How to Get Tickets for Ghibli Museum in Mitaka

how to get tickets for ghibli museum

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.

Starbucks Concept Store in Ueno Park

Yo, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. This time I will take you to a Starbucks Concept Store in Ueno, Tokyo. The Starbucks Concept Stores are built with special designs for each location. One that Ren (Mrs. Wada) has shared before may give you an idea of what I am talking about. Check it out for starters.

Starbucks Concept Store in Ueno

The store is located in the middle of Ueno Park. Looks quite different from the one in Kobe and its cool design fits in the park, don’t you think? It was a saver on a hot day! Well, it’s got the same menu but with different surroundings it would give fresh air.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take photos of inside it as it was jam-packed! You may experience it during the holiday or weekends. Note that. However, I recommend to take an outdoor seat for enjoying the beautiful view and chill out.

Walk Around Ueno Park

Since the store is in Ueno Park, it would be nice walking around. This is known as a huge public park with numbers of museums such as the Tokyo National Museum, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, etc. There are also temples and even a zoo! It could take you more than a day to check all in the park. The park gets full of people in spring for hanami (sakura watching).
