I'll say right up front I hadn't heard of Studio Ghibli but knew some of their work. My daughter is an animation fan and was really keen to go. We fronted up on a warm Sept morning - a decent line out the front moved...More

The museum is located about 30-45 min away from downtown Tokyo by train, and you have to buy tickets ahead of time, but all that effort is worth it. Museum is not huge but all the details inside you just love them. There is a...More

No English translations of any of the explanations, only a minimal English version of the map. And no cameras means you can't even use your phone for Google Translate. The Agency that sold us tickets should have warned us about this. While I had seen...More

not only for children, but also for former ones - and Miyazaki has a level anyway that is not for them. It is less a museum than a one-house theme-park, but it is as close as you can come to the Ghibli universe (primarily, but...More
