Make your way to Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel and greet your guide and group. Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and listen as your guide sets the cultural scene of the famous studio along the way; hear of Oscar-winning works such as Spirited Away and gain insight into the signature style of the production company. First stop is Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, where the architecture style has served as an inspiration for one of the Ghibli films. Enjoy the lunch at the hotel before heading to Ghibli Museum.

While at the museum, spend two hours exploring the exhibits on your own before leaving for the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum. Please note that the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum isn’t open Mondays, and Jindaiji Temple or Takahata Fudoson Temple will be a substitute stop in those cases.

Your guided tour ends seven hours later with drop-off in the Shinjuku area.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Miki was a wonderful tour guide. You can tell she really loves and knows a lot about Ghibli films. This tour particularly focused on Spirited away and some of the architecture that inspired the film. We got to the museum before it got super crowded which was great. Miki gave us an overview of the museum which really helped when looking around at the exhibits. Despite it being a very rainy day, we still went to the Edo Tokyo open air architecture museum which turned out to be really amazing and actually really lovely in the rain. I would not skip out on this part if you like history and architecture! The lunch at the hotel was absolutely amazing. The bus was clean and comfortable! Thank you for such a great tour!

We couldn’t have been happier to have actually been able to book this tour. We tried other companies and no one else could actually get us tickets. The museum itself was awesome and we absolutely loved it. Total satisfaction!!

The guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. This tour was good also because it was a one-way tour with returns to your original location by yourself. This was great as there was no rush as we could roam the museum at our own pace. Highly recommended!!

This is the best museum in Tokyo if you love Studio Ghibli films. This is my second time there. The bus took us to the museum and the guide gave us our tickets took us in and told us how to get back to the station to take the train back into the city. The museum usually has a special exhibit so make sure you check. You also get a small film strip as your ticket as a keep sake. Check out the special short movie. Go to the roof. The food is not great but it is themed.

i got this because from where i am there is no provider for Ghibli Museum Tickets. The tour guide was fun and polite and lots of information about the museum! Transpo from Shinjuku to the museum via bus. Would highly recommend this to anyone! We enjoyed a whole day in the museum, even had dinner at the restaurant but the waiting was so long though for the restaurant just to let you guys know.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

If you are a fan of Ghibli films and get the chance to visit, you absolutely must see the museum. Charming, engaging, and beautiful.
