Tour outline

  The Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, founded by the prominent movie director Hayao Miyazaki, has been attracting a lot of visitors since 2001. The interactive displays of the museum engage all of the your senses and take you on a journey of discovery. From movies to exhibits that show Miyazaki’s animation process, the museum offers something for everyone – and not just those who are already Ghibli fans. Children can enjoy a ride on the fluffy Cat Bus, from the iconic "My Neighbour Totoro" movie, and everyone can relax on the roof top garden in the shade of a Giant Robot Soldier, which is the guardian of the Ghibli Museum.


  However, as this museum doesn't have English captions, explanations or audio guides, you will need to be attended by one of our bilingual guides who has special knowledge of the facility.


  The themes of director Hayao Miyazaki's films usually employ the belief of a world where spirits reside in nature. These spirits, both good and evil, such as the sun, seas, rivers, wind, stones, trees, animals, interact and live harmoniously with humans. After visiting the museum, we'll explore the town of Kichijoji through Inokashira Park, along with the forest of Musashino that produced and nourished the unique philosophy of Miyzaki's animation.
