Tokyo Studio Ghibli Museum Tour - Hayao Miyazaki's Animation World

This is a great tour especially if you are a Studio Ghibli fan! Our tour guide was very informative, and the bus ride to the museum was comfortable. It was a little strange being dropped off at the door, and then left to find our own way home, but it worked out great, and we could stay as long as we wanted! ...Erin M., USA – See more reviews
