SSIP 9日目は留学生も日本人も大好き!なスタジオジブリの美術館へ。


July 1st, Wednesday

Japan Studies:Activity④ Ghibli Museum

Today we visited the super popular Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka! It took a while for us to get there and despite the rain (which prevented us from taking too many pictures outside), it was well worth the wait! Upon entering the museum, we were surprised by the admission tickets which included actual film strips from the film reel! We also got to see one of only a few short animated films only shown in the museum. The museum itself had a very open layout where everyone was able to wander around freely and even touch some of the things on display like a full-scale replica of Miyazaki’s workbench! SSIP participants really enjoyed getting a chance to view their favorite Ghibli films like Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, and Howl’s Moving Castle in a fun and interactive way.
