Have you ever watched Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and thought, “I wish I could go there”? Well, probably not, as the demons are rather scary.

But you can go there safely right now—with the Demon Slayer Corps virtually at your side—thanks to a new event at Universal Studios Japan!

For the next few months, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is taking over Universal Studios Japan in Osaka with a virtual reality ride that features a familiar train ride theme. A high-speed roller coaster and special VR goggles will seat you on the infernal Mugen Train alongside Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Rengoku! 

You’d think that would be enough to make your Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba experience complete, but Universal Studios Japan is just getting started. A wisteria-themed café with character-inspired treats welcomes you to the Demon Slayer Corps.

Inside, a lifelike Giyu Tomioka stands guard against any demon attacks while you snack. You can also pick up a special map to take around the park as you train to become the best Demon Slayer you can be!

And of course there’s merch, including a child-sized Tanijro haori (jacket) and a plush Inosuke fur cap that we are currently trying to figure out how to get our hands on.

The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba event runs at Universal Studios Japan from September 17 through February 13, 2022. Your ability to travel there might be limited right now, but you can browse through the official website to get a closer look at all the fun.

And you can always rewatch the anime series, subbed and dubbed, right here on Funimation, including the blockbuster Demon Slayer: Mugen Train and three special compilation episodes! And get ready for Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc coming later in 2021.
