A replica of the Hogwarts Express is one of the many attractions at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in Osaka which is attracting numerous visitors yearly.
More than three years after this opened at Universal Studio Japan (USJ) in Osaka on July 15, 2014, USJ has doubled its foreign visitors and reached two million in 2017.
According to an expert, the theme park’s original attractions that are not found elsewhere have met foreign public demand.
Two of the main attractions that are not found in its counterparts in Orlando, Florida and Hollywood, California are the Hogwart’s Black Lake and the live owls.
