(SPOT.ph) Whether or not you've seen an actual comic strip of Charles M. Schulz' Peanuts, it's close to impossible for you to not be familiar with the black-and-white beagle Snoopy. The story, after all, ran from 1950 to 2000, making it "arguably the longest story ever told by one human being," according to Syracuse University professor Robert Thompson. It’s been immortalized in TV specials, movies, books, and even memes. Now, kids from the Peanuts gang come to life once again through Kobe, Japan's newest place to stay, Peanuts Hotel, which opened on August 1.

The Peanuts Hotel has a café, a diner, and 18 private rooms.

The Snoopy-themed hotel takes its concept from a scene in one of the episodes of Schulz' comic where Snoopy's bird friends doze off on the roof of his doghouse. "It's nice to have a home where your guests feel comfortable," the beagle's thought balloon says. This phrase is now the slogan of the six-storey hotel with 18 private rooms, each uniquely designed to showcase a different comic.
