Full description
Head to Tokyo's western suburbs of Mitaka and find the one-of-a-kind Ghibli Museum. Find out why this museum/theme park is often referred to as 'Japan's Disney' and is a fantastic and whimsical museum dedicated to the legendary Studio Ghibli film studio. Co-founded by director Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli is behind some of Japan's most beloved animated films, such as 'My Neighbor Totoro', 'Princess Mononoke', and 'Spirited Away'. 

Arrive at the museum and exchange your GYG voucher for an official ticket. Benefit from a personal walk-in service to the museum, and begin to explore the many exhibits. Start at the sculpture of a robot from Castle in the Sky then head over to the stone monument where the words of the character Laputa are engraved. Next, cross over to the seasonal exhibition room, which focuses on specific works of art and see numerous storyboards from the films in the permanent exhibition room.

After this, step inside the Cat-bus room where children can play freely. Alternatively, explore the library reading room with all books available for purchase. Don't miss the video exhibition room where seasonal anime works have been screened. Marvel at the Ghibli characters drawn on the entire ceiling of the entrance hall and the Totoro counter. End your tour with a refreshment in the Mugiwara Bousi Café and pick up some souvenirs from your experience in the gift shop.
