10.July.2019 | FOOD / SPOT

Tokyo Skytree is set to hold an event titled FIRST BEAGLE IN SKYTREE® from July 18 to October 14 in collaboration with the astronaut version of Snoopy which appeared in the original comic 50 years ago in March this year.

 

Strap on your space suits and get ready to head up the tallest tower in the world as its top floor, the Tembo Galleria―towering at 450 meters high―is transformed into a Snoopy space station. Learn about outer space with Snoopy and his friends, dine on food and drink themed on everybody’s favourite beagle, and more.

Join snoopy as he makes his galactic debut as the first beagle in space. As you step into Shuttle 2 (the elevator) head up into the stars, you and your fellow astronauts will glimpse pictures an decorations taken from the Astronaut Snoopy graphic novel. While you watch the number of meters rolling up on the monitor as you soar higher and higher, you can rest assured the excitement of stepping out will surge simultaneously.

 

You’ve made it. You step out of the elevator into the Skytree Space Station where Snoopy and the gang will be ready to meet you. Be sure to snap a commemorative photo with them with the spacey background on the windows so you never forget this day. Once that’s all done it’s time to start your astronaut mission.

Continue up a further 110 meters to reach the peak of the Tembo Galleria and gaze at the wall decorations all along which celebrate Astronaut Snoopy’s 50th anniversary with commentary. There’s plenty of great opportunities for photos here too.

After learning about space, it’s time to experience space yourself! Step into this area and take a photo that looks like you’re floating in space with Snoopy. Nearby there are also boards with various commentaries on them regarding JAXA’s work including the Akatsuki space probe, the Hayabusa2 asteroid explorer, astronaut gear for outside the space shuttle, sokol suits, space stations, and more.

It’s finally time to depart for space exploration. At the space station’s highest point (451.2m) you will find a special spaceship photo spot with beautiful illuminated half-globes and an illustration of the door to space behind you. Depart into the starry expanse with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and all the other characters of Peanuts.

Every astronaut needs a good meal to keep them going. Head back down to the SKYTREE CAFE on the Tembo Deck on floor 340F and enjoy a selection of themed desserts, drinks and more. You’ll even get a free gift! Look forward to the Planet Bagel filled with avocado and basil, a Moon Surface Tiramisu, the Iced Charlie Brown Whipped Cream & Caramel Latte, and more.

 

Expect to sift through all the exclusive merchandise they’ll have on offer too. All of this is available for a limited time only, so don’t miss this chance to celebrate Snoopy as the FIRST BEAGLE IN SKYTREE®.

  • Check out the new Snoopy museum logo and image!

    12.April.2019 | SPOT

    In Autumn 2019, the Snoopy Museum will relocate to Grandberry Park, Minami Machida. The museum, which once stood in Roppongi, will be twice the size and come with a new logo and upgraded image.

    Head of Cozfish Shin Sobue created the logo and image design for the Roppongi Snoopy Museum and is now in charge of the design and logo for the new museum. In contrast to the Roppongi logo design, which was minimalistic to represent the museum’s metropolitan surroundings, the new logo reflects the image of a park and fun picnic memories. There is particular emphasis on the letters SMT in this new logo design. There are plans to place the logo on the museum wall nearest to the park. A model of the new museum will make its debut appearance at the Snoopy Museum exhibition to be held in Osaka from 13th April.

    The Snoopy Museum will have many similarities with the Schulz Museum in California. The Snoopy Museum will be home to many fascinating and precious original storyboards and materials, and will even have permanent exhibits as well as personal workshop rooms. You can also obtain original goods that you cannot find anywhere else. Visitors are also invited to stop by the cafe in the adjoining annexe. The museum’s location is surrounded by greenery, and it is here that a wide range of activities will take place to entertain visitors. A brand new type of museum is soon to be born.

     The exhibition that took place five times in the Roppongi Snoopy Museum has been condensed down to be held in Nagoya and Osaka. Here, you can catch original drawings and sketches and purchase from the selection of 200 carefully chosen vintage goods. The most popular original goods are also making a comeback!

     

     If you’re a Snoopy fan who missed the opportunity to catch the exhibitions held at Roppongi, there’s now a chance to enjoy Snoopy at the new Snoopy Museum!

  • PEANUTS Café and PEANUTS DINER to run Nostalgic Flying Ace Fair

    05.September.2019 | FASHION / FOOD

    The PEANUTS Cafe and PEANUTS DINER located in Nakameguro, Yokohama and Kobe will be holding a nostalgic Snoopy Flying Ace Fair from September 4th at all branches.

     

    The first time this fair was held, Snoopy dressed as an Astronaut. As this is the second time the fair will be held, Snoopy will be present at all PEANUTS Cafes and PEANUTS DINERs in a different costume. This time, his costume is themed around the series Flying Ace. Pilot Snoopy will be soaring into the scene fully equipped in his Flying Ace gear, steering his red doghouse to battle his rival the Red Baron as he did in those nostalgic daydreams. 

     

    During the fair period, there will be a whole new menu of drinks and original merchandise themed around Snoopy’s classic look where he is wearing his Flying Ace aviator hat and red scarf.

    Flying Ace Green Tea Latte: ¥700 before tax (eat in) Comes with a limited original drinks coaster

    Take out: ¥600 (after tax) 

    The colour of the green tea takes on the image of Snoopy’s green helmet. The sweetness and bitterness of the flavours perfectly balance out. The strawberry syrup adds a tangy accent of flavour. The vibrant colour creates the imagery of Snoopy’s red scarf fluttering in the breeze. The drink is topped with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream and is studded with cocoa cookie bullets penetrating through its deliciously creamy surface. If you love sweet drinks, then come taste the flavour of Snoopy’s adventurous daydream.

     

    * The limited original coaster is only given to those who order to eat in.

    * As there are a limited number of these coasters, there is a possibility that they will run out before the end of the fair period.

    Original Flying Ace Eco Tote Bag (green/orange):¥1,500 (before tax)

    The PEANUTS Cafe in Meguro has also released a limited edition Flying Ace version of their popular Original Eco Tote Bag. This bag is available in the two fair colours: green and orange. This A4-sized bag is the perfect size for multiple uses. It can be folded and stored inside your main bag as a sub bag or even used as your main bag.

    If you are a Snoopy fan, make sure to stop by!

  • Snoopy, Joe Cool & Charlie Brown Confections by Tabemas Are Coming to Lawson Convenience Stores

    08.August.2019 | FOOD

    Character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas has unveiled its new Snoopy, Joe Cool and Charlie Brown wagashi confections that will go on sale at Lawson convenience stores across Japan on August 20.

    The characters are made from a type of dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets. Each of their charm points have been recreated, including Snoopy’s collar, Joe Cool’s shades and folded arm pose, and Charlie Brown’s instantly-recognisable outfit.

    Their cute designs make it hard to decide where to start eating from, with Snoopy’s beady eyes, Joe Cool’s composed manner, and Charlie Brown’s smiley face.

    Each character is filled with different flavoured bean pastes, maintaining that traditional wagashi touch. Snoopy is chocolate flavoured, Joe Cool is salted vanilla, and Charlie Brown is custard. The three of them line up perfectly for a cute Instagrammable photo. They are limited in stock so if you’re in Japan this summer be sure to stop by a Lawson store.
