My tour guide was excellent. I hope to come back one day!! :)
It was a fun and personal afternoon tour to a very magical place. We had a group of 15 people, and most of them were Ghibli enthusiast. Naoko, our guide, she is very nice and informative. She gave us 1 hour free time after the tour, we mostly spent it on the museum shop and watching Ghibli's short film in the theater. Would be lovely to have another extra 30 minutes to sit down and have coffee/tea at the museum's cafe.
Overall, i totally recommend this, this museum is magical especially for those who grew up with Ghibli's lovely characters.
We did this tour last year and would do it again in a heartbeat. Guide was wonderful and as always, the museum is enchanting. We decided to leave the group so we could spend more time in the museum but the guide gave us very good directions on how to get back to Tokyo. Would definitely recommend for Ghibli fans and animation fans.
This was a fantastic tour. The guide was great. Very friendly, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable, even offering information on the surrounding area, and good places to see throughout Tokyo.
The museum itself is a wondrous place if you enjoy Studio Ghibli's animations. It has a fair amount of hands on exhibits that really take you behind the scenes of Studio Ghibli and its animations but by no means rob it of any of its magic. You can even see a short Studio Ghibli animation that's never been shown outside the museum. On all counts, I really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.
Even if you know nothing about the museum it is a great experience. Wonderful guide.
Superb! One of the highlights in our recent Tokyo visit. Not only we enjoyed the magical museum, we also had a great time with our guide Ms. Miki. She explained in detail all the exhibits inside and also was very helpful in assisting with Tokyo subway directions. A must see for all Ghibli and non Ghibli fans.Wonderful place, had a great time, will definitely come back :)
A great experience! Our tour guide Miki was wonderful and the museum was enchanting. This is a must for any fan of Miyazaki or anime for that matter and was the best tour I had during my stay in Tokyo. The only draw back was the group started by meeting at the Sun Route hotel which was a little tough to locate if you get out of the wrong side of the Shinjuku station and don't have a smart phone to guide you.
Our travel guide was very polite and knowledgeable. The guide explained everything very carefully in English as all the exhibits are presented in Japanese inside of the museum. A great experience for all the fans of the Ghibli -studio.
Rainy day :-( but still , my daughter really enjoyed it. Perfect for her ,
I am not a fan of Studio Ghibli so I had to be dragged along by my girlfriend. I was glad I was. The museum is something very special indeed. It's hard to describe how good it is. The tickets themselves are film cells so if you can't afford anything in the gift shop you'll always have a unique souvenir to take away. I can't wait to go back another day. The tour guide had a huge knowlegde and passion for the place which added to the enjoyment.
Nicest tour guide we've ever had. She went out of her way to help us with directions for our next event that day. Museum was great - well planned and very happy to have gone!
Thank you for this tour, we were most grateful to have a tour leader meet us at the hotel and take through the maze at Shinjuku station and onto the Museum.
Unfortunately one of our group fell ill on the day and couldn`t join the tour, is it possible to receive a refund? The tour leader wrote a note which was signed by the ill person to verify this, do you have a cancellation policy?
thank you again, the tour was great and wont hesitate to use Viator again.
