Tour description provided by Viator

If you're traveling with your family, or you are a fan of Japanese Anime, this afternoon tour to the renowned Studio Ghibli Museum is for you. You'll soon see why Studio Ghibli is famous for creating the best quality Anime around, and is known as the Disney of the East.

You'll join other animation lovers and take a bus to Mitaka, where the Ghibli Museum stands on a 4000-acre site in a green park. Enjoy a guided tour of the museum (approximately 45 minutes), then you are free to explore on your own for a further 45 minutes.

The museum houses various exhibits describing the animation process, a play space and movie theater showing a short film by director Hayao Miyazaki, known for his award-winning film 'Spirited Away'. Children are specially catered for, and the Ghibli characters feature in a fun way throughout the museum. There is also a restaurant and gift shops where you can purchase food and souvenirs.

After exploring the museum, your guide will travel with you to Tokyo Station by local train, where your tour will end.
