Trip Day 6: Sanrio Puroland (March 25th)

It's time for posting about the 6th day of the trip.
This day the group split in two separate groups, the girls and the boys.. XDD The girls went to Sanrio Puroland, home of Hello Kitty; and the boys to Ikebukuro, to the Amlux Building (AKA Toyota Building) and shopping.

We had to go to Tama, where Sanrio Puroland is located, which is an hour away from our hotel. It was raining and a little bit cold, but we were going to visit a Sanrio Themed park, so we didn't really care! xDDD
Once in the train, Maka and I decided to camouflage between the Japanese, and fell as sleep since the heat in our legs and the movement were so inviting.. xDDD
A hour later Tamar woke us up and told us we had taken the train in the wrong direction and we had to change; Maka and I were so mad and started whining until I saw we were actually at Tama Station, then Tamar and Eva started laughing at Maka and I.. xDD

Tama is something like Hello Kitty Town, that's why Hello Kitty guides you in all directions.. xDD

Hellow Kitty Town

It wasn't hard to find the Park, just keep walking straight from the Station..
We were relieved it wasn't on the open air, because the rain would've been a REAL bother..

The place was full of little kids and their parents, it's not that big but it's SO KAWAII!!!! No.., it wasn't cute.., it was totally kawaii.. I think "really" I understood the meaning of kawaii at this place.. xDDDD

When we arrived, there was some kind of show going on, we watched it for a while but it was kind of boring.. xDD So we looked around to find the 'attractions' xDD
First we went for a the 'Boat Ride', something like Disney's "Small World" (which scares me a lot xDD).
One of the girls at the ride so us and said: "Kawaiiiiiiii!!!" Then pointed at Maka's dress and said " Ahh, you are Angelic Pretty.., I am Pretty too!" xDDDD because Maka's dress was an AP and apparently the girl liked AP too! xDDD
Everything there is like a Fairytale.., lovely!!

You can see Tamar and I were really happy and excited..
Eva.., well, Eva not so much! She kept saying everything was too scary for her.. xDDD

Next we went to a 3D attraction called "The Time Machine of Dreams", I'm still trying to figure out why it was called that way..
Here we are waiting at the queue with our 3D glasses.. xDD

Now I want to stop a little to tell you at this point of the day, I've gotten LOTS of phone calls from a Japanese number, but due to all the noise inside the place I never listened until we were at a quite place..
I was so mad because I knew it was from the airport about my suitcase, so I started looking for a bathroom to phone back, the funny thing is that I went inside the men bathroom.. xDDDD
Anyway.., they didn't pick-up because it was lunch time..

Next visit was the Hello Kitty house. Prepare yourself for and intense pic spam of the place.., and be warned.., if you are allergic to colour pink get out of here now while you're still safe! xDDDD

Hahahahahaha!! That was so much fun and awesome in so many levels! xDDD
I'm My Melody (I HAD to be, she's my favourite character ever!!), Tamar was Hello Kitty, Maka was one of the Sugar Bunnies and Eva was Cinnamoroll.

The mandatory bathroom shot!


And a few more of the Puro Village before leaving..
The light was horrible there.., well, actually there was almost NO light.., that's why the photos are so dark.. ;_;

When we were going to make a stop at the store before leaving the park, we had the most awesome encounter!!
And as I said before.., My melody is my all time favourite!! So when I saw her I HAD too!!!
It was so funny because I was all happy, jumping around and hugging her!! xDD
And of course.., Kuromi was there too!

With My Melody

And a photo of a mural..

After leaving the park we went to McDonnald's and then to Akihabara because Tamar had to make some more shopping.
And what happens when you say Akihabara..?
Purikura time!!!


When we were on our way to Akihabara I called the airport to see what happened, and the y told me that they had located my suitcase!!
They lost track of it in Rome because apparently, at Madrid airport the girl at the counter never put the Madrid/Barajas - Tokyo/Narita, my suitcase went to Rome and stayed there, once in Rome nobody reclaimed it, so they sent it back to Madrid and they didn't know about it anymore..
Luckily, at this point, it was waiting again at Rome to go to Tokyo arriving on Saturday on time for us to leave next day.. xDDD

Later we went to meet my husband and Luc at Ikebukuro.
He was all mad and grumpy at me, but that's another story I won't tell because it's stupid like his behaviour..
