Matsuri Interview with USJ (Universal Studios Japan)
Congratulations on 15 years!
Q: For people living outside of Japan, can you explain what USJ is about?
This spring, thanks to our customers and fans, we have a new theme celebrating our 15thanniversary. “RE-BOORN! Over the top!” has new and entertaining rides and attractions for everybody.
Including The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman: The Ride 4K3D and The Flying Dinosaur with their cutting edge technology as well as the popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ with its overwhelming attention to detail. The towering Hogwarts™ Castle and magical Hogsmead™ village together with a variety of wizardly shops make people really feel like they’re experiencing the world of wizards.
The day when you truly feel you can use magic has come! After you meet your perfect wand at Ollivanders, make your way through the back alleys, come across a wall of stone, try a swing of your wand!
Q: Like the 15-year anniversary special rides and events, can you tell use the secret to your success?
We develop and expand upon our rides, events, and attractions one after another, and wait happily for our customers.
