Each year, about 650,000 people visit the museum, and the museum only allows 2,400 people each day. You have to buy your tickets in advance, so if you are interested in visiting please buy your tickets early!

And in Miyazaki-sensei news, he is currently making a new CG-animated short titled “Kemushi no Boro” (Boro the Caterpillar), which will be shown in the museum later this year.


Thanks for stopping-by and we will see you next time!
