Beatrix Potter first created the character “Peter Rabbit” in 1893 in a picture post card sent to a five year old child, and later wrote the children’s story “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”. The story depicts the playful lead character Peter Rabbit playing in gardens in the picturesque countryside of England, and is still read around the world even today over 100 years after its original publication.
“The Tale of Peter Rabbit” is also said to be recognized by nearly 100% of Japanese women over the age of 45 years. The “Peter Rabbit™ Hotel Carnival” event is one of a series of special events designed to commemorate famous stories such as “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” “The Little Mermaid” and others hosted by the Keio Plaza Hotel in recent years, and is part of the Hotel’s policy of providing unique experience to its guests.
