Searching for things to do in Japan that are a little off the beaten track is near impossible. We stumbled across this cool site called Voyagin where you can attend workshops or tours with English speaking hosts. From doing your makeup like a Harajuku girl, taking a traditional cooking class and tuning up your ninja skills.
Whilst you can purchase tickets to the Studio Ghibli Museum from its official website you may find buying from Voyagin just a little easier.
I am so excited for our little adventure to Mitaki for a dose of Ghibli wonderment, I am jumping up and down like Totoro!
