We visited Sanrio Puroland – An indoor theme park created by Sanrio, Japan's leading maker of character goods in the morning. This is the land of Hello Kitty & her friends…

Located in the outskirts of Tokyo - Tama district, it took us an hour plus by train from Shin-Okachimachi. Take the Keio line and the rapid train bound for Hashimoto. Get off at Tama Centre and it’s a 5 mins walk to Puroland.

Don't be mistaken by my pink jacket (BTW, that's actually a Pooh Jacket) & skirt, I am NOT a Kitty Fan... Vance is a super Tabo-San fan and that’s the reason why we were there…

In comparison to Disneyland, Puroland is really small but it is still worth the trip as we were basically surrounded by so much "Kawaii-ness"...

It's quite disappointing that we didn't have a chance to take a picture with Tabo-San. The shops here (and everywhere else in Japan) don't carry much Tabo's stuffs as well... Maybe Tabo has migrated to Hong Kong or Thailand?

Vance: This is the 5th and last theme park for this trip! (Recap, we had already been to (1) USJ (2) Disneyland (3) Disneysea (4) SEGA Joypolis)

Location: Japan - Tokyo



Good morning! Mu Niu having his daily dose of caffeine...


It’s summer and the businessmen are in their power suit?!


Vance doing some last minute confirmation on the routing to Puroland…
Vance: This is NOT a posed picture! Just look at the amount of
"Paper work" and "Google Earth work" we have to go through!


Do u know how to read this?


Our Step by step guide to Puroland…


I believe these are value deals (Train rides + Admission Tickets to the various theme parks)...


Tama-Centre Station...


On our way to Puroland...


Sanrio ensures u wouldn't get lost between Tama Station and Puroland...


Here we are!





Admisssion charges... It's strange that they call children “小人” (Small people)?


Thankfully, there's guides in English...


Entrance... and we saw someone familiar...


The friendly staff of Puroland...


And yes, the familar character we saw near the entrance... It's Kerokeroppi!

Narrations in Japanese...


We didn't understand what they are talking... Nevertheless we still enjoyed the show...


Toilets inside Puroland...


Thanks to Vance, we managed to see how the male toilet inside Puroland looks like...


It’s really colourful…


Details like toilet roll holders are not forgotten…




Frozen Jap food with Hello Kitty faces (or in her shapes)?!
If only Disney comes out with such stuffs for Pooh Bear
[I'll be the first one to buy and Vance will be the first one to eat them :)]


Pose Pose... Can't find Tabo-San in the picture behind us...


Crowd getting ready for the performance by Hello Kitty and her friends...


Little Twin Stars...


Cinnamoroll...
Vance: They are really popular in Japan! After Hello Kitty of course! :)


That's Vance's favourite character... Minna No Tabo...
Tabo-San! He's also known as 大口仔 in Hong Kong & Taiwan...


Kerokeroppi...


Entertaining stunts...


That's skillful...


Tabo-San again...
