From playful My Neighbour Totoro, to heavily environmental Princess Mononoke, to Oscar Award-winning Spirited Away, every Ghibli film tugs on the heartstrings and inspires hope and wonder, joy and astonishment, and a deep empathy for the world and all beings within it.
As of November 1st 2022, you can step into the magical world of Studio Ghibli in a brand new way!
Welcome to the world’s first Ghibli Park.
Here, you can visit Satsuki and Mei’s house from Totoro, see the whimsical antique shop in Whisper of the Heart and The Cat Returns, as well as explore some of the scenery from Laputa: Castle in the Sky and Howl’s Moving Castle.
In 2023, there’s more to be revealed, with plans to open Mononoke Village: a recreation of Irontown with a life-size statue of Okkoto (the ancient Boar God), as well as Valley of Witches, where you can see and buy pastries from the bakery in Kiki’s Delivery Service and her gorgeous childhood home, as well as explore a 16 metre replica of the titular Howl’s Moving Castle.
Located in Aichi Prefecture, just outside of Nagoya.
