This overnight excursion to Universal Studios from Tokyo is the perfect hassle-free way to enjoy one of Japan’s biggest and best amusement parks. 

The excitement of your Universal Studios tour begins before you even enter the park, with your arrival in the morning of your first day at Tokyo Station, where you’ll board a high-speed bullet train (Shinkansen) departing between 6:20pm and 7:20am and take your reserved seat for the quick 3-hour ride to Osaka. Upon arrival in Osaka, you’ll board the local train to JR Universal City Station, and then make the quick five-minute walk to the park, stopping at the luggage lockers just outside the park should you wish to store any belongings. 

From there, skip the line and head straight into the park with your already included ticket. Universal Studios Japan is one of the country’s largest theme parks, offering a wealth of options whether you’re looking for heart-pounding roller coasters, themed worlds based on your favorite blockbuster films or kid-friendly areas packed with characters sure to please your little ones. Some of the top park areas include The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the mascot-filled kids’ area Universal Wonderland featuring favorites like Snoopy and Sesame Street. Or enjoy other great park rides like Jurassic Park – The Ride,  The Amazing Adventures of Spider-man – The Ride 4K3D or shows like Terminator 2: 3-D and Shrek’s 4-D Adventure. Please review the Itinerary section below for a list of park rides and shows.

At the end of your day of non-stop fun, make your own way to central Osaka and check in to Hotel Granvia where you can rest and explore the city in the evening. In the following morning, go to Shin-Osaka Station and catch your reserved bullet train departing between 11:40am and 1:50pm heading back to Tokyo (approx. 3 hours ride).

Superb, I would class the Bullet train as one of the Universal rides -, it's a jet airliner crossed with a train. Train times were good 07:00 Tokyo to Osaka, 14:15 Osaka to Tokyo the next day. Hotel was lovely with an excellent view of central Osaka and it's built over the station you use to travel to Universal and to the Bullet train station. Universal is vast and way, way better than Disney. You can do it in a day, but it will cost you, we spent an extra 300 pounds at the gate for 7 main attraction fast pass tickets for 3 people, but it was worth it. Osaka Universal is just superb, don't be put off by Spiderman, Arnie, Gru and the Minions all speaking Japanese, it make no difference to the rides and it was quite qwerky. Harry potter land is breath taking, just out of this world. One other bonus is this package is cheaper than booking everything separately, very good value and an experience.

Everything was efficiently prepared for us from delivery of tickets and vouchers. The hotel was conveniently located at the Osaka Station so we didnt have to look around. And the train tickets brought us up to the Universal City station.

I loved the bullet train it was very comfortable. Universal Studios would of been alot more fun if we would of had a star pass but was told they were sold out. So we only got to ride one ride. The motel in Osaka was nice except for the bed was like a rock. It was attached to a large mall so lots of shopping. When we left to catch the train it was confusing. Luckily there was a nice gentleman that put us on the right local train then rode with us to the stop where we caught the bullet train. If we had missed it there would of been a two hour wait. People are so nice here!

the hotel was very spacious with a very nice view, and helpful staff.i just wish there was a way we could lengthen our stay so we could tour more of osaka and not just universal studios since its just an overnight package. but overall the experience is great with good value for money.
