Real Santa from Lapland visiting Maruhiro | AGEO
December 16 @ 14:30 - 16:00Free
Ageo Santa – The real Santa Claus from Lapland (Finland) is visiting the 4th floor of Maruhiro in Ageo on December 16th from 3 o’clock.
In previous years it cost 300 yen to meet and greet Santa Claus and get a present of sweets from him, but since last year the event is free. However, Santa will not give out sweets this year. It is limited to the first 100 customers and they will start giving out tickets 30 minutes before the event.
The information has not yet been released on their website, but it was published in their most recent e-flyer (December 11th 2018), which is linked in the grey details box at the very bottom of the post.
