Tricks and Treats for All Ages at USJ for Halloween


Although Universal Studios Japan is an exciting outing any time of year, during the Halloween season, USJ’s additional tricks and treats make for a particularly entertaining way to spend some free time. Whether you’ve got a whole family tagging along or you’re looking for a fun social option with friends, Halloween events at USJ will frightfully delight.

Daytime at USJ

Experience the family-friendly fun of Halloween with a lively costume party, festive parades, and various special features like trick-or-treating! The main event during the day will be the parade with performances starting at 2:30 p.m. daily. Get ready to be blasted with bubbles, balloons, and confetti, and expect to join in on the dancing for this sensational celebration!

For the younger ones, be sure to head out to the trick-or-treat event! It takes place early in the day between 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., so grab some candy and set off to the next attraction!

What’s Halloween without a costume party? At USJ this year, you can certainly get your fill! No costumes are required to come to this party though anything is encouraged! Whether you’re dressed up or not though, you’re certain to join right in on the dancing, games, and celebrating beginning from 12:00 p.m.

Nighttime Events at USJ

If the scary side of this holiday is more your style, be sure to check in after hours for some terrifying thrills. When the sun starts to go down at the park, the zombies, ghosts, and frights come out and keep you on your toes! Grab a map and be sure to hit all of the haunted houses and mazes, including a new zombie street attraction where you have to try and survive and escape a massive zombie attack! This year the Halloween Horror Nights event is occurring every day from 6:00 p.m. to close.
