Chihiro runs down the staircase just like when Lupin ran down the rooftop.
The scene in which Chihiro looks up at the radish spirit in the elevator, he narrows his eyes at her and grunts, replicating the bus stop scene with Satsuki and Totoro. When Chihiro is riding Haku back to bath house, she mentions how she almost drowned in a river and subsequently lost her pink shoe, this is the same shoe that was believed to be Mei's in 'Tonari no Totoro. Also, the soot gremlins appear in both films.
In a scene where Sen is speaking to Granny in her house there is a wood-cut picture in the background of a witch, broom and black cat. A reference to "Kiki's Delivery Service"

Referenced by name.
A subway train is the only way to go between worlds. Also, the moment when Haku stands up to that Ubaba lady, it looks JUST like NEO standing before the Deus Ex Machina in the machine city, just flopped. note how Ubaba is mostly a big head, and how she charges at Haku with hair swirling around Haku while he remains calm.
