Sanrio Puroland Hello Kitty Dreamland

Sanrio Puroland is an indoor theme park that’s all about Sanrio characters.  It is located in Tama New Town, Tokyo (about 30 minutes away by train from Shinjuku).  Each year, the Sanrio Puroland theme park attracts over 1.5 million visitors.

My Adventure at Sanrio Puroland:

At last, I have finally visited the Sanrio Puroland.  It is definitely a Hello Kitty dreamland, it’s filled with tons of Hello Kitty and other adorable Sanrio characters (but mostly Hello Kitty, yay).  During my visit it was actually a rainy day, but fortunately this theme park is indoors.  So, it’s a great place to visit during rainy days too.

I got the ticket on a sort-of discount normally 3800 Yen to 3600 Yen (-200 Yen off).  I found the voucher near the info desk at my hotel at Shibuya Tokyu Inn.

When I entered the theme park, I wasn’t quite sure what to do.  So I went to see the information booth for the theme park guide.  The theme park is divided into 4 Floors with attractions, shopping, and food.  To make it easier, I’m going to discuss the different floors starting from 1st floor.

The 4 Floors at Sanrio Puroland:
