Cocoon City Santa

Unlike previous years Santa Claus will only be visiting Cocoon City for one day. A Lego Santa Claus did visit this past weekend (14th and 15th). The date for the 2019 Santa at Cocoon City is Tuesday December 24th, Christmas Eve.

Like the last couple of years, you need to have over a 1000 yen worth of receipts for Cocoon City on the same day in order to meet Santa and get a photo with him (with your own camera). He will be available for the meet and greet at three different times:

  • 1 pm
  • 3 pm
  • 5 pm

This year they haven’t specified if the numbers are limited, but in previous years he only saw up to 50 people each meet and greet session.  He will be in front of the 3rd floor ABC Mart in Cocoon 2.

Date: December 24th
Time: 1 pm, 3 pm and 5 pm
Location: Cocoon 2 in front of the 3rd floor ABC mart
Conditions: Customers with receipts for 1,000 yen of purchases in Cocoon City that day

Official event web page. 

Access Cocoon City

Cocoon City is a one minute walk from JR Saitama shintoshin Station, about an 8 minute walk from JR Kitayono Station.

By car: parking is available. Cocoon City is open from 10 am to 9 pm, but the cinema opens longer and the parking reflects that. It is open 9.00 am to 1.00 am. 200 yen for 30 minutes, but if you have a Cocoon card or if you spend more than a 1000 yen in one shop you get one hour free parking. If you use the cinema you get 3 hours free parking.
