Our tips for Universal Studios

  • Learn a little before you go: It always helps if you can understand a few words of Japanese before you go. There are plenty of apps and books to help you. Even a thank-you 'arigato' after the tour will help. 
  • Keep some change: Cash is still the primary payment source, although cards are accepted. So be sure to have plenty with you on your tour as there may be souvenir buying opportunities.
