Studio Ghibli Theme Park Coming Soon!

Studio Ghibli, an award-winning japanese animation film studio that created popular films like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro etc has taken the world by storm ever since. It’s no surprise that they have millions of fans around the world. With talks about about a theme park coming out last 2017, fans have been eagerly waiting for more news regarding this. And finally, the park concept art and design along with the location has been revealed by the Aichi Prefectural Goverment website. The park has a tentative name of Ghibli Park which is set to open 2022!

Ghibli Park will be constructed within the Expo 2005 Aichi Commemorative Park in Nakagute City which was also made into the replica of My Neighbor Totoro‘s house during a fair in the same year. Some concept art shows more exciting things in store for fans – like a 19th century themed area similar to Howl’s Moving Castle‘s setting, European architecture, and Princess Mononoke’s Emishi Village.  And of course, we’re expecting more iconic Ghibli locations in the park.
