Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel and greet your guide and group. Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and listen as your guide sets the cultural scene of the famous studio along the way; hear of Oscar-winning works such as 'Spirited Away' and gain insight into the signature style of the production company. First stop is Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, where the architecture style has served as an inspiration for one of the Ghibli films. Enjoy the lunch at the hotel before heading to the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum.

    Please note that the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architecture Museum isn’t open Mondays, and Jindaiji Temple or Takahata Fudoson Temple will be a substitute stop in those cases

    Next, visit the Ghibli Museum and take the time to wander through the exhibits at your leisure. .

    Your guided tour ends with a return to the drop-off point in the Shinjuku area.
