Museums & Attractions

Located on the western outskirts of Tokyo in Tama-shi, Sanrio Puroland is an approximately half-hour train ride from Shinjuku Station. This theme park is an homage to all things Sanrio, the company that produces the patron saint of hypercuteness. Attractions include a Hello Kitty musical, peeking in on Hello Kitty’s house to see her go about her daily life, and of course the chance to meet the cat herself complete with photo-ops. As expected, the shopping facilities are extensive and they offer everything imaginable stamped with Kitty-chan’s likeness. One of the more interesting offerings is the Hello Kitty mailbox, a working post-box that will affix Hello Kitty postage to letters and postcards dropped into it and send them on their way.
