Meet your guide in central Tokyo near Shinjuku Station to start your tour to the Ghibli Museum. Accompanied by your guide, travel by local train and bus from Tokyo to the suburb of Mitaka, where the museum stands on a 4,000-acre (1,618-hectare) site in Inokashira Park.

When you arrive, enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of the museum, during which you’ll learn a bit about the history of Studio Ghibli, the famous Japanese animation film studio that has produced acclaimed works like the Academy Award–winning film Spirited Away.

After your tour, you have another 45 minutes to explore the museum on your own. See various exhibits that describe the animation process, take your kids to the play space, or watch a short film by anime director Hayao Miyazaki. Your children will delight in the fun way that Ghibli characters are featured throughout the museum.

Visit the gift shop or restaurant for souvenirs or food, if you wish (own expense), before leaving with your guide to head back to Tokyo by train. Your tour ends when you return to Shinjuku Station.

The museum is small and can get crowded but worth it if you love animation. Our guide was great, her knowledge of the museum made to trip more meaningful with her simple and informative presentation. We had plenty of time to explore on our own, shop, and eat. Her care in making sure our group got to and from the museum and back was great. Take the tour.
