When’s the best time to visit Sanrio Puroland? All year round!

Sanrio Puroland is all indoors, unlike many other theme parks, meaning it can be enjoyed in every season, rain or shine, hot or cold. Just be aware that the crowded months tend to be in July and August when Japanese school kids are on vacation.

On a day-to-day basis, the park is busier in the morning, with the hours before and after major parades being the most crowded.

The walk from the station is less than ten minutes along a paved walkway leading straight to the park. Once indoors, extra luggage like coats can be stored in locker rooms while you enjoy the park to its maximum potential.

#1 Kawaii Kabuki – Momotarō by the Hello Kitty Troup- (show)

This show is a must when visiting Puroland. It’s a show that beautifully blends Japanese culture and tradition into the modern iconic world of Hello Kitty.

Kabuki is a classical Japanese dance-drama that began in the 17th century stylized by its elaborate kimono-like costumes, dramatic makeup, and its use of unique storytellers and stage handlers. This style of theater was also proclaimed as a UNESCO cultural heritage in 2008.

As a Sanrio production, Hello Kitty and her friends take this colorful stage performance into their own hands to tell well-known historical children’s tales. You can see characters like Pompompurin, Daniel, and Cinnamoroll in one-of-a-kind costumes, joined on stage by dancers.
