Osaka
Osaka
Osaka is the center of Japan’s Western region, known for being a hub of gourmet cooking, the nation’s water capital and the “Vice President” of Japan’s cities. A symbol of the metropolis, Osaka Castle is a must-see attraction that is representative of the continuous historical changes in the city. Universal Studios is another destination well worth a visit, with its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minions and Sesame Street attractions all waiting for a fun-filled family visit. If you’ve got a small child in tow, fun awaits at the mysterious underwater world at Osaka Aquarium, or the nearby Tempozan Ferris Wheel from the top of which you can get a beautiful view of Osaka Bay. In terms of shopping, Osaka Umeda District in the north, Namba in the south, along with Shinsaibashi and Midosuji offer endless stores and malls to discover. Be sure to visit a couple times in case you miss something your first time in Osaka.

DanaI needed to separate my whole USJ experience review because I also have a lot to say about my exciting experience in the other rides of USJ other than the HP ones. I loved the Minions. Yes, I am no longer a kid, but I was still very excited to meet the life-sized minions. Their dance during the Finale show was so much fun! The Spiderman Ride was my absolute favorite because of how accurately interactively 3D it was. The hollwood dream ride was also fun. They have both front-faced and backdrop for the Hollywood Dream ride. I think the Backdrop one is more challenging than the one we tried. I especially enjoyed the Shark ride as well. Overall, USJ made me geniunely happy in 1 day. I basically forgot all of my problems that day, and that's thanks to USJ. ♥️

D28***47This part of Osaka is like Camden town in London. Narrow streets, designer and vintage shops, street food, pubs and crowd always everywhere. The most visible difference with Camden market is the lack of trash and trashcans. We lived nearby, so with a convenient walk we could reach out to these streets anytime. This is a must-see area in Osaka for designer handbag lovers.

DanaMY POTTERHEAD HEART WAS FULL WHEN I FINALLY VISITED THIS DREAMLAND! ♥️ I've been dreaming of going to USJ to finally experience my Harry Potter dream, and last March 2019, it finally happened! I finally was there. I have a lot to say! First, the Castle was magnificent. Well, not just the castle but, everything was an exact copy of all the places in the movies. Second, I got my wand from Ollivander's exactly as how Harry got his! Third, I bought ny Ravenclaw Scarf! I drank Butterbeer, and by the way, it's for ¥1000. Plus ¥500 if you want to buy the plastic cup. I ate at the Three Broomsticks. I stayed half of the day at Hogsmeade. The castle ride was an absolute fun! I did it twice! Lastly, it is a must to see the Castle Illumination at night. You should never miss it!
