You will often hear Santa in Japan being referred to as a フィンランドのサンタ i.e. Finnish or Finland Santa. This is what we call a Lapland Santa at home. Basically, in Japan this is code for a non-Japanese Santa that is usually a native or 2nd language English speaker. There has been a big increase in the number of “real” Santa in Japan in the last few years.
The Kasai branch of Ito-Yokado have a Finnish / Lapland Santa visiting 3 times on the 18th of December. The sessions are at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. There will be an opportunity for a quick chat and photo with Santa on the 1st floor mall stage.
