My day at Sanrio Puroland ♡

♡Hello everyone! ♪♡
It’s been a while since I wrote something, since my trip to japan has taken up so much time! Σ੧(❛□❛✿) But now that I’m back, I’ll be documenting some of my favourite days from my trip including this one, my trip to Sanrio Puroland!

The rainbow shaped entrance to Puroland!

‘Sanrio Puroland’ is an indoor amusement park featuring Hello Kitty and all her friends, such as My melody, Gudetama and Pom Pom Purin !~ ♪ It has tons of beautiful photo spots, such as the giant castle-like entrance & Lady Kitty’s house, cute rides such as My melo drive ♡  & a boat ride, live shows, meet n greets, photoboots, arcades, a few different dining options AND plenty of gift shops! ♪ (๑>◡<๑)♪

~Travelling there~

Getting to Puroland takes a bit of time but it’s totally worth it!~♪ the station you arrive in has a glass ceiling with all the characters as well as cute signs telling you where to go. Around the town are hello kitty banners on the lampposts (so cute! ♡)
and a good amount of convenience stores/shops/arcades nearby. You’ll know when you’re there, believe me! (=゚ω゚)ノ ♪

~ A record of the day ~

 the first thing we did was collect a map of the place, and look around a little! We saw a bit of one of the live shows, which was interesting, although very crowded so it was hard to see! (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭⁾⁾
We then bought some ears to wear around the park (mine being my melo and my friend's Purin!♡)

Then we made our way to ‘Lady Kitty’s House’ which had a small queue so we waited for that... ♪  the house she has is so beautiful!! And we even got to meet Hello Kitty herself! lol XD

The first room in her house. the piano was beautiful!

The highlight of her house for me was seeing her picture of herself as Mona Lisa (and many other famous paintings) because it seemed really funny how she had pictures of herself everywhere! ^o^

The space around Lady Kitty's mansion! even the walls are cute...

Next, we made our way to check out the arcade! o(*゚▽゚*)o It was filled with claw machines and cute rides themed around the characters, I tried to win a giant my melody & some key rings but failed miserably... maybe i'm unlucky.. (I'm lying to myself I'm just really bad at these lol) :(;゙゚'ω゚'): We also checked out the shops; there are loads! so be prepared to bring money for them if you're a fan!

The my melody shop is so cute!

There’s also a big tree in the centre of the town place where Gudetama can predict your friendship! We got -100... I mean Gudetama makes mistakes sometimes, right..?! :(;゙゚'ω゚'):

I took my ears off to eat... the fries are even in a cute lil box!

And in terms of food, it gets pretty busy so I recommend getting lunch early! There’s free water as well (a little water machine in the cafeteria) ~ there weren’t many veggie options, so I settled for some fries instead!♪ If you’re vegetarian as well I believe there are pasta options too, but none of the character foods (except for desserts) I believe are veggie.. ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ=3=3=3

A hello kitty motorbike from the arcade!
We went on the lovely My melo drive, which was so cute! I am a HUGE My Melody fan so seeing her life as a story was truly amazing... also the cars are so cute as well! Sadly a lot of the rides had huge queues so I would really recommend getting to the popular ones early (eg boat ride) because otherwise it takes like 3 hours... (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭⁾⁾ *regrets*

Part of the My Melo drive display! too cute.. (T^T)/

~ Would I recommend? ~ 

If you’re a huge Sanrio/kawaii culture fan, this is the PERFECT place for you!
 I honestly felt like I was walking around a dream land because of how adorable the characters and place was~ (ᵔᴥᵔ)♪
The rides aren’t scary or particularly exciting, but more about learning about the characters and seeing cute stuff (for example My Melo drive, telling the story of My Melody’s life!~) which again I feel you do have to be a fan of cute things/the actual story to like!~♪ ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶

Also all the rides/items/shows are exclusively in Japanese, so if you are going I’d recommend you make sure you have at least a basic understanding of the language; You can definitely still enjoy it otherwise though!♡

Overall, because of the cuteness factor, the adorable sights, and the fun happy atmosphere, i’d really recommend ‘Sanrio Puroland’!~ ♪♡
Some of my souvenirs!
One last thing before I go!♪ above this picture is an example of a couple of souvenirs you can get ^^ the left: ears of your fav character, top: the album I made (polaroid pic of the place, the cute ticket they give you with a random character.. the album itself is from 'loft' btw!) middle: purikara from the nearby (outside of puroland) arcade, right: photo from My Melo drive ^^
