If you have ever watched Totoro, you will definitely want to visit this house.

    First of all, entrance to Satsuki and Mei's house does require tickets. These cannot be purchased on the day, but need to booked in advance. The easiest way is to get someone you know in Japan to go to Lawson (convenience store), and use the Loppi machine to get you a ticket. If you don't have that option available, you can still try go to Lawson once you are in Japan, and try and book a ticket yourself using Roppi. The tickets cost ¥510 for a half hour tour of the house.
