Osaka Pt. 3: Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan (USJ) was our destination for the third day. We came quite early before the gates opened since my friend wants to get into the newest attraction of Attack on Titan. We thought we’re quick enough, but nope, we’re actually quite late lol. We had to wait almost 45 minutes to get into the attraction. It was quite interesting, though. It’s basically watching a 3D movie of AoT with real live actors and titan mannequins. We visited the special merchandise store and of course, splurged quite a bit.

Our next goal was to visit the Harry Potter World! We had no map since we forgot to take one at the admission gate so we had to look around until we found that tiny Hogwarts castle lol.

Butterbeer goodness!

The first thing I did was get in line and purchase a Butterbeer. I’ve never actually tried one before but my friend was raving about it, so I gave it a try. It’s actually pretty good, but a bit too sweet for my taste. I purchased the one with a mug souvenir so I can bring the mug home with me as a gift!

I and my friend got ourselves a Slytherin robe and scarf. I was originally planning to buy a Gryffindor scarf but then I thought it’s quite common and mainstream, so I went for Slytherin instead. They look badass lol. The robe was purely an impulsive purchase. I cried a little when I saw how much money we spent on it. Welp, it’s once in a lifetime.

We wore the robe around HP world and the store and attraction staffs always gave us special treatment. It makes us feel good lol. We took lots of pics around but unfortunately couldn’t get into any rides since most of it is not suitable for people who get nauseated easily.

Boo-hoo.

This post ends the Osaka trip post. I hope you enjoy reading it!

  1. I miss the Harry Potter world at Universal Studios! Butterbeer is very delicious! I been wanting to make my own, but I haven’t been able to work up the courage to try copycat recipes. My favorite is the frozen kind. And I used my souvenir cup for a pen/pencil holder! I’m jealous that you got a robe! I always wanted to get one, but it’s just so much money! It’s outrageous! I did buy a Hufflepuff scarf though! I consider myself a Hufflepuff! I hope you had a lot of fun there!
