This is meow-velous news!

If jet setting on a Hello Kitty plane wasn’t enough, then feline fans should make haste to Sanrio Puroland, Hello Kitty’s very own wonderland in Japan.

This funky indoor theme park is a mecca for all things Kitty: Rides, gift shops and entire buffet restaurants are dedicated to Kitty and her bug-eyed friends.

Visit Hello Kitty in her house, where you’ll meet her and get to know “her hobby, fashion and comfort,” according to the park’s website. Take a boat ride, get your face painted or nosh on a pastry puff shaped like Kitty’s adorable face.

But stay for the live shows, which are musical anime explosions like you’ve never seen before.

Yet another shot of Sanrio Puroland's entrance in Tokyo's Tama Centre.

Sanrio Puroland is open almost daily for a (fairly steep) weekday admission price of about$27 for adults. It’s in the city of Tama, less than an hour’s drive from the heart of Tokyo.

Those who’ve made the trek say that “Hello Kitty Disneyland” is “a dream come true.” But beware: You should “be prepared to fork out tons of money.”
