Continued from Day 1: Evangelion Store Tokyo 01 and Shibuya.
I love Mitaka no Mori Ghibli Museum, but I have always had one major gripe with them: no adult-sized Nekobus 😦 When the museum announced that it was holding a limited exhibit entitled “Nekobus Kara Mita Fuukei-ten” (or “Views from the Catbus”) that was open to fans of all ages, I jumped at the chance to cross off one thing off my bucket list.
After a side trip to the museum’s theatre for a short movie, it was a mad dash to the second floor to finally meet the adult-sized Nekobus in its furry public transport glory ❤ That was not the only treat from the exhibit — there were also actual-sized dioramas from scenes in “Spirited Away” and “Howl’s Moving Castle” that you could play around in like you were part of the movie.
This might have been a perfect visit — the weather was great, the crowd was small, the exhibits were fun, and I had a really great time. Unfortunately, we just missed my other bucket list item — a screening of “Mei to Ko-Nekobus” (“Mei and the Kittenbus”). We got “Koro no Oosampo” (“Koro’s Great Adventure”) instead which I already saw years back. Bummer 😐
But I figured I was just nitpicking, so I’ll just use that as an excuse to visit the museum again. Maybe this time I’ll catch the elusive Kittenbus ❤
