I’ve been itching to go back to Osaka ever since I found out that Universal Studios Japan was opening up a Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And I was super pumped to go, after having an amazing time at the one in Florida. This did not disappoint and I was amazed to see how much more there was in terms of buildings and merchandise since my visit to the US location a couple of years ago.
You can ride the really cool Harry Potter train to get to the park.
It’s like going through the Forbidden Forest where the Weasley car is now residing.
And ta-da! Hogsmeade!
We decided to have a meal at the Three Broomsticks – something that I didn’t do on my other visit.
I love the interior. And on the wall, every so often, there was a projection of an owl coming with the post.
We decided to try the roast chicken and each got a hot butterbeer.
And I’ll admit… I couldn’t resist the Harry Potter magic and may have splurged a little on myself. Gryffindor pride!
