If you've ever wanted to travel the world, now's your chance. There's a massive Hello Kitty pop-up coming to Washington this weekend. You can travel with your favorite Sanrio characters to the most Instagrammable city scenes.

Nobody would believe that the beloved cat is turning 45, but she is, and it looks like quite the blast too. 

The Hello Kitty Friends Around The World Tour pop-up will see interactive rooms turned into cities like London, Paris, New York, Honolulu, and Tokyo that you can explore WITH Kitty! 

The sweet walk-through affair in Bellevue, Washington opens on December 7 and runs through December 29, 2019. You can book this adventure here before it departs for another U.S. city. 

The experience is priced between $27 for weekdays and $50 for an evening session that also includes a surprise tour gift. 

In London, the iconic character's birthplace, you can get some warm hugs from her family, sit at her mirror or sashay in her clothes. Your connecting flight to Paris will land you in a one-of-a-kind cafe where you can enjoy the sweetest treats.

You can also be a real-life topping on a gigantic-themed pizza in New York, take a vacay snap, hula hoop or relish a poke bowl at Honolulu. 

Your last stop at Tokyo is the cherry (blossoms) on top. A massive, kimono-clad Hello Kitty will pose with you, while you shop for the cutest, exclusive merch.

The whole tour should take you 45 minutes to go around the world.

We don't know about you, but we're excited about the Hello Kitty OPI nail colors, cute PUMA and Levi's street style merchandise, Girl Skateboards and Herschel Supply bags collabs.

You could also be one of the lucky ones chosen to get a FREE Hello Kitty-themed manicure by OPI. We've even seen anniversary editions of sparkling rose! How about that? 

Pick out your prettiest Kitty attire, because this is the place to be if you're a fan.
