There are a number of beloved characters in Japan which are made by Japanese artists. You have Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Pikachu, and a whole lot more. But just because there are so many popular characters that the Japanese love, doesn’t mean that they are not interested in popular characters from other countries too.
One popular foreign character has made its way to Japan and just opened its first official satellite museum. The Snoopy Museum is now open so make sure to head down there if you’re a big fan!
On April 23rd, the first satellite Snoopy Museum opened in Roppongi. Visitors to the museum can get to enjoy a variety of original cartoons from the collection of the Charles M. Schulz museum. Snoopy and other characters will be featured, and the museum will also be introducing new exhibitions every six months.
Featuring 60 of Charles M. Schulz’s original Peanuts cartoons, My Favorite Peanuts is the opening exhibition of the Snoopy Museum which was personally selected by Jean Schulz, Charles’ wife. The opening exhibition will run until September 25th and is open all days of the week.
