For a look inside Universal Studio Japan’s Super Nintendo World check out this video with special tour guide Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Super Mario:

Growing up Super Mario was a big part of my childhood. I can’t wait to dive into the land of Super Mario! Not sure I will be able to make it to Japan anytime soon so it looks like I will have to wait till it comes to Florida or California…
