Visiting Universal Studios Japan is one of my top wish lists. I don't know when it will happen and continue to dream about it. Until I had the opportunity to go to Japan with my husband in December 2023 <3
Universal Studios Japan was the first agenda on our 2 days in Osaka. Since people recommended online that we should get to USJ early, we were tempted to get there at 7.30am but we are both night owls so we couldn't get up on time. But don't worry, we made it to Universal-City station at 8.45am. Since we were in a rush and didn't have enough time to have breakfast at our Airbnb, we went to McDonald's because the line was the least that morning. One thing I learned about Mcd's in Japan, they don't have milo like in Singapore, but instead strawberry milk in a carton.
Finally, we reached the gate at 10am. OMG! The feeling was unreal. By the way, if you go to Universal Studios Japan in a peak month, please get an express pass, it's worth it. We skipped many long lines and were able to enjoy all the attractions without being rushed.
So, what FREE souvenirs are there at USJ? Maybe some of you won't be interested, but if you know someone who would, please let them know. For sticker lovers like me, you can get FREE stickers at every attraction at USJ with their special designs. Simply ask the staff standing at the entrance of each gate, “Do you have a sticker?” or "Do you have the seal sticker?" Note : Super Nintendo World does not have a seal sticker.
Disclaimer : I know I get a lot of spelling errors, typos, etc. Because I wanted to fit everything into a small space and I didn't want to use too much correction tape. Thank You! :)
A sweet handwritten message from USJ staff <3
It was the best collectables souvenir I ever got. Best for journaling and core memories to remember :)
Have a sweet day!
