OSAKA — Universal Studios Japan in Osaka temporarily restricted admission Friday for a second straight day, after the number of visitors to the theme park reached the daily maximum capacity of 39,000.

The newly opened U.S. attraction, which is located in Osaka’s waterfront area, initially suspended ticket sales on Thursday, with visitors using the Golden Week holiday period to flock to the venue. Golden Week lasts until Sunday.

On Friday, entry restrictions began at about 8 a.m.

Major stations run by West Japan Railway Co. set up notice boards to inform visitors of the entry limits. The theme park opened at the end of March.
