27.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

Two new guest rooms opened at Keio Plaza Hotel Tama on June 15 themed on the Sanrio characters My Melody and the Little Twin Stars (Kiki & Lala).

 

This year’s Sanrio Character Awards were held earlier this month. Both My Melody and the Little Twin Stars proved their popularity with fans as they came in 4th and 6th place respectively. With that in mind, what does Keio Plaza Hotel Tama have in store for fans of the characters in their new guest rooms? I’m here to let you in on the full scoop.

Keio Plaza Hotel is about a 30-minute train ride from Shinjuku and a 3-minute walk from Keio-Tama-Center Station. It’s also close to the city of Chofu where the Rugby World Cup will be held this fall as well as located in West Tokyo, an area enjoyed by foreign tourists.

 

There are two of each rooms available and they will be permanent rooms at the hotel. The hotel already has four Hello Kitty Rooms which were introduced in November 2014 and renovated with the opening of the new My Melody and Little Twin Stars Rooms, making for a total of eight Sanrio character rooms at the hotel. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Little Twin Stars Room.

  • Sanrio Character Awards 2019 | Event Report

    06.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Hi, everyone. Midori here from MMN’s editorial department.

     

    The Sanrio Character Awards is a hugely popular event held in Japan every year. The winners were just recently announced, and I got to attend the announcement event.

     

    This year marks the 34th run of the awards which have become an annual custom amongst Sanrio fans. People waited with a slight nervous anticipation at Puroland where the event was held as they awaited for the award ceremony to begin.

    The ceremony began with an initial greeting by Kabuki Nyantarou before the participating characters of the awards were presented on screen. There were over 80 entries this year!

     

    They took no time at all in listing the winners in order from the top. Cinnamoroll has reigned champion for two years in a row, but taking the crown this year is Hello Kitty who is celebrating her 45th anniversary. After her were Cinnamoroll and then Pompompurin. Hello Kitty is the poster girl for Sanrio but the last time she earned the No. 1 spot was six years ago in 2013, and last year she was in 4th place.

     

    Hello Kitty is the only character since 2000 to win three years in a row. The highest streak by the other characters is just two years. When the votes began rolling in this year Cinamoroll was initially at the top with Hello Kitty in 2nd place, but halfway through they swapped places. Of course, we mustn’t forget Pompompurin and YOSHIKITTY either who followed close behind them.

     

    Firstly, let’s take a look at who received the Special Awards.

    Cogimyun―Sanrio’s flour dough fairy character―obtained a much higher ranking than last year, earning her the Hop Step Jump Award. Fans were fascinated with this announcement as Cogimyun is said to the most elusive of the Sanrio characters.

    Hello Mandy reigned in the Collaborations Category, a collaboration between Hello Kitty and Mandy Sekiguchi from Japanese boy band GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE. Sekiguchi himself surprised the crowd as he was present to receive the award alongside Hello Mandy.


    Taking home the TikTok Award this year is Marumofubiyori Moppu. Moppu is a cute white bear who likes to lounge around at home wrapped in his favourite blanket. His sleepy videos were a hit on the Japanese TikTok.

     

    Now, for the main announcements.

    Ranks 20 through 10 were announced via large cardboard panels.

     

    The top 10 were then announced in order, from 10 down to 1. Each of these popular characters were announced until just 2nd and 1st place were left to be announced. The remaining two names were Cinnamoroll and Hello Kitty, leaving fans anxious to hear who the winner of 2019 will be.

     

    And the winner is…

    Hello Kitty, with 1,647,073 votes! Not only does she take home the top award, it’s also her 45th anniversary and the first win of Japan’s Reiwa era. Cinnamoroll came in a close second at 1,584,057 votes. I saw some fans with tears in their eyes as a result of this heated battle.

    At the end, the characters lined up in a big row and celebrated their rank by holding up a card.

    To celebrate her win, it was announced that Hello Kitty will hit up Sanrio stores across Japan to show her gratitude. Exclusive merchandise will also be available for purchase to thank fans for their support. Full details can be found on Sanrio’s official website.

     

    The Awards were also held in several overseas countries with the outcomes being much different. In Taiwan Cinnamoroll was 1st place, Pompompurin 2nd place and Hello Kitty 3rd place. In China, it was Cinnamoroll in 1st place, My Melody in 2nd place, and YOSHIKITTY in 3rd place, a collaboration between X Japan member Yoshiki. And in Hong Kong it was Pekkle in 1st place, Pompompurin in 2nd place and Cinnamoroll in 3rd place.

     

    This year’s award ceremony for the internationally beloved Sanrio characters comes to an end. Congratulations, Hello Kitty!

  • Sanrio Puroland Announces Puro Summer Festival 2019

    30.May.2019 | SPOT

    The scorching sun is already shining on Sanrio Puroland as it announces its special summer event Puro Summer Festival 2019 which will take place from July 12 to September 1.

     

    The festival will centre around three elements: music, food and beach. Guests can look forward to enjoying the park’s first ever festival-themed live show as well as an exciting beach event which will see the appearance of the indoor “Puro Island,” tasty food from meat to desserts, and lots more.

    For the live show, costumed characters will take to the stage to perform a mix of rock, hip-hop, techno, disco and soul music while beckoning the crowd in fun call-and-response segments.

    The beach will be brought to those who head into the entertainment hall where cute and colourful sea-themed decorations and motifs will be scattered around. Look out for the mascot characters wearing their summer costumes including a tanned Hello Kitty. Guests who pay a fee can also participate in a summertime-only “greeting” where they can meet the characters.

    Peckish guests are invited to the Puro Meat & Dessert Festival where they can try wolfing down a “mega” portion of the Gudetama Roast Beef Don which has 1.8x more meat than the regular size, or they can cool themselves down with special ice candy made in collaboration with Cold Stone Creamery.

     

    Sanrio fans can get their hands on exclusive summer themed merchandise too from toys to folders and more. And if you dress for the occasion you’ll even get a discount on entrance passports (the name for tickets at the park). Details below.
