5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This is a great afternoon for Ghibli fans! The museum is really well laid out and having an Engliah speaking guide to point out all the little quirky things and explain the exhibits was really helpful. Plus it made getting there a lot easier if you're still struggling to get to grips with the transport systems in Japan!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

im terrible at remembering names, and i feel really bad because our guide was fantastic! very knowledgeable about all thing ghibli, especially Totoro which was her favourite movie. You need to spend a lot of time here going through each room, the animation books, the displays, everything is just amazing especially if you are a studio ghibli fan like me! i couldnt contain my joy!!! the souvenir shop is jam packed with shoppers, in other tokyo toy stores i have been to, there was a range of studio ghibli memorabilia. so dont stress if you miss out. overall a great tour accompanied by a great guide.
