Indoor theme park Hello Kitty Land Tokyo, also known as Sanrio Puroland, has pushed out a scarily cute programme for this year’s Halloween, in collaboration with Japanese horror production company Obaken.
The Puro Halloween Party, Kawaii Masquerade, which will take place from September 13 to October 31, will follow in the tradition of previous editions where visitors can choose from two separate events: The Kawaii Masquerade at daytime or a scarier night-time version.
During daytime, Lady Kitty House morphs into a beautiful doll house with special photo spots. At the Wisdom tree, visitors can meet and greet some of their favourite Sanrio characters dressed in Halloween costumes. They may even score a big hug with the characters during Hug Time.
In conjunction with the event, a new Halloween menu has been launched offering a wide variety of black- and purple-coloured dishes, such as Cinnamon’s black Halloween ramen or PomPomPurin’s masquerade donuts with pumpkin cream.
In the afternoon, the Halloween event changes to a scarier night-time setting. At the Halloween parade, visitors can snap photos with Hello Kitty Land characters, including Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, Kuromi, Wish Me Mell and PomPomPurin, who will dance and parade in Halloween outfits. On weekends, an hour before closing time, the Lady Kitty House will turn into the Horror Doll House.
Marketed as the most spine-chilling part of the event, the Ghost Pierrot Masquerade at the Discovery Theatre will feature a play created in collaboration with Obaken. Visitors will be able to actively participate in the event which promises many unexpected and creepy turns. The minimum age limit for entry to this event is 10.
