The Studio Ghibli Museum is a unique and wonderful place, and an essential visit for any family or individual visitor to make. We had a really excellent tour guide who was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. It was a real highlight of my first visit to Tokyo.
The museum is unlike anything you have ever seen before. The place is designed firmly with children's imagination in mind. The design is to deliberately get you lost so you can discover small bits of whimsy. What ever they paid our guide it wasn't enough, She worked hard throughout to keep us informed and even personally escorted us to our relevant platforms at the end of the day. She was extremely knowledgeable about the museum, and animation. The only minor drawback is that it was two hours at the museum which isn't long enough to take it all in, and in the winter it gets dark while at the museum. A must see if you are in the area.
Going along on a guided tour was really worth it since all the signs inside the museum were in Japanese. The guide had very good English and I can really recommend this tour!
This was the best part of my trip to Tokyo. My eleven year old son was amazed by everything there. Our guide was wonderful and not only did a great job giving us the personal tour at the museum but also gave us lots of info on the way and on the return. She was also helpful at helping us plan additional activities on some of our free days afterwards.
This was a very fun tour. I was told from people that live in Japan that it is hard to get in if you live there. I would suggest doing this tour if you like Japanese anime.

Thank you so much. This was amazing thanks to our tour guide. He was the best tour guide I've ever had, no joke! Thank you!
Excellent, well worth the trip and my adviser was excellent and very kind, whom she also spoke exquisite English.
This was a fantastic place to visit, even for a couple of adults who should really not have been as enchanted and mesmerized as we were. We would recommend it to anyone.
I wish there was more time to explore everything earlier since the tour stars in the afternoon. Otherwise it was a fun and great experience. It is a bit pricey but worth it if you don't know much japanese. Our tour guide was really nice and informative.
Shame could not take photos inside the museum but very good otherwise.
The guide was really informative, which was really good as there were no English display boards in the museum. I would have loved having more time to explore the museum on my own, as there was just so many things to see!
Everything is in Japanese, so if you cannot read it, you won't get much out of Studio Ghibli! The tour guide walked us through the main exhibits for half an hour, explaining the main ideas, and then gave us more than an hour of free time. It helps if you've watched and enjoyed Miyazaki's films :)
though tour guide was good. hated how tour guide waited for one of the families in the tour with a very rude child who took up all our time by running away and whining and complaining. Because of them we were late coming back .
