A Journey to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Did you ever sat on your couch on a school holiday, waiting for an owl comes to your house with an envelope marked Hogwart's logo ? Well, i did. Actually I still do sometimes, when i'm in the middle of bad day at work, lots of paperworks that make me want to quit the job and said "Fuck these shits, i'm going to hogwarts !" eventho I'm already on my mid 20s. Lol.

But then again, the envelope never came and you need to go back to reality and face your whole-damn-boring life......................................until this February. I found this magical place in Japan.

At the end of 2015, I never thought that Hogwarts was really exist until i saw one of my friend photos in instagram and saw the pictures of hogwarts and butterbeer. I was so happpyyyy to find out that Universal Studio Japan has their own area for Hogsmeade and Hogwarts. A magnificent area reproducing the world from Harry Potter stories on an overwhelming scale and with meticulous attention to the details. It was like all of sudden, your dream comes true! You dont need an owl to enter hogwarts, you only need 7.000 yen the to enter the wholeeeeee magnificent Hogsmeade and Hogwarts Castle. Yes i know it's quite expensive but totally worth it. The price is for the whole parks in Universal Studio Japan, not only the Harry potter. I could cryyy with tears of joy for the rest of my life !

Pumpkin Juice's Stall
Hagrid's House

The details were very overwhelming. You could buy a glass of butterbeer, and it was taste good! *cries*, You could go to Olivanders wand shop and experience buying your own wand, You could eat lunch at Three Broomstick or just go to the hogshead for some casual butterbeer drink. You could buy your own hogwarts robe and choose which house do you like (Slytherin, Hupplepuff, Ravenclaw or Gryffindor). You could shop many types of candies and chocolates at Jonko's and Honey dukes.

Actually, I can hardly describe it in words very well, you will know what i'm feeling if you could be there!
