Japan’s Ghibli Museum Offering Virtual Videos of the Museum


I know that Studio Ghibli isn’t distributed by Disney anymore, but it has a strong presence in my favorite EPCOT store, the Mitsukoshi Department Store! I’m a huge Ghibli fan so I wanted to share this with other fans!

Due to the museum being shut down over Coronavirus concerns, they have started a YouTube channel and are putting up short videos taking guests to various areas of the museum. Now, even when the museum is open it’s hard to get into. Guest usually have to have advanced reservations to do so. The videos are short enough not to ruin a visit. But as someone who lives very far away, I’m excited to see any bit they want to share!

Here are the videos they have posted so far:

As I said, they give us a small glimpse but don’t ruin what a full experience would be like!

I love seeing the various elements and that My Neighbor Totoro door is amazing!

Here are some other photos of the museum:
