Universal CityWalk Osaka Details

We got to visit Universal CityWalk Osaka during the 6th day of our 2014-2015 Japan trip. It is very accessible to Hotel Keihan which was our home for the day. Since it's very close we got the chance to visit the Osaka Takoyaki Museum and eat dinner at the Daikisuisan Revolving Sushi restaurant and then lunch the next day at Ra-men restaurant.

Universal CityWalk Osaka has a shopping mall that is filled with numerous shops and restaurants. It also connects Universal Studios Japan with the nearby Universal-City Station. The first CityWalk originated as an expansion of Universal Studios Hollywood. Since then each park had its own CityWalk.

Aside from that we also got the chance to watch a monkey show at the Universal CityWalk Osaka. Lastly, the Universal CityWalk Osaka is also the last part of Universal Studios Japan that we got to visit before going back home to Kumatori (because the train station is there). 

So many restaurants to choose from...
