The tour was fantastic. Our guide was great and full of knowledge. She even suggested other places to go on other days. The museum was lovely. Magical. Recommended.

Amazing place - as sweet as Miyazaki-san's films. One of our Japan Trip highlights.

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!

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.

I recommend if you love animation or are traveling with children. You need to purchase tickets ahead of time in advance anyway and they sell out frequently, so purchasing this with a tour that helps you travel to and from the location is convenient. Also, the descriptions inside are all in Japanese so if you want to know what they say, having the tour guide to translate is very convenient. You cannot take pictures inside the museum, but there are some wonderful locations outside for you to view.

Our guide Honda was awesome. Extremely polite and made sure that we got to the Ghibli museum together. She also bought us a little gift at the shop as the Ghibli movie that was shown changed from what was advertised. The tour/museum was brilliant, I was just gutted that you had to be under 12 to play on the giant cat bus (I'm 30!). I would go back again if I'm ever in Tokyo and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

This was a tour I was looking forward to. The guide was energetic and knowleageable. She got us from Shinjuku to Mitaka and to the museum in a organized way and back. The museum itself only takes about 40 minutes to walk through. There is a short film that's 10 minutes you can view later on as well. The only problem is the museum has alot of activity with kids and classes visiting so it makes it hard to hear the guide and what they're saying, especially in a large group. Large can be just 12 people. It makes it hard to hear if the guide doesn't yell or have a big voice. We had ample free time to explore the museum on our own and visit the gift shop after the initial walk through with the guide.

Really fun, a must if you're a fan of Ghibli or animation in general. A lot of interesting stuff to see, plus a neat little bookshop and souvenir store. We're planning on going back in a few years with our first child so he/she can play in the catbus :D
