One of the reasons I went to Tokyo was to visit the Ghibli Museum. The museum ticket included a pass to view one of Miyazaki's short movies. Luckily they played "Hoshi wo katta hi" that day which was an amazing experience. Like every Miyazaki movie, he is able to pull off flawless character development in 16 minutes alongside his signature "goosebump moments". The animation & music mixed very well together, also cool was the dedicated movie theater for Ghibli movies the whole theater had a Ghibli atmosphere without spoiling too much. If you are planning a trip to Japan don't forget to stop by the Ghibli Museum, but remember to get your museum tickets before you go to Japan, they are extremely hard to come by!! It is a must see! Do note that the movie is in Japanese without subtitles.
