Super Nintendo World has reopened at Universal Studios Japan

Super Nintendo World reopened

Universal Studios Japan closed its doors back in April due to the pandemic, shortly after the grand opening of Super Nintendo World. At the beginning of June, USJ and Super Nintendo World reopened and is now operating at a reduced capacity on weekdays from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Addressing the reopening, Universal Studios Japan released a statement:

Due to the State of Emergency, Universal Studios Japan has been temporarily closed since April 25, 2021. Universal Studios Japan will reopen on June 1, 2021 and will operate at a reduced capacity on weekdays only until further notice.

Universal Studios Japan will continue to implement enhanced health and safety protocols and capacity control measures while Osaka Prefecture remains under a State of Emergency and thereafter. Universal Studios Japan will encourage guests to depart the theme park at varied times to avoid congestion. Indoor dining dividers were also installed at restaurants throughout the park.

In support of Universal Studios Japan’s commitment of the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, all team members other than essential operational team members will continue to work from home.

Guests will continue to be required to wear a face mask at all times. Hopefully, the world will soon return to some kind of normalcy, as vaccinations continue to be delivered across the world. The Universal Studios Japan website has more information about the park’s safety measures and includes contact information in case you need to inquire about your visit.
