The original illustrations of Charles Schulz on display are chosen from amongst the best; there are over 60 illustrations on display. You will be fascinated to learn that the original illustrations were obtained from a personal collection held none other than by Jean Schulz – wife of illustrious Charles Schulz. Some of the classic illustrations include drawings done by Charles for Jean on Valentine's Day; these adorned the couple's bedroom walls until being given to the museum for display. Just in case you are hankering for an excuse to re-visit the museum, remember that the displays change every 6 months!

We all identify 'Sparky' as a comic illustrator, but he was much more than this. Charles Schulz was an avid bookworm and collector of classic comics. You will be able to see why this deduction is made from the collection of 'Sparky's' comic books collection and illustrations that inspired him, all on display at the museum. Best of all; on display are illustrations done by Charles when he was a lad of 14, as gifts to friends and family. Remember the best way to explore a vibrant and vast city like Tokyo is by booking Tokyo service apartments; the newest rage amongst the contemporary tourist these apartment hotels offer you the freedom of home with modern kitchens, spacious bedrooms and entertainment consoles together with the comforts and amenities of a conventional hotel. Beautiful Shiba Park close to the Somerset Azabu East Tokyo is a fabulous place to base yourself at; it is in the Minato Ku District just 3 minutes from the subway station.
