  • Dating back to last month's 10 days. The battle had already begun. Booking into the morning, tapping the Smartphone just 10. Takes aim at 10:00 on Sunday, indeed will try very soon. Okay, I haven't sold out yet! I thought I could book tickets for few months. Oh, I subscribe to Locke, what was needed. It's thought it fine without having to register as a member and did not register low Lawson literacy I. Fools and! Knew that future unwanted newsletter will come, but I can't change back to belly. Right off the bat and register as a member, was to resume ticket reservation. Oh, 10:00 12 when units are sold out. At this time, just 7 minutes from the reservation. Seriously??? Walls, no real standing in the forest. Hard. I tried quitting many times to fight. Or the 16:00 tickets with. & immigration. This is what the bit must not forget the historical fact that went three times about buying complete brink, but probably due to over-subscription, suddenly the ticket is selected, now screen is displayed. When it comes, the day. 16 at the front and a large matrix. In the great war. The fear that their experience means something, that ticket scramble and came around. To show identity cards and tickets, get inside. * * * * * * BI. That drink from coming into the body, do not drink. This is the taste of victory, but view irrelevant. Look, look. What do the spoiler in this Museum? Fun. But I would feel narrow. No longer is writing but so far, no spoilers. Come here, like lack of OCI literacy. Again, and pain to end. Look for the time being, "says. You've been doing? What I think is best in show.

  • The house is beautiful and presentations are engaging. Would be better if they have more interactive display, offer theme food and more items in their store. May i suggest a cat bus for adults as well...  more »
  • Not what we expected. The short film was excellent. This really is a museum in the traditional sense, so not so exciting for kids I think, though they have tried in places. The mark nearby in Mitaka i...  more »

  • Uh...WOW! Amazing place. I can't put it into words how beautiful and fun this place is. The free short film, with the free gift of a frame from the film, who does that? Loved every minute. This was our sons dream come true. The displays are simply magical. The entire building is like a maze of discovery. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Only down side is the pricing in the gift shop, but, a lot of the items are available only there. Make sure to follow the instructions to book your tickets. The travel agency where we picked ours up from was a bit of a challenge to find lol. Be early and enjoy.
  • This place is great. A lot to see. the gift store is pretty good but most of the stuff there you can buy in other places. they have a restaurant that opens at 11AM. Photography is not allowed inside the building but its allowed anywhere outside, including the garden on the roof. there is a park nearby if you want to walk around after being done with the museum.
  • A must visit if for fans of Ghibli Films, but really it is a great visit for anyone that can appreciate arts and animation. There is lots to see and do, especially for little ones. On top of it all there is a very quaint restaurant called Straw Hat's and they serve very good food and deserts and it is totally worthwhile to visit while here. The Museum is also located in a big park, with lots of green space and things to see, a very wonderful setting. The only bad thing would be getting tickets, as the tickets are hard to obtain as they tend to sellout. So plan ahead and try to order them early!
  • If you love Ghibli, then this is a good museum. Tickets are hard to come by and must be purchased way in advance, but the base price of around ¥1000 is reasonable. Everything is in Japanese however, so if you are interested in the behind-the-scenes aspects and can't read Japanese, you might want to reconsider going. Also, the store is quite small (you can find more selection from Ghibli stores located around Japan). But overall a fun experience, especially the short movie. I recommend coming early when the museum is less crowded. Also expect lots of stair climbing.
  • An absolute delight for fans of Studio Ghibli, no matter their age. Fun for kids, fun for parents, fun for couples. Whimsical exhibits from Ghibli's many beloved films, a great restaurant/cafe, stocked bookstore and expansive (but pricey) gift shop. The highlight is the movie theater, where they screen original Ghibli short films that you can't see anywhere else! These are pure joy. Today was our second time in two years and we will go again a couple weeks from now. Make sure that you purchase tickets in advance, bring your passport as instructed to verify your identity, and refrain from taking photos inside the museum.
