Christmas is in the air at Universal Studios Japan. I got a chance to visit USJ this Christmas season and it was such an amazing experience. I had so much fun trying their Christmas offerings. USJ has prepared a number of shows, programs, and surprises especially available for its guests this festive holiday. (Read: How To Maximize the Full Value of JR Pass?)

USJ Holiday Tree
This year marks the last appearance of the famous and Guinness world record holder Christmas Tree of USJ. The tree has been awarded by Guinness World Records™ as having the most lights on an artificial Christmas tree (as of December 17, 2015, number of lights: 534,280). It is so fascinitating especially during night time when all its lights are fully illuminated. It’s definitely something to look forward when you pay a visit to USJ this Chrismas season.

Santa’s Magical Surprise
Santa’s Magical Surprise is one of the shows that kids and kids at heart can enjoy in USJ. The show offers a lot of surprises that audience will surely cherish. It features different cartoon characters, dances, and musical plays.
Christmas Re-BOOOORN Parade
Christmas Re-BOOOORN is a parade of extravagant and colorful costumes where visitors can party in with world renowned cartoon characters.
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman Ride
After the Christmas Re-BOOOORN Parade we tried The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman Ride, the world’s best attraction and the first to win the world’s best ride award for seven consecutive years. It’s one of the must-rides when you visit USJ. It’s a 4K3D ride so you will definitely have fun!
The Flying Dinosaur
Another ride we tried was the Flying Dinosaur. At any circumstances, I would have passed but I was already there so I did it. It was my first Roller Coaster experience and it was a helluva ride. I initially think I’m not gonna do it again but if I get another opportunity, I might actually. Hahaha!
The Gift of Angels III – The Voice of Angel
The Voice of Angel is an impressively beautiful show that will surely take your breath away. It’s a grand farewell to the last appearance of USJ’s legendary tree.
Dinner at Finnegan’s Bar & Grill
At dinner, we tried Finnegan’s Christmas Roast Beef Set. It includes a soup, a perfectly cooked steak with veggies on the side and a dessert. Finnegan’s Bar & Grill is located in the New York area of Universal Studios Japan.
Food and Souvenir
During our trip to Universal Studios Japan, we managed to try different food items. We’ve tried Santa Minion buns, Minions pop corn, sweet potato churros and a lot more. We also did window shopping so we checked several interesting souvenir items from stores inside USJ.
The Universal Wonder Christmas event is until 9 January 2017. For more information, check out their event page.
