  • Universal Studio Japan’s Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon & Other New Attractions Now Open

    03.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    A special press preview and opening ceremony was held at Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in the run up to the park’s Universal Cool Japan 2019 event.

     

    Universal Cool Japan is an annual event held at USJ where Japanese entertainment brands and companies who promote Japan’s “cool” culture to the world come together and turn the worlds they create into attractions. This year’s event will see attractions from “6 big franchises” including the first ever Lupin the Third attraction as well as Detective ConanAttack on TitanGodzilla, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Sailor Moon. A total of eight attractions have arrived, the most in the event’s history.

     

    The opening ceremony was held at USJ’s 4D cinema theatre in the park’s Hollywood area. Japanese actor Yukiyoshi Ozawa, who has played roles in both the Japanese and Hollywood film industry, appeared as a special guest. The event was attended by a small selection of just 100 fans of the entertainment franchises introduced to this year’s Universal Cool Japan.

    When Yukiyoshi Ozawa stepped onto the dark stage donning a very stylish outfit, the crowd erupted with surprise and a flurry of cheers. When asked about struggles that have been important to him, the San Francisco-born actor responded: “When I was accepted for the Hollywood film audition, I was trembling with excitement. I thought to myself, ‘This will help me grow, and I will be able to express myself to the world.’ On the first day of shooting [the Hollywood film], I was so nervous I was shaking, but when the first day ended, I realised that the entire system for shooting films was all the same, the only difference being whether it’s in English or Japanese. That relieved my tension and I was able to concentrate on the film shoot thereafter. You only have to step outside to see, but I think that more and more of the wonderful brands and works of Japan want to be received well around the world, and I believe that Universal Studios Japan is making that big chance possible.”

     

    Dramatic music played as gigantic visuals of Attack on TitanGodzillaNeon Genesis Evangelion and Salior Moon appeared. Ozawa spoke of his experience seeing three 4D attractions that are running for the event for a limited time, praising their high quality.

    Last month, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed on the Gobi Stage at Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States. Her Weekend 1 performance was streamed live worldwide and trended on Twitter in both the U.S. and Japan. After an accident during the second weekend left the singer alone on stage, many wondered if she could pull of a dazzling performance. Kyary’s joy and excitement completely transfixed the massive crowd, and the artist has drawn praise from around the world for her talent and passion.

     

    Kyary has returned to Japan to continue her ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ seeing the singer performing 30 shows across Japan. On May 7, she’ll perform at LINE CUBE SHIBUYA in Tokyo.

     

    In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities and has been attracting major attention. To celebrate the Tokyo leg of the tour, a new Tokyo collab has been announced!

     

    Kyary is teaming up with Kimuraya Sohonten, a bakery that has been in business for over 150 years. The brand is known for inventing the anpan sweet bun in 1874.
