USJ

I will write about theme park. I imagine Japanese theme parks are USJ (Universal Studio Japan), Disney Land, Huis Ten Bosch and so on. I think these theme parks are popular all over the world. I have been to USJ and Huis Ten Bosch, but I have never been to Disney Land. I think USJ is more interesting than Disney Land and Huis Ten Bosch. I think Huis Ten Bosch is good Japanese theme park, because we can watch a lot of flowers and beautiful buildings. However I love USJ than Huis Ten Bosch. I am interested in USJ, so I want to know about this theme park more.
