In Okinawa, the show may not go on

Ocean Expo Park in Motobu, Okinawa Prefecture, was to have hosted a new Universal Studios Japan theme park.

TOKYO -- The operator of the Universal Studios Japan theme park is having second thoughts about its plan to expand into Okinawa Prefecture.

     USJ is now likely to focus its resources on its thriving entertainment complex in the western Japanese city of Osaka, at least for the time being, instead of building a new theme park in the southern island prefecture, according to people familiar with the matter.
