We step away from our usual coverage of the U.S theme parks and take a trip over to Japan to talk about Universal Studios Japan and the New Wizarding World of Harry Potter that opened there recently.

Here at the Unofficial Universal Orlando Podcast, we recently added a correspondant from Singapore to the team and this correspondant, Xiao, recently visited Universal Studios Japan just two months after the opening of the NEW Wizarding World of Harry Potter inside the Osaka park.

We spend the first half of the show talking about Universal Studios Japan as a whole, then after the break we talk Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Xiao let’s us know how the new area of the park compares to it’s Orlando counterpart.

Thanks and enjoy the shows.

    Very interesting to hear about Universal Studios Japan. Also good to know that on some days people line up 2 hours before park opening and that many attractions are only in Japanese (as expected, but you just never know).

    Best to listen and have the online map of the park available to follow along.
