying it, a lot. I got my ticket from JTB Malaysia (Lot 10) before travelling over. It cost about Rm 280 (at the time of 1000 yen = Rm 40, in November 2016), or you can look for cheaper deal here.
Located in Osaka, is one of the four Universal Studios theme parks. I took the lesson for not choosing the weekends or the special occasion day to head over, or else will be ended up with mega long queue and super long wait like the one I experienced in Tokyo Disney Sea on the Halloween Day. Yay, I managed quite a lot of rides in here.
Major love with the 4K3D Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Flight of the Hippogriff, saw the others performing magic with the wand and spells, oh yes, I am a Harry Potter’s fan. Also, the Amazing Adventures of Spider Man’s 4K3D ride, Space Fantasy Ride, Terminator… and dancing with Moppy!
It was the 15th Anniversary last year; I got the chance to watch the fantastic road show. Besides that, it was just about a month to Christmas, I managed to celebrate the early Christmas with the legendary Xmas tree that ranked number 1 among the Top 10 Christmas tree to see in the lifetime. It is the Guinness World Records Record Holder as having the most lights on an artificial Christmas tree.
My journey begins with… The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!! It is my favourite place and I just couldn’t believe all the stuff I read from the novel were all so real in my eyes.
The cutest MOPPY! <3
Ahhhh, MOPPY!!!! But it only hugged kids
