Suggestion for those who could not get tickets to Ghibli Park
Some people may think, “That’s not Ghibli Park,” or “I want to go to Ghibli Park! I want to go to Ghibli Park!
However, if you have participated in the ticket wars (let’s call them “ticket wars”) and experienced the difficulty, you may think that it is okay if you can enjoy 50% of the park, if not all of it.
That is how difficult it is to obtain tickets to Ghibli Park. Even in Japan, where conditions are supposed to be better than overseas, tickets sell out very quickly (T_T).
Some of the people who contact us say, “I scheduled my trip to Japan without knowing the rule of reserving tickets 3 months in advance! There are a few people who have said, “I scheduled my trip to Japan without knowing the rule of booking tickets 3 months in advance!
Some of you may be thinking of shifting your travel schedule for the sake of Ghibli Park.
However, if you are unable to move your travel schedule, even if you cannot visit Ghibli Park, it may not be a bad idea to immerse yourself in the world of Ghibli at a place where you can experience its atmosphere.
For those who cannot visit Ghibli Park but want to immerse themselves in the world of Ghibli in Japan
This article is about a trip to Japan that is already planned but I can’t get tickets to Ghibli Park.
But I still want to immerse myself in the world of Studio Ghibli in Japan. This information is for those people.
When we exchange e-mails, many people are convinced by it.
No matter how inexpensive and easy it is to get to Japan, you can’t come here that many times, so such an option is not a mistake.
Now, I would like to introduce some concrete alternatives.
Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition by Studio Ghibli
One concrete alternative is the Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition.
Many of the contacts were from people who had decided to travel to Japan but were unable to obtain tickets to Ghibli Park.
Since there was no way I could assist them in obtaining tickets, I decided to tell them about Ghibli Park and the Ghibli exhibition as an alternative.
I had attended the event exhibition one year before the opening of Ghibli Park in 2021, but I suggested that the content of the exhibition was a goof up from that.
As it turned out, it was well received! Several people have reported that tickets were easy to obtain.

Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition will be held at 5 venues until September 2023
The “Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition” is a traveling exhibition that has been held at five venues in museums and art galleries in Japan since July 2022.
As of late February 2023, two venues (Nagano and Aichi Prefectures) have completed the exhibition, and each of the venues currently holding the exhibition has a relatively long duration of over two months.

It can be said that the museum serves as a publicity arm for Ghibli Park, but the contents of the exhibits are also quite gorgeous.
You could call it a digest version of Ghibli’s Grand Warehouse, and you could spend a lot of time here immersing yourself in the world of Studio Ghibli.
Overview of Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibitions
No English-language information is provided, so it is difficult to communicate to foreign visitors, but tickets can be purchased at Boo-Woo Tickets, just as at Ghibli Park.
Tickets must be reserved, but they are easy to obtain and not as difficult as those at Ghibli Park. The contents are also satisfactory.
We have heard from purchasers of the Nagano and Aichi venues that they are satisfied with the content.
There are exhibits such as a cat bus, a Nisei director’s room, a 1/5 size Satsuki and May’s house, and a scene where you can pretend to be Kaonashi. *Slight differences depending on the venue.
Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition Dates and Venues
Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition are no longer being held at the Nagano and Aichi venues.
Please keep this in mind as a preliminary knowledge in case you break down in obtaining tickets or cannot move your travel schedule.

From here, it’s not too late! Not really, but I will give you an overview of the Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibitions that are being & will be held.
Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition Kumamoto Venue: – 3/28 2023
The Kumamoto venue has been open since January and will close on March 28.
It seems that visitors can take pictures of themselves next to Kaonashi.

It is a pity that the nearby Kumamoto Castle is undergoing restoration, but if you happen to be in the area, please do not hesitate to visit this venue. It is a beautiful castle.

As an added bonus, Kumamoto Castle’s official Twitter feed features tweets about Ghibli Park and the Ghibli exhibition.

Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition Hyogo (KOBE) Venue: 4/15 – 6/25
The Hyogo (KOBE) venue will be open from 4/15 to 6/25.
Avoid 4/29 to 5/5 as it is a consecutive holiday in Japan ^^;
Located near the scenic port of Kobe, enjoy the city and its gourmet food, where foreign and Japanese cultures coexist.
You can also taste Kobe beef, which Iniesta and Bojan have introduced on SNS.

Access Map for Hyogo Venue
My personal recommendation is Nankinmachi, about 500 meters west of the venue. Located in a smaller Chinese town than Yokohama, Lao Xiang Ji’s pork buns are very popular.
Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition Yamaguchi Venue: 7/15 – 9/24
The Yamaguchi venue will be open from July 15 to September 24.
Although it is a little far from Yamaguchi City, you should visit the Hagi and Tsuwano areas (an area straddling Yamaguchi and Shimane Prefectures), which are also known as “Little Kyoto.
In the Hagi area, you will also find the ruins of the ironworks that served as the model for the tatara fields in the movie “Princess Mononoke.
There are also too many wonderful hot springs to introduce…(^^) I’d rather go there myself.

And the second of the alternatives.
It is a bit geeky, but the content of the exhibition focuses on the producers of Studio Ghibli. Access map for Yamaguchi venue
Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition *to be held in Iwate Prefecture through May 24
The “Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition” is expected to be a rather small exhibition, but it appears to feature the history of Toshio Suzuki, producer of Studio Ghibli, and his works.
The content of the exhibition is recommended for those who understand Japanese…
The exhibition will be held from April 7 to May 24, 2023, which is about a month and a half.
However, there will be an exhibition of kaonashi, which is recommended for those who want to enjoy the exhibition in conjunction with the cherry blossoms blooming in northern Japan at this time of the year.
As can be said about Japanese exhibitions in general, merchandise sales = souvenirs are plentiful.
I think you can expect good sales of goods at this exhibition as well.
Access Map for Iwate Venue
The venue is located at Iwate Kenmin Kaikan in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture.
If the event had been held in winter, the snowy scenery would have been one of the pleasures of the event.
If you go to Morioka City, I recommend wanko soba.
In spring, Iwate has beautiful fresh greenery, check it out if you are interested.
Fun in the Free Area of Expo 2005 Aichi Commemorative Park [separate article].
In fact, you can have quite a bit of fun in the “free” area of the Expo 2005 Aichi Prefecture Commemorative Park, where Ghibli Park is located.
I would like to introduce this item in a separate section as a [permanent version] because it will become lengthy.
When I visited Ghibli Park for other purposes of photography, it seemed to me that it would be possible to enjoy Ghibli Park without necessarily entering the paid areas of Ghibli Park.
Maybe I think so because I entered the park even once, but there are spots where you can feel the Ghibli works without having to seek for a tremendous number of souvenirs and well-known impersonation spots for photography.
Added information in April 2023
For information on the free areas of the Expo 2005 Aichi Japan Commemorative Park, we have written the following articles.
