TOKYO | The Ghibli Museum is a museum dedicated to the work of the Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli. Walking through the tall green trees of Mitaka’s Inokashira Park and into the colourful museum is like stepping into a storybook.

The museum was designed by Japanese animator, filmmaker, screenwriter, cartoonist, author, and manga artist Hayao Miyazaki, one of Studio Ghibli’s founders. The building reflecst Miyazaki’s building designs  in his films, and a sense of fun and wonder permeates throughout.

Permanent exhibits include a reproduction of an artist’s studio with hundreds of sketches, an exhibit room showing the history and science of animation, and more. Several rooms and scenes from assorted Studio Ghibli are recreated as life size exhibits that visitors can walk through. Temporary exhibits change depending on new film releases, and often showcase the work of other animation studios.

A few hours exploring this charming museum is something that anyone can enjoy, regardless of whether they’re familiar with the work Studio Ghibli or not. Tickets can be purchased online in advance. It’s recommended you buy your tickets at least two months before you plan to visit as sessions sell out quickly and tickets cannot be purchased at the door.

Also note that photography and video recording is prohibited inside the museum, because Miyazaki’s goal is for people to experience this “portal to a storybook world” with their own eyes and ears.
