A sneak peek inside Japan's upcoming Studio Ghibli Theme Park

Live Japan

Studio Ghibli's theme park in Aichi Prefecture is finally opening to the public this November, but many of the details have been kept under wraps - until today!

Today, Ghibli Park released a number of exciting photos of what you can expect inside the park. If you're a fan of the magical worlds created by Hayao Miyazaki, you're going to be super excited!

What is Ghibli Park?

Ghibli Park is unlike many other theme parks in that it won't have any major attractions or rides. Instead, it's a place you can stroll around and discover things at your own pace.

On November 1, three areas will be opening: Ghibli's Grand Warehouse, the Hill of Youth, and the Dondoko Forest.

From robot soldiers to Catbus, there's plenty to enjoy. Let's check out some of the newly released highlights!

Video Exhibition Room Orionza

With around 170 seats, here you can enjoy a screening of all 10 short animated films from the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka.

1. Special Exhibit: Exhibition of famous Ghibli scenes

This is a hands-on exhibit that allows visitors to become the characters of Ghibli's works and immerse themselves in famous scenes. Thirteen works and fourteen corners are on display. In "Spirited Away," visitors can take a ride on a mysterious train running on the sea and sit next to Kaonashi and pretend to be 'Spirited Away.'

2. Special Exhibit: Bigger edition of "Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals"!

*From the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka 2017 exhibition "Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals"

This is a revised and expanded edition of the exhibition "Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals," which was held to great acclaim at the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka.

Why do the foods in Ghibli films look so delicious? This exhibition unravels the secrets. New materials from "Spirited Away," "From Up On Poppy Hill," and "Earwig and the Witch" have been added, and the kitchen of Poppy Villa has been recreated.

3. Shop & Cafe

In addition to all kinds of merch from the Ghibli films, this store offers a selection of original Ghibli Park products, too. Enjoy making warm memories at Ghibli Park - and take some of it back home with you, too!

All kinds of cool places to explore!
