Love Love Snoopy Exhibition

A special Snoopy exhibition is coming to the Kadokawa Culture Museum in Tokorozawa Sakura Town this spring. The Love Love Snoopy, Take Care with Peanuts starts on February 11th 2023 at the EJ Anime Museum on the 3rd floor of the Kadokawa Culture Museum*. Interestingly, the Kadokawa Museum does not yet have the information for this event on their website. But the EJ Anime Museum now has its own website with all the details. Love Love Snoopy follows the highly successful Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N which ended today, January 29th 2023. Tickets are already on sale; see the information section at the bottom of the post for links.

*Kadokawa Culture Museum is also called Kadcul for short or Kadokawa Musashino Museum.

Love Love Snoopy

This “love” themed travelling Snoopy exhibition comes to Kadokawa Museum at the perfect time – just before Valentine’s Day. There are three concepts to the love theme, I interpret it as love yourself, love each other and love the earth. But the official English for the event is; take care of yourself, take care of each other and take care of the earth. Each of the three concepts are represented with at least one exhibit of Snoopy and Friends.

Highlights of Love Love Snoopy

Tree of Kindness

After the three concept areas there is a “tree of kindness”. You can write messages, Valentine wishes if you like, on heart shaped paper and stick them to the tree. At the end of the tour, you will find a “heartful” market where they sell literally thousands of Snoopy goods. Many of the limited edition goods for the exhibition have hearts on them, making them ideal memorabilia or gifts for Valentines day.

      I might try and go to it with the kids. Still a bit nervous bringing them to indoor locations, but we’ve got to start “living” with Covid at some point!
