Santa Takashimaya Omiya | SAITAMA CITY
December 15, 2019Free
Santa Takashimaya Omiya
This year Santa will visit the Takashimaya in Omiya Saitama City on Sunday December 8th. And due to the popularity of the event, they added an extra date at a later stage: Santa Claus will now also visit the Takashimaya branch of Omiya on Sunday December 15th.
December 15th Information
Santa Claus will be on the first floor of Omiya branch Takashimaya on Sunday December 15th at 10 am, 1 pm and 3 pm.
December 8th information
Just like last year, Omiya Takashimaya’s website has yet to release the information on their website and they may never. It is on the general Christmas page for all Takashimaya. However, last year I rang the Omiya branch, and spoke to the loveliest woman with excellent English, to confirm the details. She said it usually follows the same pattern – Santa visits at three different times. (The times are usually 10 am, 12 noon and 2 pm, but they usually only release that information in store from that day or the day before). If you find him you can ask to get your photo with him (bring your own camera).
Official Page confirming the date of his visit (but no finer details).
