There are lots of themed museums, parks, restaurants and hotels throughout Japan. Some are more famous than others, such as Disney Land and Sea in Chiba or Universal Studios in Osaka. However, it is not unusual to discover that an unexpected character has a place and a following somewhere in Japan. Previously, I have written about the Moomin themed park in Hanno, Saitama and the Moomin cafe and Bakery in Tokyo Dome City. Another surprising find a few years ago was a Peter Rabbit area (Beatrix Potter Reading Library, Peter Rabbit Gift shop and playground) in Saitama Children’s Zoo (Takasaka). Shortly after that discovery I stayed in a resort with Peter Rabbit lodgings in it. I recently revisited that resort and got a few quick photos of the lodgings while playing with the kids in the playground beside the lodgings.
Since writing this article, we have since stayed in the resort. Full information here:
Peter Rabbit Houses, Tokinosumika Resort, Gotemba, Shizuoka
Tokinosumika have a number of different lodgings including the Peter Rabbit houses in their “Slow House Villa” section, with great views of Mt. Fuji.
Do you know of any other Peter Rabbit themed locations in Japan?
