Immerse in Ghibli Magic: From Secured Slot to Whimsical Exploration

Ensuring a smooth experience, an escort will greet you at Mitaka Station, from where you'll hop on a bus to the Ghibli Museum. Your secured ticket not only grants entry into this fantasy castle but also offers a 1.5-hour tour led by an English-speaking guide. Inside the museum, it feels as though you've stepped into a living, breathing Ghibli film. Wander the labyrinthine museum, uncovering the methods of Hayao Miyazaki's creation process, from sketches and storyboards to models and interactive displays.

Unforgettable Ghibli Highlights: Exclusive Films & Lifelike Replicas

Visit the Cat Bus Room, a treat, especially for children, and interact with a life-size replica from My Neighbor Totoro. Don't miss the 5-meter tall Robot Soldier, from Castle in the Sky, who silently guards the museum from the rooftop garden. Join the special exhibitions that change periodically, each focused on a unique aspect or film of Studio Ghibli. Enjoy original short films by Studio Ghibli, exclusive to the museum at Saturn Theatre located in the basement.
