If you’ve ever visited Saitama’s Moominvalley Park, and wished you didn’t have to leave, consider spending the night at one of the park’s official hotels, one of which has been given a fairytale makeover.
Just a 30-minute drive from the theme park, Oku-Musashi Kyukamura hotel has unveiled its new Moomin Special Room. The furniture in this cosy room is decked out in nothing but Moomin from the bed covers and cushions to the rug, and there are plenty of adorable plushies to cuddle up with.
You’ll forget you’re in Japan when you look out over the beautiful green landscape from the balcony. Make sure to rent one of the hotel’s yukata when you lounge around – they’re printed with adorable Moomintrolls too.
All guests receive freebies like slippers, a hair brush, a hand towel and a tote bag printed with the logo of the theme park. One night in the Moomin Special Room starts at ¥22,000 per person, which includes breakfast, dinner, a discount coupon for the theme park and even the chance to buy some exclusive Moomin merchandise at the park. The hotel also offers a complimentary ride to and from Moominvalley Park at designated times during the day.
When you visit Moominvalley Park, make sure to stop by the beautiful Umbrella Sky, with 200 colourful umbrellas suspended over a 1,200m path. The multi-coloured umbrellas are out until August 29.
