In Keio Plaza Hotel Tama, a new photo spot based upon the motif of "Princess Kitty" will be created in March 2019. (C) 1976, 2018 SANRIO CO., LTD.

Our new photographic spot is based upon the motif of an original “Hello Kitty” character named “Princess Kitty”, and features a scene showing a three dimensional “Princess Kitty” gorgeously dressed and wearing a tiara at the top of the stairs. “Princess Kitty” has been designed exclusively for the Keio Plaza Hotel with long curly eyelashes and rosy pink cheeks to make her appear especially cute. Also, brilliant high-heeled chair, rose patterned carpet and other features accentuate the setting of “Princess Kitty”.

The Keio Plaza Hotel Tama “Hello Kitty” themed rooms were first opened on November 1, 2014 and have been extremely popular with guests with families. Sanrio’s amusement park called “Puroland” is a short five minute walk from our Tama hotel, and our lobby lounge “Duet” and delicatessen “Poppins” serve specially created “Hello Kitty” cakes and desserts.

The Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo located in Shinjuku will stop operating its existing “Hello Kitty” themed rooms on January 3, 2019, with “Hello Kitty” themed facilities and services to be concentrated at the Keio Plaza Hotel Tama in the future. In addition, Keio Line Tama Center train station, which is a one minute walk from the Keio Plaza Hotel Tama, was renovated in 2016 to include “Hello Kitty” and Sanrio characters and designs, and the airport shuttle buses stopping near our Tama hotel and Keio Line trains are also decorated with Sanrio characters.
