Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo Japan ☆ サンリオピューロランド

I’m sorry I missed a post yesterday, Wednesday. I tried to finish and post it, but I simply did not have enough time to edit all the photos, create collage and write. The sleepiness won. Yes, I work on my blog at night after my kids are in bed.

Are you ready for an over dose of Sanrio character photos?

昨日、水曜日に、記事を掲載しませんでした。すみません。頑張って終わらせようとしたのですが、写真の編集、コラージュ作り、そして書く作業をする十分な時間がありませんでした。睡魔に襲われ、負けました。そうなんです、私は夜子供たちが寝静まった後ブログをするんですよ。

では、サンリオキャラクターの写真をこれからたんまり見ていただきますね。


Boat Ride

Parade & Show

Did you get enough dosage of Hello Kitty and her friends here? I met up with my uncle, aunt and cousin at Sanrio Puroland during our stay in Tokyo. My girls are still at the age where they would rather go to Sanrio Puroland than Disneyland. Sanrio Puroland is significantly smaller than Disneyland, but it’s not much cheaper to go there than to Disneyland. I personally would rather go to Disneyland, but for my kids, Sanrio Puroland is a wonderland.

A good thing about Sanrio Puroland is that everything is indoors and air-conditioned, so you won’t be affected by the weather once you’re inside. It is also small enough that it is easy to get around with young kids or babies in a stroller.

Many of the attractions are geared towards young children. There are many shows and musicals your children can enjoy. They are only in Japanese, so if you don’t speak Japanese, it might not be as entertaining. The parade shows are free and they are fun. Some shows are free and some have admission charges. You may either pay for an entrance fee and buy tickets for individual show or attraction, or you may pay for the entrance fee and a one-day passport to see all the shows and attractions. Click here for the ticket prices.

Do I recommend you going here? Sure, it is a fun place for children, especially for girls. It’s a very commercially oriented entertainment center in some sense, but most amusement parks are probably like that. You can certainly find a lot of cute Sanrio goods that will eat up your money in the wallet. Watch out!!

どうですか?充分過ぎる程キティーちゃんとお友達の写真を堪能いただけましたか?東京に帰省中、叔父、叔母、従姉妹とサンリオピューロランドで会いました。娘2人はまだディズにラーンドよりもサンリオピューロランドへ行く方が喜ぶ年齢なのです。サンリオピューロランドは、ディズニーランドに比べてかなり規模が小さいのですが、入園料やチケットの値段を考えると、ディズニーランドと大して変わりません。ディズニーランドの方が大人は楽しめるかと思いますが、サンリオピューロランドは、娘達にとっては夢が沢山詰まったワンダーランドの様です。

サンリオピューロランドの利点は、全てが室内で温度調整されているので、一度中に入ってしまえば、気候に左右されない点です。また、園内の面積が狭いので、小さい子供やベビーカーでの赤ちゃん連れ家族にとっても身動きがとりやすい事でしょうか。

多くのアトラクションは小さな子供向けのように感じます。アトラクション以外に、ミュージカルやショーが沢山楽しめます。今回行って感じたのですが、ショーが全部日本語なので、日本語が分からないと、こういうショーは楽しめないのかな...?という事でした。そうだと結構いらっしゃる外国人には可哀想ですね。パレードのショーは無料で見れ、しかもとても楽しいと思います。ショーは無料なものもあれば、入場料が必要なものもあります。入園する時に、入場料だけ払って、アトラクションやショーごとに払う事もできるし、一日パスポートを買って楽しむ事もできます。チケット情報は、こちらをご覧下さい。

皆さんにサンリオピューロランドをお勧めするか、ですか?お勧めです。年齢が幼い子供、特に女の子にとってはとても楽しいところだと思います。ある意味営利主義的な娯楽センターという印象が強いですが、どこの遊園地に行ってもきっとそういう感じではあるかと思います。心をくすぐられるとっても可愛いサンリオグッズが沢山あり、財布のお金をさらって行きますよ。買いすぎないよう、頑張って下さいね!

    I cannot believe I missed this place when I lived in Japan! Or, did it just open? Was it there in year 99-2000?

    It’s like every girl’s dream!!

    Sanrio Puroland!! It’s not just a little girl’s dream coz I’ve been there and I totally loove it (as I’m a Hello Kitty fan^^) Still remember how lovely the Kitty house was, every detail were kitty kitty kitty…hehe.
    Did you notice it too? me and my friend agreed that Sanrio Puroland must be fun for the dads too because the dancers on the shows all wear mini mini skirts & have great legs (^.-)-★ haha

      How funny you wrote that Hello Kitty land is also fro dads because I wrote about dancers in skimpy outfits and then I deleted them. Haha!!! I agree with you!! The Hello Kitty House was actually kind of cute. I thought that it was better than Mickey’s house in Disneyland. it’s a great place for Hello Kitty fans.

    I would have loved this place when I was young! I thought going to the Sanrio store in San Francisco was a treat, but it doesn’t even compare to Sanrio Puroland!

    Kaho, I noticed you said you create collages before you post (I think that’s what you meant, anyway). What software do you use to do that? I notice that many of your posts have photo collages and I really like them, but am not sure how to create them. Thanks!

      Hi, Mia! I think you’ll love Sanrio Puroland! It’s a cuteness overdose.

      You’re correct. I do create collages before. It’s easier and faster to post, plus it saves some memory space on your blog to upload a collage with several pictures together which takes up less file space than uploading the same number of photos individually. (If this makes any sense…)

      I use two different types; Picasa and picnik.com. Picasa is free to download to your computer. I highly recommend it. It takes up some of your hardware space, but if it’s not the issue, it’s great. It’s super easy to create collage with it. There is a collage button, so if you highlight the photos you want to make a collage with and click on a “create collage” button, voila, you have a collage. For picnik, they offer their software for free and also paid options. I used it for free at first, but then the options offered for free were very limited and I liked the software and saw that it would be useful, so I eventually decided to pay for the software to use online for a year. I recommend it, too. It’s fun! If you have more questions, please feel free to email me or ask me here!!

      For these photos, I use Canon EOS Rebel T3. This is the name they use in the United States. The same camera in other places are called Canon EOS 1100D or Kiss X50.
