As of this article’s publishing, the official Universal Studios Japan website states that November 4 and November 5 are entirely sold-out dates but shows available tickets starting on November 6. It is essential to mention that this information can be updated anytime, as tickets for further dates could become unavailable if the Park reaches its maximum capacity again.

Universal’s Japanese Park continues to enforce strict control measures to prevent another outbreak of COVID-19, which caused this recent cease in ticket sales. Some of these measures include dated tickets, similar to Disney Parks’ reservation system, and two crowd-based systems to access certain areas of the Park, including Super Nintendo World — Area Timed Entry Ticket: Advance Booking and Area Timed Entry Ticket.
