Unless you have money to burn, read no further. Sanrio Puroland is not cheap! Even using the discount coupon that is available to print from their website, it still cost ¥11,600 for our family of four just to get in. Children under 2 are free. That is for the “Passport”. They do offer a less expensive “Welcome Ticket” but without the passport you won’t be able to see the shows or get into Hello Kitty’s house for a picture with her or take the little boat ride. Basically, you need the Passport to do just about anything. Please note that the entire place is indoors, so it IS a good idea if you’re looking for something to do on cold winter days or super hot summer days. I did expect it to be a lot bigger for the money we were spending though. We spent about 2 1/2 hours and were done. There is one ride. It’s a boat ride similar to It’s a Small World at Disney. The kids enjoyed that. Then we saw a live Broadway style show and visited the inside of Hello Kitty’s house and had our picture taken with her. There are tons of retail stores everywhere and a cafeteria. My kids loved the Hello Kitty donuts. ll in all, I’m glad we did it once while we live here. The kids did have fun. Crossing it off the list! -Kelly O’Donnell, November 2012
