Spend a day at Sanrio Puroland, the home of Japan’s kitsch icon Hello Kitty!
Hello Kitty is perhaps one of Japan’s most recognizable exports. The face of this ultra-cute, mouthless cat is known around the world with Kitty products covering everything from straps for your cell phone to exclusive suitcases and designer jackets. You can even buy your Kitty products with your Hello Kitty credit card! She really is a freak. What few people know is that Kitty lives in London (at least this is what her official biography says) and her current favorite child is Tippy, one of the classmates at school. There is a whole world of kittens to discover.
For all Kitty fans there is a place in Japan not to be missed: Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo. This theme park is dedicated to all things Kitty. There are Kitty rides, Kitty restaurants, a chance to explore Kitty’s house, and the Dinner Show where Kitty and her old boyfriend, Dear Daniel (sadly had to move to Africa with his family) entertain the crowd. Feel free to sing along. A trip to this unique theme park is truly a must for Hello Kitty fans.
