Take a Virtual Tour of the Studio Ghibli Museum in Japan
The famously secretive museum doesn’t allow visitors to take photos or videos.
The Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan, is offering virtual tours on its YouTube channel, allowing fans to take a look around the famed space as the coronavirus pandemic extends closures across the country.
A series of four videos takes viewers around select areas of the museum including an entry foyer painted with various Studio Ghibli characters (keep an eye out for Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service and the Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro), an installation detailing the film process and the quaint Straw Hat Café. The museum forbids IRL visitors from taking photos and videos inside, so its virtual tour videos offer a coveted look at a building typically shrouded in mystery.
