Saitama Santa Meet and Greet locations

A reader has suggested that the Saitama Santa Meet and greet locations are hard to find on the event calendars among all the other winter and christmas events. So I’ve put together a Santa round up for 2018 in the hope that it is easier to find a Santa near you. Just click on the name of the location linked to be brought to full details in English. I am always open to feedback and / or questions, so please do comment if you think there is something I could improve. Thank you.

      Hahaha! We went to see the Santa we see every year today… for the last 3 years he’s had a Finnish accent, today it was unmistakably a British accent. Santa has been working hard on his English skills!
