If you are like me, a chunk of your childhood was spent at the kitchen table, reading Peanuts comics in the Sunday paper. So when in Tokyo, why not revisit one of the world’s favorite comic strip characters?
The Snoopy Museum is located a short walk from the Roppongi train station. Beyond his fantastic work with the Peanuts strip, the museum has several exhibits related to Charles Schulz’s personal life. The biographical exhibits include photos of the cartoonist, sketches and pre-Peanuts comics, and vintage Peanuts mementos. The displays change periodically, so there’s always something new for a a Peanuts fan to discover!
The museum’s gift shop, “Brown’s Store,” sells unique Peanuts-themed merchandise, available only at the Snoopy Museum. “Café Blanket,” named after Peanuts character Linus’s security blanket, has a relaxing atmosphere and is a fantastic place to grab a snack after exploring the museum. Before you leave, make sure to take pictures in front of the Snoopy statues out front!
