After waiting for several weeks, the Snoopy Museum Tokyo finally opened last April 23 in Roppongi! I tried to get tickets to the opening day, but when I went to Lawson to buy – it was sold out! I got the next possible date, which was May 1!
Let me tell you about my day in the best way:
Through writing and through pictures!
So, as seen in the picture – Pam and I went to the Snoopy Museum together! (I’m so happy that I found someone who’s just as crazy with Peanuts / Snoopy as I am.) Winona also came with us, but she didn’t go in the museum. Instead, she explored Roppongi.
There were so many people; so much, that they had a separate room just for waiting / holding people in!
After waiting for about twenty minutes, Pam and I got our tickets and was able to go inside the first room!
I was immediately blown away by this:
Do you see something? 😉
We moved on to the next room, which was a viewing room. I didn’t get to take photos since they showed us a video!
Moving on to the next room —
They also had this sort of “cheese wall” where when you peek in the holes, you see treats like this:
I was not able to take photos of a huge chunk of the museum because photo-taking was not allowed.
That is the last thing you will see in the exhibitions because after that is the Brown Store (the museum store)!
So this was me:
First time going around -> I shove items in my basket right away.
Second time going around -> I returned some items and got different items.
Third time going around -> I was mentally calculating how much the contents of my basket would cost.
Fourth time going around -> I returned a lot of items with a mental question, “Can I use this? Do I really need it? Will this last a lifetime? (Yes).”
Fifth time going around -> I finalize my basket and compute for the total in the corner.
Sixth time going around -> I say “goodbye” sadly to the other items I return.
After making several rounds, I finally paid for my things and headed for the Blanket Cafè with Pam! The line was so long and the Blanket Cafè accepts people on a lottery; meaning you roll a device (sort of like bingo) – if you get a white ball, it means that you can’t go in the cafè. If you get a colored ball, it means “welcome to the Blanket Cafè!”.
I nervously turned the devices and came up with a…blue ball! YES! We got in!
I asked for the English menu and these were the selections:
(Sorry for the blurred photos – I was in a hurry to order hehe!)
This is what Pam ordered:
This is what I ordered:
I got the “My Favorite Peanuts” dish combo! (And yes, it’s served inside a dog dish.) According to the menu, this dish had:
– grilled chicken strips with peanut butter and garlic sauce
– wheat germ bread
– carrot rappes
– camembert cheese
The dish also came with a side of fries, two small corndogs, and a drink of your choice!
(I chose milk tea!)
After eating, Pam needed to use the restroom when I noticed this!
I waited for Pam outside the museum.
Before we left, we took some more photos!
We left the museum with our hearts feeling as if we got hugged by Snoopy.
This are all the things I bought! HEHE.
In short, the whole visit made me a very happy kid.
