A festive Western Christmas it was in Universal Studios Japan ユニバーサル スタジオ ジャパン Uniba-saru Sutajio Jyapan! Christmas wreaths were hanging everywhere around Universal City as we walked towards the infamous Universal Globe at around half past eight in the morning of December 24, 2008. It was a bright sunny winter day, bright enough to call out woodpeckers in Santa suits and Japanese-speaking yet blonde stars of Indiana Jones stunts. Popcorns popping, churros selling fast and sharks attacking boat rides – this is the usual scene as you strut the roads from Jurassic Park to Fishermans Wharf in o’l San Francisco, Osaka, Japan.
