Two Tokyo train lines will have Hello Kitty and friends covered carriages starting next month.

According to Spoon & Tamago and Nico Nico News, Keio Corporation’s Keio Line and Toei Shinjuku Line are getting the full Sanrio treatment.

As Spoon & Tamago notes, Keio Corporation also operates Tama-Center Station, which serves Sanrio Puroland, the Kitty and friends theme park. A couple of years back that station got a Hello Kitty makeover.
