What You Can Expect

Meet your guide at Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel, located just five minutes from the JR Shinjuku Station. You'll board a bus to the suburb of Mitaka, where the Ghibli Museum stands on a 4,000-acre (1,618-hectare) site in Inokashira Park.
During the approximate 45-minute drive from Tokyo, your guide explains the features of the museum and shares about the history of Studio Ghibli, the Japanese animation film studio that has produced acclaimed works like the Academy Award–winning film Spirited Away.
When you arrive, enjoy 1.5 hours to explore the museum on your own. See various exhibits that describe the animation process, take your kids to the play space, or watch a short film by anime director Hayao Miyazaki, only available for viewing on-site. Children will delight in the fun way that Ghibli characters are featured throughout the museum.

Visit the gift shop or restaurant to purchase souvenirs or food, if you wish, before your tour ends at the museum, leaving you free to make your own way back to Tokyo by train (own expense).
