Our experience at Ghibli museum was unlike any other...I felt completely transported by the amazing exhibits and short films that describe the processes behind cartoon and film development. It embodies wonder and pure happiness, it's definitely worth the visit!

Ghibli Museum is a small, lovely building, holding artifacts that can be a real pleasure for anime fans, but a rather medium experience for those, that got there without watching at least "The neighbor Totoro" and "Spirited Away" :-)
