Ghibli Museum

I had vague memories of my visit to the Ghibli Museum 7 years ago; I went for work and I think I didn’t really enjoy my time there. Last week I had the opportunity to visit it again, without rushing, enjoying every corner like if we were children. I loved it, it made me forget that I was in Tokyo, it felt like some kind of travel to the universe of Ghibli animation movies.

Here you have information about the museum, how to get there, and how to buy tickets.

    Life is incomplete until you have gone up on the roof to have your picture taken with the doomed Raputa robot.

    I’ve only visited the Studio Ghibli Museum once but already count myself lucky for having done that. Walked to it from the train station as I couldn’t wait to get there and the bus looked full. Alas, I think I also missed the Totoro bus stop in the process! 🙁

    A question: were there any Ponyo-themed parts of the museum? (I ask because I visited before it and “Tales from Earth Sea” were released.)

    @YTSL nothing Ponyo related, only some drafts on the walls in the rooms where they explain the process of making a movie
