Studio Ghibli Museum
Saturday, May 15, 2010

As promised, here is my account of my visit to 三鷹の森ジブリ美術館 or literally translated as "Ghibli Museum of the Mitaka Forest". For those who don't know, Ghibli Museum is a studio that produces animation movies created by founder Miyazaki Hayao. If you have ever watched a Ghibli movie before, you will find that it is different from other Japanese animation movies. The stories have a beautiful plot, with superb animation and soothing songs, as well as a hidden message behind each movie. One of my personal favourite is one called "Spirited Away" : )



(note: i am in LOVE with the mouse from "Spirited Away". Its name is Boo ^^)


Off we go to Studio Ghibli Museum! FYI, you can't buy tickets on the spot. You have to go to Lawson (a convenience store) and purchase your tickets there. My friends and I booked one week before; each ticket costs 1000 yen (around SGD 15).



700 metres away...





300 metres away..





At the main entrance, you will be greeted by Totoro, from the movie となりのトトロ(Tonari no Totoro/My Neighbour Totoro).





First we went to visit a room where there is a Hall of Fame of all previous Studio Ghibli productions. Absolutely no photography inside, but I managed to capture a few! It is really hard to do so with all guards watching.






These are all miniature sized! Looks like a real office right?




The interior of the museum. So pretty, I'd love a house like this!






Stained glass windows with Ponyo characters on them (from the movie "Ponyo on the Sea by the Cliff"










Next we walked outside and climbed a long flight of stairs. It was worth it, because outdoors there was a giant Laputa statue! This is a character from another Ghibli movie called "Laputa in the Sky".




















Indoors there is also a Neko Bus (Cat Bus) but it is only for very young children to play. They are allowed to go inside and play with little black balls (with eyes) that are supposed to represent germs. Cute germs, though : P



BOO SURROUNDED BY GERMS!!!







There was a special room for exhibitions.. and lucky for us, the "Ponyo on the sea by the cliff" exhibition was on!! The graphics were beautiful. Too bad only these few pictures because the guard kept eyeing us...




A few more shots of how the museum looks like from the outside







Even though my pictures don't do the real museum justice, I guess one word to describe my experience there is: magical. Museums are really meant for the eye to take in all the sights, not by photography. So I'd like to come here again someday, with both of you, and marvel at all the stuff I couldn't capture on camera..



Sayounara!
