ghibli museum...

is one of the greatest places ever! even if your not familiar with the studio's work it's a must see in japan. the museum is located in a small area called mitaka which is a train ride and bus ride away form tokyo. we left from shinjuku and i think it took about 30-40 min total but you know you got the right place if you see this bus!

and the photos stop because like almost everywhere else here no "click-click" inside!
well once you pass the catbus room you go out the doors and it leads you to here

it's pretty cool and all but if you make your way back in you can enjoy a nice short film with this little guy
