Santa Takashimaya Omiya Updated | SAITAMA CITY
December 15, 2018
Santa Takashimaya Omiya
Updated on December 14th further to talking with a representative at the branch.
The Takashimaya in Omiya Saitama City will host a Santa visit on December 15th. Omiya Takashimaya’s website has yet to release the information on their website (still on December 14th) and at this stage may never put it online. However, I found out about the event on the Takashimaya headquarters website and today rang the Omiya branch, and spoke to the loveliest woman with excellent English, to confirm the details.
Santa will indeed visit Takashimaya in Omiya tomorrow, Saturday December 15th. He will be walking around the store at three different times; 10 am, 12 noon and 2 pm. If you find him you can ask to get your photo with him (bring your own camera).
