So we say ありがとう, Thank You!
Hayao Miyazaki, the Godfather of animation and Studio Ghibli.
My absolute favourite is となりのトトロ, My Neighbor Totoro
Which one is yours?
Another wonderful day in Tokyo!
This last third week really get you in a vacation mood which I recommend you have in Tokyo to!
So. Wednesday. 12pm. 26 degrees out.
What better then this..
Thats right, Ghibli Museum
Totoro, Nausica, Howl’s Moving Castle, Laputa, Porco Rosso, Spirited Away etc.
You may think that this museum is a tourist attraction and You are right!
To get a ticket is not that easy so here is a guide!
1) Find a bearby Lawson. ( a combini store)
2) Ask if they speak English. Eigo o hanasemasuka? and say Ghibli Museum ticket!
3) Let them help you step by step to get your tickets from their Lippo-machine!
Its often fully booked so hope for the best and to be on the best side, check Lawson for dates early in your vacation for a chanse to see this amazing (all Japanese) museum!
If you get a ticket (o^^o) then go to Shinjuku, there change to Chuo/Sobu line for Mitaka. (Be that you might have to change to another track along the way so pay attention to the woman voice in the train;)
I recommend to stop at Kichijoji (one stop before Mitaka) and walk through Inokashira Park to the museum. Take the Park Exit. 🙂
