Sanrio Puroland theme park is the most like Disneyland in terms of shows and costumes — but geared for the Hello Kitty fanatic. It’s also not swarming with couples AND way less busy than it’s mousy counterpart receiving only 1.5 million visitors a year (Disneyland gets almost 20 millions visitors per year). No wonder it’s on our list of top 6 alternatives to Disneyland.
There’s no shortage of entertainment here either — with shows, parades, meet and greets, shops and rides all on the docket. Plus restaurants for when you need a snack break!
The theme park is a 5-minute walk from Tama Center Station, which is about 28 minutes from Shinjuku Station on the Keio Line bound for Hashimoto.
Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day, with admission prices during holidays being up to ¥1,300 higher. Adult tickets range from ¥3,600 to ¥4,900 on the day, and childrens’ ¥2,500 to ¥3,800. Discounted tickets can be booked in advance online here.
