Japan is famous for celebrating all things cute, and a new hotel in Kōbe will be sure to draw in fans of the beloved and adorable American comic strip Peanuts.
The new Peanuts Hotel is scheduled to open on 1 August, according to an official website. Reservations for the hotel will launch on 9 July, so fans of the classic comic can start planning their trip fairly soon.
The website explains that the concept is taken from a scene from Charles M. Schultz’ famous comic, in which Snoopy finds a number of birds falling asleep on top of his dog house. With the caption “It’s nice to have a home where your guests feel comfortable”, the hotel has taken this on as a concept for how they will treat guests. There are 18 rooms in the three-storey hotel and each floor has a theme: imagine, happy and love. The rooms will each showcase a different comic. While not many details about the hotel are available at this time, the website says there’s more information to come in July.
If that’s too long to wait, luckily this isn’t the first offering for fans of the classic comic strip in Japan; there’s already a Peanuts Diner in Yokohama City and a Peanuts Café in Tokyo. Tokyo also boasts the Snoopy Museum, which opened in April 2016 and will remain open until September 2016. The final exhibition is called Friendship in Peanuts and will focus on the bonds between the characters – so start planning if you want to add the museum to your bucket list.
