The children's picture book "Peter Rabbit's Story" was originally published back in 1902, and will celebrate its 120th anniversary next year. In honor of this, the Shizuoka City Museum of Art will host a special exhibition under the theme of a grand birthday party for Peter Rabbit from September 15th until November 6th 2022.

Approximately 170 items will be on display at the event, including original sketches, private editions and drafts of the book, and more.

Ticket prices for the event have not yet been determined, however they should be posted on the official website closer to the commencement date.

Getting there

The Shizuoka City Museum of Art is located approximately 3 minutes on foot from the north exit of JR Shizuoka Station, or 5 minutes walk from the Shin-Shizuoka Station on the Shizuoka Railway.

For those who plan to drive to the museum, it's located around 15 minutes from the Tomei Expressway's Shizuoka IC. There is no dedicated parking lot for the museum, but there are several paid lots in the surrounding area. Details about parking lot options can be found on the official museum website.
