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!!
I have always dreamt about visiting the museum all of my life! It was amazing and I really enjoyed the history of studio Ghibli told on the bus ride to the museum!
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.
If you are a fan of Ghibli films and get the chance to visit, you absolutely must see the museum. Charming, engaging, and beautiful.
Wonderful opportunity to enjoy animation at a whimsical studio!
The tour bus picked us up at the hotel which was very easy to walk to from the station. The tour is pretty much on the bus, the guide gave us info about studio ghibli and the history of the building and it's importance. Once we arrived at the museum, the guide gave us free range, because apparently guides aren't allowed inside to conduct tours. Which made since once we got inside, there are twists and turns and ups and downs, everywhere, it's like walking into the imagination of an animator. The museum was amazing and the gift store is fantastic. If you are a fan of beer like me they have some specialty brews that are only available at the museum. The guide leaves it up to us to find our way back to civilization, however there is a CatBus that comes every 10 mins and takes passengers straight to the nearest Station. Very convenient. Over all, great trip and totally worth booking.
It's hard to get tickets for the museum, this is a sure thing.
Our visit was magical. We saw a un-released mini movie starring Kitten Bus. Food was tasty but waited a while to be seated in the restaurant. I was a little upset I couldn't take photos I was even told off for taking a photo of my food in the restaurant!!
This tour was a highlight of our trip! As Ghibli and animation fans it is a must do. And as foreign tourists it seems the best way to be sure you can get in! Book your tour early! Plan to stay the day!

This was the best and easiest way for us to procure tickets to the Ghibli museum, especially since they sell out so quickly. We met the guide at a hotel and we took a bus 40 minutes or so outside of Tokyo. During the bus ride, our guide told us a short history about the Ghibli museum and led us into the museum. The museum itself is great! It wasn't too big but we spent at least 4 hours there since we love Ghibli's films. The restaurant is great, but expect to wait. This doesn't include transportation back to Tokyo, but there's a Ghibli bus that can take you to the closest metro for a small fare we just walked to the metro.
The Ghibli Museum takes you to another world! We had a wonderful time!
Miki was very knowledgeable and the trip to Ghibli Museum was fun and entertaining.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Ghibli Museum. This time we can stay longer for if this is in summer the museum only allows you to stay for two hours.like eight years ago when my family were there. you can enjoy the short film by Miyazaki and his apprentices' work and all sort of art tools to make his animated so lively and vivid. After the tour My daughter Janet and I follow the tour guide instruction that we will walk through the park to Kichijoji Station. Beautiful park with antique post showing you where to go and once you exit the park there are many artistic shops that you will stop to browse even you don't want to buy anything. For sure there has to be something that you can't resist.
Took this tour while visiting Tokyo with our two adult children - loved the tour and the Ghibli! Tour guide Miki was a pro, and gave valuable background information during our relaxing bus ride to the museum. Ghibli had the custom feel that Disneyland is missing.
The guide was enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the Ghibli history and characters. She offered to take a picture in front of the reception area with totoro.
This is a great way to get tickets and been driven to the museum. If you don't know how to get back to your hotel, don't worry the guide was awesome at giving written directions.
Cute experience! A must for any hardcore studio Ghibli fans : The tour guide isn't actually allowed to give tours inside the building due to regulations by the museum, but she did do her best to prep us on the bus ride over.
So glad we booked this tour. My son and I had a really interesting experience at the Ghibli Museum on our last day in Tokyo and is a real must for fans. The tour was very well organised from the outset and our guide provided great commentary on the bus trip to the museum. We also received detailed information on returning to our hotel which was greatly appreciated. The museum itself is wonderful, very interesting, detailed and a pleasure to visit. Once we arrived we had as much time as we liked exploring the musuem, watching a short film, visiting the book store and of course the souvenir shop. Highly recommended.
My husband and I had been to the Ghibli Museum on a previous trip to Tokyo, but found that getting to the Mitaka area wasn't terribly easy or quick. Having a bus take you directly to the museum from a meeting place in Shinjuku and getting those difficult-to-snag tickets was so very, very worth it! The tour operator was very kind and accommodating and provided wonderful trivia on the ride there, and we learned some fun facts, even though we had previously been to the museum and are Studio Ghibli fans! You do have to find your own way back, but handouts with maps and tips for getting to popular destinations and neighborhoods around Tokyo were provided that specified the routes and the amount of fare required so helpful. I love that we could spend all day at the museum and leave at our leisure to head anywhere we wanted to go afterward.
