Tokyo Studio Ghibli Museum Afternoon Tour
Reviewed by: Audrey a, January 2016
We had tried to book from Australia, however found this online when we arrived in Tokyo on the Friday.
We paid and were confirmed within 24 hours for Mon the 11th of Jan. We had a great Tour Guide who met us at the location Hotel near Shinjuku. She gave us info and then helped us board the bus to Mitaka where the Museum is.
During the bus trip she explained about the vision for the museum, and that we were to experience this for ourselves and we should not have her provide us with all the information. She also after her briefing on the museum, came by to see how we were going to make our way back. Providing us with bus or train options.
For a non Ghibli buff....it was extraordinary to view the animation see Totoro, and the 10mins of animation. See how Animation was made, and walk around absorbed in this medium. My son loved it.
We did our tour at 4.00 and managed to finish around 6.00 to grab the bus out the front to head to the Mitaka Station to head back to Shinjuku.
I enjoyed it and here are some of our pictures

Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. The museum itself looks and feels like something right out of one of their films. Even for non-fans of their films the museum provided great insight into the animation process and there was plenty to see. Our tour guide was excellent, spoke very good English and the instructions were very clear and concise. We made it to the museum and back with zero issues. Make sure you book months in advance! This attraction very quickly sells out and we were barely able to make it.

Had a great time at the Museum. The guide was very knowledgeable on all things Ghibli, as well as other random tid bits of information that was fun to know. Our guide was great, and the tour experience was fun.

Easy, convenient meeting location. The tour guide Hiromi was great. Easily navigated the whole group to and from the museum, and provided great explanations about the exhibits we were going to see. Would highly recommend this tour for fans of Ghibli.

If you don't understand written Japanese, I'd highly recommend this tour. The guide is friendly and will happily answer questions and of course, the museum is a must-see for any fan!
