Studio Ghibli will be holding a new exhibition in Tokyo where visitors can walk through some of the studio’s most iconic films like Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Don’t miss out on all the details of this new special event from the famous and beloved Japanese animation studio.
Studio Ghibli will join forces with Nippon TV for a new “Friday Roadshow and Studio Ghibli Exhibition” taking place in Tokyo this summer. The event will also be dedicated to the Friday Roadshow programming block, where Hayao Miyazaki’s films have been shown on open television for several decades. The truth is that this block is already considered a tradition among the Japanese, and recognizing this is part of the intention of the exhibition.
Here visitors will be able to take photos at locations recreating Studio Ghibli movie posters, as well as marvel at the studio’s giant magic lantern tower. In addition, there will also be several life-size sculptures by Takayuki Takei inspired by Nausicaa from the Valley of the Wind. Among them are a life-size recreation of Omu, but other creatures from the film will also be found.
Want to get to the Studio Ghibli exhibition? The event will take place from June 29 to September 24 at the TERRADA G Warehouse in Tennozu, Tokyo. From October 7 this year to January 28, 2024, it will be at the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art.
Considered Hayao Miyazaki’s last film, Studio Ghibli will premiere in 2023. After a long and patient five-year production that began in 2017, the film, which will be based on Genzaburo Yoshino’s novel Kimitachi wa Dou Ikiru ka (How Do You Live?), will hit the big screen sometime this year.
