Visit the rooftop garden

Visiting the Ghibli Museum is like wandering into the world of Japan's most renowned animated film studio. Featuring exhibits showcasing the works of Hayao Miyazaki, it's an interactive experience.

Located in Mitaka, a suburb of Tokyo, the Ghibli Museum is an art and animation museum that pays tribute to Japan's most beloved animation studio. It's also home to an interactive play area for kids, as well as a small theater and a rooftop garden. It's a must-see for fans of the Studio Ghibli films.

The museum has a wide central hall that extends to a circular dome at the top. On the second floor, you'll find temporary exhibits. The third floor has shops and a cafe. You can also visit the rooftop garden, which has silent robots from "Castle in the Sky" and seasonally changing plant life.

Aside from its art and animation exhibits, the Ghibli Museum has a small theater that plays the short animated feature "Castle in the Sky." This movie was made especially for the museum and can be seen only inside.

Buy tickets online

Getting Ghibli Museum tickets can be a tricky endeavor. These tickets are sold in limited quantities, and can sell out within hours of being posted online. The best way to get tickets is to buy in advance. There are several ways to do so, but the most popular is by using an online ticketing website.

While the official ticket store in Japan, Loppi, also sells normal tickets for the event, the best way to get Ghibli tickets is by using a third-party site. You can use a service such as Viator to ensure that you have the best chance of securing a ticket.

Lawson, the Japanese convenience store chain, also has tickets available, but they are available only when tickets are available. This means that you will have to plan your trip months in advance. It is not the cheapest way to buy tickets, but it is the simplest.

You can also purchase Ghibli Museum tickets from a local travel agent. However, you should be aware that these tickets are only valid for the date of the visit, and you will not be able to change the date or time.

Ghibli Museum Online Tickets & Guided Tours

Getting Ghibli Museum tickets can be difficult, especially if you want to visit on a popular date. The museum requires you to book in advance.

Buying Ghibli Museum tickets online can be a great option. However, the website is often slow because of heavy traffic. You will need to pre-order the tickets before the 5th of the previous month to ensure that you will get a ticket. The website also does not guarantee that you will receive the ticket you have purchased.

You can also buy Ghibli Museum tickets through third-party websites such as Viator or JTB. These websites offer tickets that are good for both day trips and long-distance travel. They are more expensive than using a tour operator, but can get you the tickets you need.

Another option is to try to get a ticket from the Lawson convenience store. These tickets can be bought online, in person, or by phone. They are available for children under the age of four for free. You will need to show your ID and proof of your official documents when you purchase your ticket.

Finally, you can go to the Mitaka City Tourism Association Office to buy tickets for your neighborhood. These tickets are generally sold at face value. You can also get last-minute tickets from Get Your Guide. These tickets can be purchased up to a year in advance, but they can be expensive. They can be transferred from other museums and tourist attractions to the Ghibli Museum.

How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
