  • Charles M. Schultz's Peanuts is a comic strip loved the world over, and Japan is no exception.

  • While everyone here knows the stories of good old Charlie Brown, his loyal beagle dog, Snoopy, is the real star.

  • So much so that the world's very first Snoopy museum, originally located in Roppongi has reopened bigger and better.

  • And it's an absolute must if you consider yourself a Peanuts' fan.

  • The new Snoopy museum has moved to the edge of Tokyo in Machida at Minami-Machida Grandberry Park Station.

  • It's about 34 minutes from Shibuya on the Tokyo Den-en-toshi Line.

  • Grandberry Park is a large shopping center with a lot to see and do.

  • It's real easy to get distracted while on your way to the museum.

  • But just follow the Snoopys, and you should find your way.

  • Admission into the museum is 2000 yen for adults and 600 yen for children four years or older.

  • However, we strongly recommend that you purchase advance tickets through Eplus on the museum's official website.

  • It saves you 200 yen and guarantees you entry.

  • The museum is popular and can get really crowded, especially on weekends and holidays.

  • The Snoopy Museum is a contemporary three-floor building.

  • In the Charles Schultz Room, you hear from the man himself through rare recordings and interviews as he details the creation process, his inspirations and connections with the characters.

  • Schultz ingrained themes in the Peanuts such faith, race and existentialism.

  • And it's a real treat to see the amount of love and care that went into something that many of us grew up with and learned from.

  • And of course there's Snoopy.

  • Probably the museum's main attraction is the Snoopy Room, which features several large statues of the character in various poses that you can imitate and photograph.

  • And while that isn't all to see, we don't want to give away too much.

  • We want you to check it out for yourself.

  • As to be expected there is a gift shop, but don't expect to find too much cheapo swag here besides postcards and stationery.

  • Lastly, if you're looking to top off your day at the Snoopy Museum, then you'll want to stop by the official Peanuts Cafe next door.

  • Normally themed cafes at restaurants serve average dishes at best just with jacked up prices and shaped like Mickey Mouse or something.

  • But the Peanuts Cafe is surprisingly really good.

  • It's a bit pricey but you could do a lot worse.
