For Today’s Japan Photo, we shall take a peek at one of the must-visit places for all anime fans – Ghibli Museum [三鷹の森ジブリ美術], located in Inokashira Park in Mitaka, a western suburb of Tokyo, Japan..
This lovely photo was taken by the awesome photographer Tokyoluv, whom I had previously mentioned that you should check out his site.
Here’s a little more background info on Ghibli Museum [三鷹の森ジブリ美術]:
Ghibli Museum [三鷹の森ジブリ美術] is a commercial museum featuring the Japanese anime work of Studio Ghibli, and is located in Inokashira Park in Mitaka, a western suburb of Tokyo, Japan.
The museum is a fine arts museum, but does not take the concept of a usual fine arts museum. With many features that are child-oriented and a sprawling and occasionally mazelike interior, the museum is a playfully created place.
Centered around the motto appearing on the museum’s website “Let’s become lost children together” (迷子になろうよ、いっしょに), or ‘let’s lose our way together’ as it is translated in the English leaflet. It has no set path or order of viewing. While the museum brochure contains a variety of languages, the signs within the museum are in Japanese only.
