JTB is the authorised agent worldwide for reserved entrance to the Ghibli Museum for overseas visitors.

Limited numbers of advance tickets are available to purchase. The museum makes confirmed admission available for specific dates only. These are sold worldwide through the JTB Group, in a variety of packages.

If you are outside Europe, you may find that buying from one of JTB’s other offices worldwide will be most convenient. Please see the list of outlets on the Ghibli Museum official website.

  • Ghibli Priority package: this is the most reliable method of securing tickets. Due to our limited supply, we give priority to clients making multiple arrangements with us (minimum 2 nights hotel, Japan Rail Pass and Ghibli tickets).
  • Ghibli Museum & Ghibli Film Appreciation tour: this is a comprehensive tour that guarantees entry to the museum, and includes visits to various locations in Tokyo that inspired scenes in popular Ghibli features. This is a good option for those with a deep interest in Ghibli films. It is less suitable for younger children.
  • Ticket only: sales online by Lawson ticket: Tickets go on sale from the tenth of each month for the following month (for example, tickets for 01-31 July go on sale on June 10). Tickets are good only for the specified date and time of entry. More information and sales on the website of Lawson HMV Entertainment.
