The Ghibli museum is a flagship museum (there is no other museum of Studio Ghibli in Japan) of the Japanese animation film company, Studio Ghibli (director: Hayao Miyazaki), which is located in Ino-kashira Park near National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.
The Ghibli museum exhibits the history, storyboards, and arts of successive films of the Studio Ghibli such as "My Neighbor Totoro", "Pricess Mononoke", and "Spirited Away" (Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, 2002) and also, shows a short film at the basement theatre and has a fancy park with two replicas of a giant warrior in "Nausicaä of the Walley of the Wind" and Catbus in "My Neighbor Totoro". A fantasy world in the Ghibli museum that is far from the crowd will give you a great experience. We hope you guys enjoy the stay in Mitaka city.
