  1. Hello! I like your post and I just wanted to ask if I could access Universal Studios Japan using this pass? Thank you and have a great day! :)

    1. Hi! You can access Universal Studios Japan by JR, get off at Universal-City Station. Enjoy Eco Card does not cover. If you buy Enjoy Eco Card, please get off at Bentencho Station (Subway Chuo Line) then take JR loop line to Universal-City Station.

      Have a nice trip!
