The world-famous canine character has a new home

Good grief! From December 14, 2019, Snoopy has a spacious new home in western Tokyo. Snoopy Museum Tokyo in Minami-Machida is the world's only official satellite museum of Charles M. Schulz Museum in California, USA. Global fans of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the whole "Peanuts" gang will find themselves among friends in Japan, all exploring a brand-new facility with a great deal to offer.

Snoopy Museum Tokyo's special features and exclusive goods

Snoopy hardly needs an introduction, but rest assured that this museum is indeed dedicated to the widely loved cartoon dog who is the pet of Charlie Brown. They and the rest of the "Peanuts" team have been familiar to newspaper readers and others for decades. The artist who brought the "Peanuts" gang to life was the American cartoonist Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000). His comic creations have been syndicated in over 2,500 newspapers and translated into 25 languages.
In many places around the world, Snoopy is even more popular than Charlie Brown himself, and the cartoon beagle is a perennial favorite in Japan.
After spending some time in Roppongi, Snoopy now has a spacious new home in Tokyo's western suburbs, with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy its many great attractions. In addition to a permanent exhibition featuring a sleeping Snoopy eight meters long, a special exhibition through June 28, 2020 covers the history of the Beagle Scouts, with the help of original drawings of Woodstock and his feathered friends.
Hurry along to Brown's Store at Snoopy Museum Tokyo to catch some exclusive plush toys that were launched to coincide with the grand opening on December 14, 2019. Other Japan-only items include a sushi sack produced by Fjällräven in collaboration with July Nine, and figurines made using a traditional Japanese papier-mache technique called hariko.

PEANUTS Cafe and fun workshop activities

When you're ready to eat, options at PEANUTS Cafe range from a potluck picnic selection featuring food arranged to look like Woodstock's nest, to pancakes marked "CHOMP! CHOMP! CHOMP!" A special workshop room is another feature of Snoopy Museum Tokyo. From December 14 to 30, 2019, you will be able to create your own Snoopy candle at a workshop held four times a day.
Another special workshop is planned for Saturday, December 14, when Paige Braddock, Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, will demonstrate to participants how to draw "Peanuts" characters. Paige Braddock joined the Schulz studio in 1999 after being recruited by Charles M. Schulz himself. She has been creative director ever since.
