This Week in Tokyo – 27 December 2022

Welcome to ‘This Week in Tokyo’, a review of the Maction Planet week that was and a look ahead to what’s coming up in the city. Hosted by Mac, our Founder and Lead Guide, you can check out photos from our tours and read insights into our explorations as we get under the skin of the World’s Greatest Metropolis, and beyond! This week we’re taking a look around Sanrio Puroland at Christmas!

From 3 November to 25 December 2022, Sanrio Puroland held its annual Christmas event, ‘Puro Christmas’. Pink was the colour, and pink was the theme, with a sparkling pink Christmas Party, special pink-wearing character greetings, Christmas food items, seasonal photo spots and lots more!

The featured image above shows Hello Kitty lording it over her minions, part of the main Christmas display as you enter Puroland. Perfect for a photo op.
