Hi Kawaii Travelers!

Kaila and I went to Ghibli museum in Roppongi hills a few days ago and we’re excited to share this experience with you.

The Ghibli Museum started last July 7 and it will run until September 11 only. So if you are in Tokyo during this time, better not miss this rare Ghibli exhibit!

Pro-tip: Fall in line as early as 9:30 am so you won’t wait that much. We arrived at 10:00am and the line was already long.

Ahhh dream come true! We were able to ride the catbus!! Who says it isn’t real?

Can you guess which character this is?
