For Emily

To Laura and Emily,

To answer your questions, yes Hello Kitty and friends are everywhere,
with loot for kids and adults, modern and traditional, inexpensive and
exorbitant. And yes, there are Hello Kitty theme parks. We did not go
there, but I did not go out of my way at all today to snap this
picture for you. Hello Kitty is indeed ubiquitous in Japan.


  1. Emily says "Thank you Sarah." As soon as she read your post she immediately asked if we could go to Japan. I won't take her to Dorney Park and she's okay with that, but she thinks we should go to the other side of the world for Hello Kitty! I told her she could go with you next time!

  2. Ya!! And Japanese people are ubiquitous in Japan.
