Ghibli studios are the creators of some of Japan's most amazing animated films, such as Totoro, Spirited Away and Kiki. The studio has won several awards for its beautiful films. In 2001, the Ghibli Museum, located a bit outside Tokyo, was opened dedicated to the studios movies.. The museum is influenced by European architecture and the building itself is part of the exhibition. Already a bit from the museum you can see the big robot from "Laputa Castle in the Sky", which is the museum's own guardian. At the entrance you are warmly greeted to this imaginative museum by Totoro. Once inside the museum there are both permanent exhibitions based on their own films, but there are also several temporary exhibitions during the year. The motto of the museum is "Let's become a child again", which has influenced the entire exhibition to have a child-friendly and playful impression. Tickets for the Ghibli Museum must be booked one month in advance.
