How to Get Tickets for Ghibli Museum in Mitaka

Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Do you know what Studio Ghibli is? How about My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess of Mononoke? These are all masterpieces by Studio Ghibli (to be specific mostly by Hayao Miyazaki). I suppose it wouldn’t be too much to say like it has become a Japanese Disney. This time I am going to share how to get tickets for Ghibli Museum.


About Ghibli Museum

Studio Ghibli opened Ghibli Museum in Mitaka (Tokyo) in 2001. This place displays materials from all Ghibli films, and also visitors can enter a small theater inside it and watch a short film. (Check the official website what’s showing now) . Unfortunately, camera is strictly prohibited inside the building, so I’ve got just a few photos taken outside. Hope you could see how it is like.
