A Peanuts-themed hotel just opened in Japan, and here’s a look inside

Peanuts Hotel

Everyone who remembers Charles M. Schulz’s “Peanuts” comic strips or the beloved cartoon specials knows the lovable “Peanuts” gang.

The prolific Schulz drew nearly 18,000 “Peanuts” strips and a total of 45 “Peanuts” television specials were created — that’s a lot of output!

Now fans of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy and the others can take their love for the iconic comic to a new level by staying in the recently-opened Peanuts Hotel in Kobe, Japan.

Peanuts Hotel

The Peanuts Hotel opened Aug. 1, and it offers 18 rooms, a Peanuts Cafe and a Peanuts Diner. Each of the boutique hotel’s three floors has its own theme of “Imagine,” “Happy” and “Love.” The first-of-its-kind hotel takes its concept from the comic strip scene where Snoopy’s home is visited by small birds who join him in a nap atop his dog house. The scene ends with Snoopy commenting, “It’s nice to have a home where your guests feel comfortable.”

Here are a few images of Special Room 61, which is the nicest of all the rooms:

Of course, Snoopy plays a prominent role in the decor:

This room even features a lush terrace:

“The unique and profound comics of ‘Peanuts’ drawn by the author Charles M. Schulz where friendship, love, philosophy of life, etc. abound offer a world in which everyone from children to adults alike can identify with,” according to a press release. “It is a casual and friendly designer hotel that transcends time and generations, and where guests can feel the roots of Peanuts, where a community and connections with a variety of guests can be built, and where the hearts of people staying and meeting in ‘Peanuts Hotel’ will be warmed.”

Let’s take a look at some of the cutest rooms in this property.

Room 64 is themed “Happiness is a warm puppy” and is entirely designed in the color millennial pink. Even the fireplace, chairs and bathroom are pink!

The vibrant walls and artwork really add to the theme:

Room 41 is themed “It Was A Dark And Stormy Night,” which is a reference to how Snoopy usually began novels — written via typewriter atop his dog house — with this ominous phrase:

Vintage typewriters drive home the motif in this stylish room:

Doesn’t the Peanuts Hotel look cute? Reservations are open now, and room rates start at 30,000 yen or about $267 per night, excluding tax.
