His animation films are massively popular in Japan and overseas, and has inspired numbers of artists and film workers. Ghibli Museum is the only museum in Tokyo that is dedicated to the work of Studio Ghibli, and if you are a Studio Ghibli film fan, you should definitely visit there.

The museum features the art and technique of animation, and some famous film characters such as a replica of Cat Bus from My Neighbour Totoro and a robot from Castle in the Sky. There are also a cafe and gift shop inside the museum. The museum is located at Inokashira Park in Mitaka City, Tokyo.

Advance booking is required for Ghibli Museum (tickets are not sold at the museum) , so make sure to reserve tickets online before visiting.

The museum must be run in such a way that…Small children are treated as if they were grown-ups Visitors with disabilities are accommodated as much as possible The staff can be confident and proud of their work Visitors are not controlled with predetermined courses and fixed directions It is suffused with ideas and new challenges so that the exhibits do not get dusty or old, and that investments are made to realize that goal

The displays will be…Not only for the benefit of people who are already fans of Studio Ghibli Not a procession of artwork from past Ghibli films as if it were “a museum of the past” A place where visitors can enjoy by just looking, can understand the artists’ spirits, and can gain new insights into animation

Original works and pictures will be made to be exhibited at the museum A project room and an exhibit room will be made, showing movement and life (Original short films will be produced to be released in the museum!) Ghibli’s past films will be probed for understanding at a deeper level
