SNOOPY is coming to town! By “town”, we mean if you’re anywhere in Japan or if you’re planning a trip to Japan.

Famed for being the “land of cute things”, the upcoming Peanuts comic strip-themed hotel will be yet another adorable addition to the country’s attractions.

Set to open in Hyogo prefecture near Sannomiya Station located in the heart of Kobe, the hotel spans six floors of rooms and facilities.

It embodies its motto, “It’s nice to have a home where your guests feel comfortable”.

Guests would be delighted to know that they will be getting a Peanuts Cafe (first floor), a Peanuts Diner (third floor), and three upper floors of guest rooms themed, “Imagine”, “Love”, and “Happy”.

The hotel’s Peanuts Cafe offers the same menu as the Peanut Cafe in Tokyo’s Nakameguro neighborhood, filled to the brim with casual Snoopy-themed food and drinks that are totally Instagrammable.

Peanuts Diner, on the other hand, will serve a slightly more adult menu, complete with pasta and Japanese specialties such as Kobe beef.

And what’s a Peanuts hotel experience if there’s no merchandise?

Peanuts Cafe and Peanuts Diner will also sell Snoopy-themed goods such as T-shirts, tote bags, printed serviettes, and mugs, so you can take a piece of Peanuts hotel home with you.

More importantly, be ready to be overwhelmed by the sheer cuteness of the guest rooms.

Each of the 18 rooms will boast its own design and decorations based on different comics from the Charles M. Schulz franchise.

So don’t forget to whip out your camera and snap away.

Interested? Reservations will start from 10am on July 9, 2018.

The Peanuts hotel will open in Kobe, Japan in August 2018.
