Aesthetics Wiki

Sanriocore is an aesthetic centered around Sanrio Co., Ltd.(株式会社サンリオ) a Japanese company created by Shintaro Tsuji that sells cute (or Kawaii) Japanese merchandise. Sanrio's most popular icon, Hello Kitty, has become one of the world's best-selling brands. Sanriocore focuses on the more popular Sanrio characters such as:

  • Hello Kitty
  • Pompompurin
  • My Melody
  • Kuromi
  • Little Twin Stars
  • Cinnamoroll
  • Wish Me Mell
  • Pochacco
  • Tuxedosam
  • My Sweet Piano
  • Gudetama
  • Keroppi


Sanriocore crosses over into multiple aesthetics such as Traumacore (the aesthetic can be used as a form of vent art in this case) but is closely related to Kidcore and Softie. It focuses on a gentle, childlike innocence and nature, accompanied by the cute Sanrio merch and characters.
