Universal Studios Japan Temporarily Closes Again

Universal Studios Japan will temporarily close from April 25, 2021, until May 11, 2021 (the closure may be extended depending on the situation). Osaka has entered the third State of Emergency (which was announced April 23, 2021), which requests large theme parks, shopping centers, entertainment facilities, and restaurants to close. This is the second time Universal Studios Japan has closed during the pandemic.

This State of Emergency extends to the prefectures of Tokyo, Hyogo, and Kyoto, along with Osaka due to the surge of new COVID-19 cases. It’s set to last from April 25, 2021, through May 11, 2021, which covers Golden Week (one of the biggest holidays in Japan).

Vaccination within Japan has been a slow rollout with only about 1% of the population having received at least one shot so far.

There’s no word on Tokyo Disney Resort as the Resort is located in Chiba prefecture beside Tokyo.

Universal Studios Japan recently opened its highly anticipated Super Nintendo World last month.
