The Theme Park
The Studio Ghibli Theme Park is located in the Expo 2005 Aichi Commemorative Park in Nagakute city, near Nagoya, Japan. The entire amusement park will be divided into five interesting Studio Ghibli-themed areas, namely- Hill of Youth from Howl’s Moving Castle, Ghibli’s Grand Warehouse, Valley of Witches from Earwig and the Witch, Mononoke’s Village from Princess Mononoke, and Dondoko Forest from My Neighbor Totoro. Ghibli’s Grand Warehouse building is a vast arcade of 2.4 acres, which is nearly four times the floor space of the existing Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. The Catbus and a playroom with a sleeping Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro, and The Bathhouse Yubaba from Spirited Away are special additions to the park.
Bringing classic anime film moments to life, the Grand Warehouse recreates a scene from each of Studio Ghibli’s 13 iconic films. It will also house a cinema, playgrounds, shops, a café, exhibits related to movies, and a dining experience with a popular exhibition on Ghibli foods. The 170-seater theater is located in the Mitaka Forest Ghibli area and will present exclusive short films directed by Hayao Miyazaki, and released exclusively at the Tokyo Ghibli Museum. With the entrance at the Hill of Youth, this magical Ghibli world pays homage to iconic Studio Ghibli films like Laputa: Castle in the Sky, The Cat Returns, Whisper of the Heart, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and many more.
