1. The Gift of Angels III: The Voice of an Angel

Back for the 10th year running, this award-winning live Christmas show is ready to capture your hearts. Get enchanted by the beautiful entrancing music from the world’s best boys choir from England “Libera”, you’ll wonder if these boys are literally angels from heaven.

Featuring a romantic Winter story backed up by some of the most spectacular light displays and pyrotechnic (firework) effects, you can definitely expect this to be one of the best Christmas celebrations of your lives.

Setting the Guiness World Record for the most lights on a Christmas tree, the Universal Illusion Tree is set to close the show with the grandest Christmas tree light up you’ll ever encounter. With each colour change grander than the last, you’ll surely be left enchanted by this magical tree.

Many people often start queuing up and reserving their seat along the parade passing as early as 3 hours before the show. With so little time in the park, you definitely wouldn’t want to waste time waiting in line.

Klook your The Gift of Angels III: The Voice of an Angel pass and gain access to the special viewing area! You’ll definitely want the best seats in the house for this award-winning show. Do note that this is NOT inclusive of the Universal Studios Japan admission ticket and you will need to buy that separately.

2. Minions Hacha Mecha Christmas

Forget a white Christmas – at Universal Studios Japan, Christmas is yellow! For the first time ever, Christmas is celebration with a touch of mayhem at the Minion Park. Get ready to dance to your heart’s content in a blast of balloons, bubbles and snow!

You can catch the minions in the holiday costumes with their great leader Gru in the Minions Christmas greeting sessions in the Minion Park. There are also never before seen Christmas decorations and even a candy covered tree.

Did we also mention that the Christmas themed minion souvenirs are absolutely the cutest range yet!  

3. Hogwarts Magical Christmas

Fans of the Harry Potter series will not want to miss the Hogwarts Magical Christmas! How many of you dreamt of having a hot butterbeer like they did in the movies? Well, now you can!

Wands up and get ready to cast lumos and glacius as you watch the castle illuminate right before your eyes. Mark your calendars for 9 November to 28 February because this is something you wouldn’t want to miss.

Stand in front of the Christmas tree at Hogsmeade and with the wave of your wand and Locomotor, watch the ornaments come alive!  Lumos will give the tree a warm soft glow. If you haven’t already gotten yours, be sure to get your wands from Ollivanders with the Klook Universal Studios Japan shopping coupon!

Even if you’re not into wands, all the other Christmas themed souvenirs are too cute to resist! 

Skip the queues!

With so many extra things to see and do this Christmas at Universal Studios Japan, the last thing you’d want to do is waste time standing in line. Klook your Universal Studios Japan 1 day e-ticket and you can enter the park directly with your mobile vouchers.

Better yet, if you truly hate waiting in line, be sure to add on a Universal Express Pass. This fastpass grants you access to shorter lines for the most popular rides in the park. If you’ve got more than a day to spend in the park, you should definitely get the Universal Studios Japan 1.5 day pass because 1 day is not enough to experience the full magic of the park.
