Japan: Tokyo/ Tama City (Sanrio Puroland/ Hello Kitty Theme Park)

Along with Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, Sanrio Puroland, a theme park dedicated to Hello Kitty and various other characters developed by the company, is one of Japan’s most popular attractions drawing over 1.5 million visitors annually! Located just 30 minutes from central Tokyo in Tama City, the park is easily accessible via the Odakyu Tama Line, the Keio Sagamihara Line and Tama City Monorail (Tama Center Station).

The huge 5-story indoor theme park, which opened on December 7, 1990 is comprised of a fully furnished Hello Kitty house (much like Mickey’s and Minnie’s houses at Disneyland), amusement park type rides, three theaters where various musical productions are presented, a film theater and a gift shop offering unique and ultra kawaii (cute) Sanrio Puroland brand items and merchandise.

The park also offers several themed restaurants including a sweet shop, a cinnamon shop, a buffet style restaurant and an automated cafeteria style restaurant.

During the summer months there are parades, concerts and a fireworks display that takes place daily.

As Hello Kitty has been Sanrio’s most universally popular character and the inspiration for hundreds of products that generate millions of dollars a year in sales globally, the park enjoys a steady influx of visitors not only from all over Japan but also from overseas. For Hello Kitty lovers, there can be no better place than Sanrio Puroland!
