5. About Ghibli Museum

Ghibli Museum, Mitaka was planned by Japan's top animated film director, Hayao Miyazaki, famous for "Spirited Away",
"Princess Mononoke", "My Neighbor Totoro", and "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea", and is managed by Tokuma Memorial
Culture Foundation for Animation; Kiyofumi Nakajima, Managing Director.

The museum has a permanent exhibit on the history and techniques of animation. You can see Totoro's Cat Bus,
a process of making animation films and an original short film which can be seen only in the museum theater.
The museum itself is like a maze and is whimsically designed in the distinct style of the studio's films.
Many of their famous characters are there, including a life-sized robot from Castle in the Sky on the rooftop garden.
"Let's Lose Our Way, Together" is the concept of the museum.
If you are a fan of Japanese Anime, or you travel with your family, you must visit Ghibli Museum.
