The Studio Ghibli museum closed its doors back in March to slow the spread of COVID-19, but its break from the public will soon be over. In July, it opened to residents of the town in which it’s based, Mitaka City. Now, with new coronavirus safety measures being put in place, the museum is preparing to open to everyone else in Japan this September.
The new measures include making masks mandatory, taking temperature prior to entry, and switching to electronic tickets, among others. Ticket sales are also being limited along with the amount of people allowed in a building at one time.
Tickets go on sale for the first half of September on August 25, with the second half going on sale in early September. At the moment, tickets are only available within Japan and via Lawson’s ticketing system.
