Overview
Experience the magic of Studio Ghibli during an enchanting tour to the Ghibli Museum and Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, gain insight into the history of the magical movies during the comfortable journey to Mitaka, and then set out to explore the Ghibli Museum independently. Convenient transportation from Tokyo is included on this tour, as well as entrance fees. On Mondays, your visit to Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum will be substituted by a visit to Jindaiji Temple or Takahata Fudoson Temple.
Please note: The order of the tour itinerary will be changed from January 2019. You'll visit the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum after lunch first, and then head to the Ghibli Museum. Time at Ghibli Museum will be extended to 2.5 hours.
What to Expect
Make your way to Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel and greet your guide and group. Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and listen as your guide sets the cultural scene of the famous studio along the way; hear of Oscar-winning works such as Spirited Away and gain insight into the signature style of the production company. First stop is Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, where the architecture style has served as an inspiration for one of the Ghibli films. Enjoy the lunch at the hotel before heading to Ghibli Museum.
While at the museum, spend two hours exploring the exhibits on your own before leaving for the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum. Please note that the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum isn’t open Mondays, and Jindaiji Temple or Takahata Fudoson Temple will be a substitute stop in those cases.
Your guided tour ends seven hours later with drop-off in the Shinjuku area.

Has to be a Avid fan of Miyazaki’s breakthrough animation works to appreciate everything but well worth it if can find a ticket to join in.

Best trip for AVID Ghibli fans. There were many movie references for those in the know concerning all things Ghibli throughout the bus tour. Disappointed that you cannot take any photos at all in the museum, but it was a fascinating museum.
