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.

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!

Everything was great except that 1 day is not enough to see USJ. Bullet train trip was at 7 am but could be earlier to have more time.
