Due to the impact of Typhoon Hagibis, Universal Studios Japan has decided to close the park on October 12 in consideration of the safety of its guests and employees.

Guests with tickets purchased for October 12 will be refunded.

As of now, the park is scheduled to resume operations on October 13, but could change depending on the impact of the storm.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon Hagibis (19th typhoon) is moving northwards over the Pacific to the south of Japan’s main island. Hagibis, one of the most powerful storms of the year, is on track to hit wide areas of Japan this coming three-day weekend (12th to 14th October) triggering rough weathers, transport delays, and suspensions. The agency says Hagibis will make landfall in Tokai and Kanto area including Tokyo from Saturday evening through Sunday.
