Peter Rabbit Lodgings in Japan

      No Comments on Peter Rabbit Lodgings in Japan

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.

Tokinosumika have a number of different lodgings including the Peter Rabbit houses in their “Slow House Villa” section, with great views of Mt. Fuji.

      I want to stay there too! This past visit we stayed in the neighbouring “blueberry lodge”. Next time, it’ll be the Peter Rabbit houses! The interiors have Peter Rabbit decor too. 🙂

    I had no idea there were Peter Rabbit themed locations anywhere. Very cute houses (and well-located for tourists too, by the looks).

    I would love to go back to Japan and explore that region further – I feel like there’s a lot of countryside and farmland the kids would really enjoy.

      There is really so much to do and see in Japan. I have a list as long as my leg of places I want to go. It will take years to go to them all. 🙂 I like this area of Japan though, because of the views of Fuji with lots of outdoor activities.

        Yes, it’s definitely very “dense” in terms of sightseeing and attractions. I think I threw up my hands at one point and said, “How can we move to Japan? We’re going to have to move there if we want to so much as scratch the surface.”

        Nice to see another post from you, too. 🙂

            Thanks Bronwyn. Well, not a crises as such, but the worst morning sickness ever! 16 weeks atm. This is the first week since week 4 that I haven’t had to sleep 12+ hours a day and have felt “well” for more than a couple of days in a row! Long may it last 🙂

            😀 N.E.V.E.R!!! … well, at least not until they are older. Thank you for the congrats, I’ve kept it under wraps – mainly because I haven’t really been on the Internet to declare it. 🙂 It is weird to say now that I am out the other side… but all I could do on a daily basis was manage the kids and basic housework. 😛
