Kawaii characters?! Delicious Japanese candies and Japanese snacks shaped like Sanrio characters?! Well, this can only be one thing! That's right! It is the Puroland Character Festival! Puroland often holds fun seasonal events, and this is another one of those! All throughout next month, February, Puroland will be holding a massive character filled with your favorite cuties. It is also celebrating one of Sanrio's newest characters Moppu, who was actually part of a past Yume Prize, because it is their birthday!
The event will feature some first time outfits for some of our favorite characters! For example, you can see kawaii Cinnamoroll and Hello Kitty decked out in some traditional outfits. This is the first time they have worn these garments before and people are very excited to see how they look!
Also being spotlighted at the Character Festival is the adorably lazy egg Gudetama! This is the egg's 5th anniversary – wow, how time does fly! – and many fun, limited time Gudetama goods will be on sale during this celebration.
Naturally, no event, especially a character festival, would be complete without delicious and kawaii character Japanese food! From a Cinnamoroll omelette to a Gudetama steak bowl, these foods are sure to be mouthwatering!
Last, but certainly not least, since February 10th is the lovable homebody Moppu's birthday, there will be a special meet-and-greet available with him as well! We hope we can get a chance to hug this cutie!
Aren't Character Festivals just so fun?! We hope that everyone who wants to visit Puroland during this time is able to! Let us know which Sanrio character you'd love to meet!
