Sanrio Tour: Las Vegas Style

Are you planning your trip to Las Vegas and have been wanting to stop by all the Sanrio stores along the way?

Well, you're in luck that this Sanrio collector has decided to create one for those who live in Southern California or visiting California. This tour guide might not cover all the Sanrio boutique locations in California, but it suggests enough stores along the way as detour.

This trip will take you one day to visit all the stores, switch out drivers for the night-- then prepare for the rest of the long deserted road trip to Las Vegas. Or this Sanrio Tour of California is a fun start of a road trip for hardcore collectors who are looking to add memories onto to their Sanrio Scrapbooking collection.

This is an excellent idea for me to start commemorating everything when I finally get down to scrapbooking my Sanrio life and events that have taken place.

My guide starts at Canoga Park, but others who live in San Diego can start there with their local Sanrio boutique store.

Sanrio Tour
Destination: Las Vegas

Sanrio Topanga
Westfield Topanga Mall
6600 Topanga Canyon Blvd
Canoga Park, CA 91303
Notes: Find the farthest left of the parking lot and Park at the back of the Mall where Target is located. Next to Target is the Mall entrance. Go down the escalator and store is on the left side.

Sanrio Hollywood

Hollywood and Highland Center
6801 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028
Notes: The only way to be able to get into this parking lot is to come from Franklin Avenue. Turn left on N. Highland Avenue and after the stoplight, stay on the farthest right to turn right into the entrance of the parking structure (passing the Hotel next to it). If you hit the second stoplight, you have gone too far and have passed the parking structure. Once inside and getting a parking ticket, keep right to curve into a corner and head straight until you reach a dead end of a row full of cars. To the left is the entrance to Staff employee parking-- turn around and try to find parking in that area, close to the elevators/escalators in the middle of the structure area. Go to the very top floor of the escalators. From the escalators, turn around and head straight to the stores and turn left. The store should be at the left hand side next to a classic burger American restaurant.

Sanrio Little Tokyo

Japanese Village Plaza
115 Japanese Village Plaza Mall
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Notes: Coming from Judge John Aiso Street, turn left on 1st Street, you can find a few street parking to the right side (where the tall orange Japanese statue/structure). If no parking, turn right at the Central (across from JANM Museum), turn another right at 2nd St and there's another row of street parking.

Sanrio Pasadena

Notes: Located outside and not inside the plaza, but does not have a huge sign that reads Sanrio. Only street parking with meters.
