Sanrio Puroland – Tama Center

Are you a Sanrio/ Hello Kitty/ Kerroppi/ Bad Badtz Maru/ My Melody/ Little Twin Stars fan?  Do you like cute stuff?  If your answer is yes, you need to go to the Mecca of all things Sanrio/Hello Kitty: Sanrio Puroland!  Expect EXTREME CUTENESS!!! Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters will be welcoming you and taking pictures with you as soon as you enter.  There are lots of souvenirs you can buy that you won’t find anywhere else like candies, cookies, magnets, shirts, bag tags, kitchenware, bags, accessories, a cute Hello Kitty headband that I got and much more.  You won’t go hungry either as there are 3 main restaurants: Gourmet Bazaar, Food Machine Restaurant and Restaurant Yakata.  Plus snacks at Sweet Parlour and Cinnamon Dream Cafe. The surrounding stores also have rare Hello Kitty items like this bag of toilet paper I got at the nearby pharmacy.

Tama Center area map. Sanrio Puroland is close to Keiyo Hotel

Take the JR Keiyo line going to Tama Center (an hour train ride west of Tokyo).  You’ll see a map going to Sanrio Puroland when you exit the train station.  It’s a 5-8minute walk from the train station.  The park is open from 9am to 5pm on weekdays and later on weekends.

Super kawaii! Behind this is an area map

You can purchase tickets at the ticket booth before the entrance of Sanrio Puroland.  I suggest getting the Passport so you can have access to the park, theater, boatride, etc.  You can get a discount coupon for upto 5 people by printing it from http://www.puroland.jp/english/coupon.html.  The place is about half the size of Disneyland but if you’re a big Kitty fan like I am, you’ll end up staying there from open to close.  I spent my first 2 hours taking pictures with Sanrio characters and shopping at Festival Plaza.
