There’s quite a lot of attraction in here and their specialty is the spiderman show, it is a simulator show, so basically you just sit on the seat and enjoy it. The architecture of the building is great and very realistic, and there’s a small lake inside as well.

There’s a lot variety of food, so you can choose your lunch based on your tounge. I eat Western food called “Manhattan” (fish set) which cost ¥2999 ($29). That’s the most expensive restaurant in USJ and decorated with European style. I do a lot of snacks shopping as well, and there is so many shop inside. Children love it here, from Hello Kitty cafe to Snoopy cafe they’ve got it.
