Strawberries and blueberries will also dominate the stages in Puro Village at daytime. From 10th January until Valentine’s Day “Ichigo Ichie – MyMelody’s Strawberry Illumination” will show followed by “SPARKLE!! – Sweet Lights” featuring Hello Kitty from 15th February until 10th March.

As always Sanrio Puroland creates some special photo spots in line with the seasonal event. During the “very berry character hug time” at the Puro Village Hello Kitty Land visitors can get up-close and personal with their favourite characters dressed in strawberry or blueberry-themed outfits. Or maybe they will opt for the “Special sweets greeting” to be given candies by Hello Kitty or MyMelody at Valentine’s Day.
“We want to make the start of 2020 “sweeter” for our visitors to Hello Kitty Land Tokyo”, says Yuya Makizato of Sanrio Entertainment Co.
