The animation studio behind ‘Totoro’ and ‘Spirited Away’ is opening a theme park in Japan in 2022

FANS OF HAYAO MIYAZAKI rejoice — the celebrated Japaneseanimator is getting a theme park in his honor. Set to open in 2022, the Studio Ghibli theme park will celebrate the creator of some of the world’s most beloved animated masterpieces, as reported by Bored Panda. The park will open on the site of the Expo 2005 Aichi Commemorative Park in Nagakute city, close to Nagoya.

Notable features of the Studio Ghibli theme park will include a replica of the antique shop from Miyazaki’s smash hit Whisper of the Heart and a gate area built to look just like the set of Howl’s Moving Castle. The grounds will include five separate areas, each resembling a different piece of Miyazaki’s work. They will aptly be named Youth Hill, Ghibli Large Warehouse, Mononoke’s Village, Dondoko Forest, and Witches’ Valley. There will, of course, be a theater onsite for visitors to get their fix of Miyazaki classics, along with event spaces and what is certain to be among the world’s most epic gift shops.
