Did your local mall used to have a Sanrio store? They were few and far between, but they were definitely magical. What can you say — checking out photos from Katy Perry’s trip to the Sanrio theme park in Tokyo is making us feel a little nostalgic for the early 2000’s, when our lockers were filled with Keroppi stickers, and we rocked that Badtz-Maru chain wallet.

(Of course, you might be still using yours. It’s totally cool if you are. In fact, we’re a bit jealous that you still have it.)

Perry took boyfriend Orlando Bloom with her, and from the looks of it, the two of them had an incredible time. While Perry posted these to her Instagram story, a quick-thinking fan grabbed them for fans that might have missed it due to the holidays.

This video below shows how dedicated of a Hello Kitty fan Katy Perry truly is:

And here, Perry has some fun with her plate. (We’re guessing this is supposed to be the Sanrio character Hangyodon, the funny yet sensitive character.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Perry’s next tour included a costume change that was inspired by this dress.

Finally, this tea table is everything — and it looks like Perry agrees.

We might be reflecting on Sanrio for the rest of the week, thanks to Katy Perry. (And uh — we’ll also be shopping the Sanrio online stores. They have tote bags!) But hey — we’re not complaining.
