Besides the food, another reason I wanted to go back to Osaka was to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios!
The Wizarding world of Harry Potter can only be found in Universal in Orlando Florida and Osaka.. So since I can’t go all the way to the US for that, Osaka was the next best thing! 😀
Because this area is so popular, you have to again get another ticket to be allocated a certain time when you can enter the area.
It’s a lot of effort, but IT WAS SOOOO WORTH IT!!!! They did such an amazing recreation of the world of Harry Potter!! I really felt like I was walking through Hogsmeade and experiencing the world myself! But before I talk about all the amazing sights around Hogsmeade, my advice for all visitors is to focus on getting into Hogswart castle first. Inside you will get to experience the most fun and amazing ride EVER in Universal Studios! The queues are long without the express pass, but I assure you the ride is well worth the wait!
And even before getting to the ride, I loved seeing the level of detail they put into the interior of the castle..
The few favorites of mine was the stairwell filled with the moving portraits.. And the hall with the floating candles! After the ride, the rest of the sights doesn’t have anymore queues, so we just took our time and enjoyed the experience! Such as drinking butterbeer..
I absolutely loved every second of it.. The movie and the book may have ended, but this place gives fans a chance to relive the magic of that world again for a little while 🙂
