USJ has already chosen four or five candidate sites, which would be equal in size to the Osaka park, and is currently negotiating with local companies that could become business partners.
According to USJ sources, one of the candidate sites is in Japan.
“It will be an area other than the Kansai region (where Universal Studios Japan is located) or the Kanto region where Tokyo Disney Resort is located,” one of the sources said.
This suggests the area will be in the Tohoku region or the Kyushu region, including Okinawa Prefecture.
As for overseas candidate sites, the source said, “They will be in urban areas (of Asia) that have large populations and rising income levels.”
Taipei in Taiwan, Jakarta in Indonesia, and Mumbai in India are reportedly among the possible spots.
