What originally started off as a trip for two to fill the dream for Miki to visit USJ, quickly evolved at the last minute to a group ordeal. Normally Kazunori works on Sundays but was able to get some time off to join the group and serve as driver for the long 3 hour haul to Osaka.
For those of you who have been to any of the Universal Studios Parks in the US, this one is much smaller, but only in land area. The rides are exactly the same. Remember those video monitors scattered through out each of the lines to entertain you while you waited for your turn to ride? Well, they use the same videos here, just dubbed in Japanese. It was a bit interesting seeing Christopher Lloyd explaining the Flux Capacitor in Japanese for the Back to the Future ride.
