I'm not even a huge fan and it was fun to do. Very short, tour only 30 minutes. Used voyagin to purchase tickets in tokyo. No issues at all. Nice gift shops. All totorro gear always expensive, these decently priced

Totoro fans make this pilgrimage regularly, and the visit really is worth the trip. The designers planned so many details perfectly. We just learned that Studio Ghibli plans a full theme park there in 2020, so we will need to go back! At the time...More

Hi, there are no tickets needed in advance but you should check the opening hours on their website because it's changing with the season! You can get the tickets once you are there.
