Universal Studios Japan (USJ) is a very popular theme park located in Osaka Bay. The park has a great variety of attractions and entertainments suitable for young or old which include hair-raising roller coaster rides, child friendly merry-go-rounds, monster rock shows, and colorful parades with spectacular floats and dance performances.
Many of the rides and attractions are themed on popular movie franchises, such as Harry Potter, Terminator, Jaws, and Jurassic Park, and it is also possible to meet, greet, and take a photo with costumed characters such as Snoopy from Peanuts, or Elmo from Sesame Street.
To prevent the spread of Novel Coronavirus within the nation, Universal Studios Japan announced its temporary closure to at least the middle of May. In response to the Novel Coronavirus Emergency Declaration extended to May 31st, they have decided to extend the period of our temporary closure for the time being. The definite re-opening date will be announced later by considering the situation including the Government’s further announcements.
I was in Konohanaku Osaka where USJ(universal studio Japan) is located to check out a property. I passed by USJ and took some pictures. I went there first for the time. I was so surprised to see it was very quiet. Very few people were there. USJ is a strong attraction to visit Osaka. Not to visit USJ is like not to visit pyramid when you visit Egypt.
Usually the place is packed like a picture below peopel are from all over the world, but at the moment it is closed so only local people were taking a walk or walk a dog.
Some condoes are available to buy or invest in this area. After the corona crisis, people start to come back. Many restaurants and hotels are located here. Good location to go to Central Osaka. Many buses’s final destination.
