Journey to Miyazaki’s Fantastic Worlds at Ghibli Park


Among the walk-through environments you’ll be able to find iconic features like a fuzzy Catbus, to sit and pose in with the littles and not-so-littles. I know I’d squeeze into that bus.


There’s also this incredible Spirted Away room in what looks to be a recreation of the bath house.


And of course there’s a photo-op with No Face too!


Here’s a sneak peek at merch that we’re probably going to have to get a checked bag to bring back with us, but it looks so worth it.


The theme park is located within Aichi Expo Memorial Park near Nagoya, about 200 miles from Tokyo. Tickets for the opening, which were offered in a lottery, are selling out quick for folks in Japan. If you’re planning on visiting, borders are set to open soon, but select bookings through travel planners are available if approved by the Japanese tourism board. We’re okay waiting until the Howl’s Moving Castle section opens as part of future phases.
