Step into my childhood
Mar. 2020
They wouldn’t let me mark earlier, but I actually went in fall of 2017. No photography allowed, which almost made the experience more special. There’s Ghibli themed food, and inside looks into the making of some of his films. I bought a lot from the gift store!

Phenomenal place
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Bought tickets online and transport there was extremely easy. Their lining up system was relaxed and organised too. This is really money well spent for both adults and children! I would revisit again the next time I’m in town. You won’t be disappointed

Let Your Inner Child Free
Sep. 2019
See and collect some of your favorite Ghibli creations/characters.

Caution: No photography within the museum. You can buy sets of post cards and photobooks

Let your inner-child out to enjoy a small featurette, explore the building and see the various Ghibli creations.

Showcase of Hayao Miyazaki
Dec. 2019 • Family
A must-go place if you are a fans of Hayao Miyazaki. The museum is actually a showcase of the work by the great Japanese animator. There are replicas of his studios and detailed descriptions of the movies he has created. Visitors should take note that photo-taking is prohibited inside the museum.

My children love this place. It is a must place to visit if you are in Tokyo. Just make sure to buy the ticket online first before you come. It's sold out almost immediately when the ticket is open for sale online.

It’s totally worth a visit
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Tickets of Ghibli Museum must be bought in advance online, the system is open at 10:00am Japan time on every 10th for the following month’s tickets.

It is super popular with a reasonable price that it’s not easy to get, so make sure to be well prepared online before 10:00am Japan time.

Photos are not allowed inside the museum but outside and it’s totally worth a visit if you are a fan of Studio Ghibli.

Be ready to spend a lot of money for the adorable souvenir in their gift shop.

Great spot for fans - but be aware no English translations or recorded guide
Dec. 2019
I love Studio Ghibli, as do my children. This was one of the places we most wanted to go on our trip to Japan. It was great to see everything - but no information was in English and there was no recorded tour guide, so we were unable to read or understand anything.

Must Visit for Ghibli Lovers
Mar. 2019
One word... Awesome! It really is a must visit, if you're in Tokyo. Small, not like Disney, but hey, it's Ghibli! Buy your tickets online. It's the one advice I can give you, but really, visit the place. It. Is. A . Must.
