Universal Studios Japan to resume nighttime parades from 2018

Kyodo -- Oct 31
Universal Studios Japan in Osaka will resume nighttime parades from 2018 following a year-and-half hiatus as part of efforts to draw overseas tourists as well as domestic visitors, its operator USJ Co. said Monday.

Using projection mapping, scenes from the Harry Potter, Minions and other movie series will be displayed on floats and a 587-meter-long route to give visitors an immersive experience, with a Transformers float shaped like a robot.

With new technologies combining light and sound, the Universal Spectacle Night Parade project will cost over 7 billion yen ($61.63 million).
