Stock up on Wizarding Supplies at Dervish and Banges, Owl Post and Gladrag’s Wizardwear in Universal Studios Japan’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Dervish and Banges – a one-stop shop for brooms of all kinds, wizarding knick-knacks and school supplies.
You can also pick up a spare copy of the Monster Book of Monsters here. Or maybe not.
Those weird devices from the Wizarding World like Sneakoscopes and Remembralls? Grab them by the dozen here.
Like most shops in the Wizarding World, inventory is often precariously stacked floor to ceiling.
The brooms need to be chained up – they’re constantly floating around.
The Quibbler, now with Spectrespecs!
Souvenirs sold here are themed to Hogwarts – you can buy lanyards, scarves and robes in the four house colours.
Dervish and Banges is connected to the Owl Post and Gladrag’s Wizardwear. It shares the same building with the Owlery.
There’s a cool music box at at a Dervish and Banges store window, depicting Harry’s Triwizard Task – outsmarting the Hungarian Horntail.
While the owls shown in this photo are all animatronics, you can sometimes meet live owls here. This is unique to Japan’s Wizarding World.
You can buy Hogwarts stationery at the Owl Post, and even send out letters and postcards with a Hogsmeade postmark.
Again, with the dangerous stacking!
The owls are watching… You can bring home a pet (plush) owl here.
The last store, Gladrag’s Wizardwear, is where most visitors try on Hogwarts robes for their selfies and then put them back. The Hogwarts Student look will set you back quite a bit:
