The Mitaka Forest Gihbli Museum captures the essence of the works of Miyazaki Hayao, Japan’s most prominent anime director. The museum isn’t just a collection of displays of Totoro or Laputa; rather, it is an interactive experience where you can walk into the movies and play in spaces that are inspired by the movies. Part of the Ghibli Museum includes a park, which brings a breath of fresh air and greenery to Tokyo. Tickets can be bought in advance at Lawson convenience stores, and they come with a specific time and date in which one can visit. The museum is in high demand, and if you want some choice in the times, or want to visit during weekends, plan to book the tickets a month or more in advance. Visitors from abroad can purchase tickets through a JTB travel agent, which also offers tickets for the same day inside Japan if they are still available.
