Universal Studios Japan has announced they will be re-opening on June 19 after a 3-month closure to aid in Japan’s efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
Recently, Japan lifted its state of emergency allowing for large-scale facilities to begin the reopening process.
Park admission will be limited to the following guests until further notice. This is based on a request by the Japanese government.
There will be a soft opening for annual passholders who reside in Osaka Prefecture beginning on Monday, June 8, and will require advanced registration. Special Studio Passes are also available for residents of Osaka Prefecture to enter the park on Monday, June 15 which will also require advanced purchase.
All guests will be subject to a temperature check prior to park entry and face masks are to be worn in the park at all times. Guests experiencing a fever or other health conditions will not be admitted. The park will also be practicing enhanced sanitation measures in accordance with the “Theme Park Infection Prevention Guidelines”. For more information on those guidelines, please visit the official site.
Once the park opens on June 19, admission will be limited to guests with an annual pass or other studio passes who live in one of the 6 prefectures in the Kansai area.
All team members will take part in new training programs on COVID-19 prevention and provide day-to-day healthcare guidance. In addition, all crew members and related personnel will undergo temperature checks at each park gate and are not allowed to work if they have a fever or are otherwise unwell. Crew members who interact with guests or handle food are required to wear a face mask.
