Christmas time at Universal Studios Japan!
I went to USJ twice last week, on Monday with J and then on Sunday with the Osaka International Lolitas, here are some pictures of the special winter foods and christmas decorations.
The popcorn buckets are candy trains!
Even the JAWS shark was feeling festive.
Not Christmas themed, but good to warm you up, there is an Elmo christmas bun but the queue was huge!
Such a cute pizza!
Christmas tree unlit.
The Halloween Happiness Market changed to….the Christmas Happiness Market!
Chicken chowder soup in a bread bowl, only 650yen, but the line to get it was about 30 deep.
Hot wine, was very sweet but such a tiny serving. The cinnamon roll was good, but it really didnt go well with the sauce.
These came with some cute christmas seseme street character flasks.
Santa is in the Christmas market until 4pm. The reindeer and tree are park guests having their photo with him.
Churros, they had a special salted caramel version.
Hot wine throughout the park.
People dressed up as santas and trees!
The market looks pretty at night.
Gift shop display with my favs.
This was the best view we could get, it was so packed. The show from what I could see was a bizarre mash of opera, a wedding and Christmas. I did enjoy hearing some more traditional Christmas songs, but the show was so over the top it was a little ridiculous. When the Christmas tree lit up it looked fantastic, and some small fireworks went off overhead. Yay.
My post about visiting with the Osaka International Lolitas here, includes pictures of Santas Toy March Parade.
