Summer magic in Osaka!

Always claim to love Japan but have never been to Osaka? Start to truly fall in love with the city this July as Harry Potter comes to town, alongside the fun and colourful Tenjin Matsuri (Osaka’s biggest summer festival).

Hotel Keihan Universal TowerAttention Muggles, make sure to mark 15 July in your calendar as The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ opens at Universal Studios Japan®. A ride on the Hogwarts™ Express has never been this easy, but do keep an eye on the wizards – they’re everywhere in the Hogsmeade™ village!

For a time-honoured yet equally energising taste of Japanese culture, the much-loved festivals Aizendo, Sumiyoshi and Tenjin all take place throughout July, bringing together traditional Japanese costumes, kagura music and bunraku theatrical performances with puppets, a mesmerising boat procession along the Tenmabashi Bridge and dazzling fireworks.
