The Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka of west Tokyo was designed by none other than Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki is the famed director behind the films "My Neighbor Totoro," "Spirited Away," "Howl’s Moving Castle," "Princess Mononoke," and more. This isn’t a typical museum filled with glass display cases—it’s a “portal to the storybook world” where you can immerse yourself in the world Miyazaki himself created.

Studio Ghibli’s films have been a massive hit with audiences of all backgrounds for over three decades. A visit to the Studio Ghibli Museum gives visitors a glimpse into the animation world. No doubt everyone will appreciate the passion and painstaking detail that is put into each film.

Studio Ghibli Animation Studio was founded in 1985 by Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. The studio’s films immediately captured the hearts of first a Japanese, then a worldwide audience. The first movie the animation studio released was "Laputa: Castle in the Sky." In 1988, "My Neighbor Totoro" was released, which includes several characters that are still adored by many and considered a major part of Japanese culture today.
