Ghibli Museum by Bus

You can go to Ghibli Museum from Mitaka Station by bus or walking.

It takes about 5 minutes by bus, and 15-20 minutes on foot.

 

First, I will explain the access by bus.


There is only one large ticket gate at Mitaka station. After you exit the ticket gate, left side is "South exit". and right side is "North exit".

GHIBLI MUSEUM is the side of "South exit". So turn left after you exit the ticket gate.

f:id:inudenchi:20170618190109j:plain

Take the escalato to the 1st floor.

By the way, you can go straight without using escalator. The yellow bus is bound for GHIBLI MUSEUM.That is the bus stop.
