Sanrio Puroland is a theme park that is purely all about the Sanrio theme, characters like Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, and more.  This theme park opened its doors on December 7, 1990 and it is located in Tama New Town, Tokyo.  It hosts lots of rides, attractions, restaurants, and an awesome gift shop selling Sanrio merchandise.  The park is definitely a must visit place for those who love Sanrio (well, especially Hello Kitty).
