    Even with timed entry it gets super crowded. Just prepare yourself for crowds.
  • Rachel R.
    You must buy tix far in advance, but absolutely worth it.

    I got my ticket through JTB in NYC before I went to Tokyo. I took the Keio-Inokashira line and walked through Inokashira Park. The museum was an incomparable delight. A "must see"!!

    Museum showcasing the art, design & innovation of the famous studio. Must-do pilgrimage for fans. Book the tickets online through Lawson, which is open for booking 1 month before.

    As much as I want to love this place with all my heart: its lack of crowd control and lack of English information makes me a bit sad. Go early! Head for the gift shop first to shop in peace.

    Very cool museum. Quirky layout of the building, giant Cat Bus inside to sit in, plus you get to see a short Ghibli film only available at the museum.

    They show different short movies and make small updates to the exhibition so it's worth coming the second time!

    More for kids. But still pretty cool to see all the work art from Studio Ghibli.

    Make sure to book your tickets plenty of time in advance. They do not sell tickets at the door plus they have a limited amount of daily tickets for international distribution.

    Great for the Studio Ghibli fan! Arrived at 10am and short wait (15-20min) to get in. Make sure you buy your ticket beforehand (website has details, can buy from Lawson) as there aren't any door sales

    You can easily walk here from Mitaka station. Plan to spend at least 3 hours getting lost here. There's lots that you won't see if you don't look close enough ;)

    Be early if you're planning to have lunch there to avoid the long queue which could take up to an hour. Otherwise, takeaway counter is quick, with a simple menu.

    Get admission tickets in advance. Try to be there at 9:30am to avoid line ups. Do not miss straw hat cafe. It opens at 11am, be the first group there as the cafe fills up fast.
