You don't have to be a fan of Studio Ghibli's magical animations to enjoy this topsy-turvy museum. Surrounded by a tree-filled park and filled with charming details, walking into the Ghibli Museum feels like entering a storybook.
Children 12 and younger will have a wonderful time playing on the fluffy Cat Bus and watching special short movies which you can only see here. Up on the rooftop you can pose beside a friendly robot from the movie Laputa (Castle in the Sky). Advance reservations are a must for this popular art museum, as you cannot buy tickets on the day of your visit. To avoid disappointment, try to book at least a couple months in advance.
