  • [Question] Ghibli Museum


  • #2
    Re: Ghibli Museum

    I believe you should be okay with waiting until you get to Japan to purchase tickets at Lawson since May 13th is a weekday and not a national holiday.

    I think this thread is pretty helpful: buying ghibli museum tickets from lawson - japan-guide.com forum

        No advice, only some pixie dust to send your way, hoping your trip is fabulous. Visiting one of the Holy Grails of Animation is bound to be a special experience.

          I can't remember at all, but is there a Lawson's store in either Ikspiari or at the Maihama station? I've been to the resort several times but never really paid attention.

            There is not a Lawson's in Maihama Eki or in Ikspiari. There are two NewsDay convinience stores in Maihama Eki. One inside the gates and one right near to the TDR Welcome Center.

              We did the Ghibli Museum last week. We bought our tickets/tour though Viatours for the afternoon tour (the guide was excellent). We met close to Shinjuku and took the train - I think there were 12 of us.

              My only advice would be to get an early entry time. We only had a few hours there and it wasn't enough time to wander and really let the place work its magic.

              The 'short' they show in the theater there is worth the price of admission alone. Then there's the gift shop - we spent a small fortune :-)

              The Ghibli themed bus stop and bus are great!

                Since there isn't a Lawsons near the resort, does anyone know where there is one? I'm familiar with Tokyo Station if there's one near there- I've been in Tokyo dozens of times, but never really took notice.

                I wanted to purchase my tickets for the museum there and take the train to there. The tours sound good- but I've seen them starting at 6000yen and that only covers admission and transportation.

                I'd rather get the tickets in advance and then go on my own if anyone has any other advice.

                  If you are familiar with Tokyo Station then you can go to the Lawson's outside of the station on the Yaesu side of Tokyo Station. If you go out the Yaesu south exit where the JR Bus terminal is, walk across the street towards the Yaesu Book Center and you will find a Lawson's.

                  If you don't know... the Lawson's logo is the blue logo inbtween the Seven Eleven and Circle K logos on the map.

                    Thanks Roger55, I'm a little familiar with it, but I'm sure I'll find it. I usually travel with my friend, but will be on my own this time so I'm a little nervous. I'm trying to plan everything out before I leave for Japan next weekend.
