I went to Sanrio Puroland again, YAY! Puroland is hands down, one of my favorite places in the entire world. Its just so literally full of happiness! I don’t know how to describe it, but being there just makes me so happy, and every single other person there is so happy, and then we’re just all feeding off each other’s happiness, and it just becomes one contained magical tree of happiness!
We started off the trip by going to Shinjuku to purchase discounted tickets, which are about 50% cheaper than ticket prices at the door. (Adult tickets retail for 4400 yen. But in Tokyo, there are lots of little shops that sell discounted tickets – they’re not hard to find; you’ll most likely walk past one on a main street and find a long line in front. They sell discounted tickets for everything – subway, shinkansen, theater, concerts, Disneyland, Puroland, etc. The amount of the discount depends on which location you purchase them from.)
I even spotted the Hello Kitty tour bus while getting our tickets in Shinjuku! Sure sign for a Hello Kitty filled day
on the train to Tama City with our tickets!
Inside, Puroland is a fairy tale world.
And there are gifts if its your birthday!
This time, we caught the character parade.
Unfortunately Kitty Lab, my favorite part of Puroland, is not there anymore. Instead, there is now Club Kitty, where DJ Kitty teaches you to dance to Japanese pop music.
And the Sanrio Character Boat Ride is always happy fun.
I had to make a couple stops during our day for the french fries. Puroland makes the best french fries on the entire continent of Asia, and possibly the entire world! The fries are so super crispy on the outside and comfortingly soft on the inside.
There are abundant photo ops with characters throughout the park floor, but you can only meet Hello Kitty in her house.
Kitty’s House is now my favorite attraction in the park, since Kitty Lab is gone – Kitty Lab was a Hello Kitty 35th anniversary special attraction for Puroland, which is now gone. Maybe I’ll do a separate post on Kitty Lab later to share…
The purse I’ve been searching for! Unfortunately, its not available for sale in Kitty’s closet

Its a small park and lines are short, so you could get through it pretty quickly. Its the photos, games, and shopping that takes up the bulk of my time there. But Puroland usually closes pretty early, so I would recommend getting there early.
