Amazing Trip to Ghibli Museum and Edo Open Air Architectural Museum

Our family of four had an awesome time visiting the Ghibli Museum on Jan 3rd. Shuichi met us at our hotel and directed us through all the various trains and buses so we didn’t have to plan it ourselves. During our various train rides, we were entertained with trivia, puzzles and origami crafts. Shuichi (Shoe) was helpful, knowledgeable and took wonderful pictures of our family both at the Ghibli Museum and the Edo Open Air Architecture Museum. He shared tidbits of history both at Ghibli and the Architecture Museum which made the personal tour more informative. I’m glad he recommended we leave at 8 so we could get there at opening for the Ghibli Museum as it was definitely more crowded when we left. We highly recommend him if you are looking for a super easy and convenient way to see the Ghibli Museum. We had no problems communicating with him in English. Visiting both museums is a full day tour - we left at 8 from our Tokyo hotel and didn’t get back until 5 taking the subways (which is super clean and orderly). We are so glad we got to tour with him. Thank you Shuichi!

Dear Hsin Katio family. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and high rating. I had great time with your family. Now I think you have arrived your home safely and restarted happy daily life. See you again someday in future. Good bye today. Best Regards,…..Shuichi (Shoe)

Fun Ghibli Day!

My teens are big Studio Ghibli fans and this tour didn't disappoint. We thought the Ghibli Museum would be the highlight of the tour, but everyone actually enjoyed the open air museum and the architectural inspiration the most. Our guide was friendly, informative and a pleasure to be with. Thank you, Shu!
