• A look at the Studio Ghibli Exhibition in Roppongi Hills

    Studio Ghibli is most certainly Japan’s most well known animation studio. Recently, they have opened an exhibition at the  Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. It is called the  “Ghibli Exhibition ~ From Nausicaa to their newest work, The Red Turtle”, and Rocket News 24’s Japanese correspondent, Mr. Sato, and his friend, Tadashi Nema, recently visited the exhibition, and gave everyone a tour of the area.

    One of the centerpieces of the exhibition is a miniature version of the airship from Castle in the Sky, and even though it’s not as big as the real thing, it is still pretty impressive none the less.

    And it won’t be a Ghibli exhibition without Totoro, right? He seems to be running a bar there…

    And then there are those black soot sprites from My Neighbor Totoro as well.

    There is also a huge collection of posters, illustrations, and other promotional material used for the studio’s many films.

    There is also the life-size version of Ponyo’s fishy little star as well.

    At the end of the exhibition, guests are greeted with the word, Oowari, or “The End”, which is a very familiar message shown at the end of every Ghibli movie.


    The exhibition, called  “Ghibli Exhibition ~ From Nausicaa to their newest work, The Red Turtle”, will be held from 7 July until 11 September 2016. It will also be featuring other Ghibli classics, like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and many more. Fans will get a chance to understand the legendary studio’s history, as well as feature some materials and more.
