Studio Ghibli Theme Park Set To Launch In 2022


Studio Ghibli Theme Park Set To Launch In 2022

Design and financial details are ongoing!

Officially, the Aichi Prefectural Government has announced more detailed plans for the new Studio Ghibli theme park’s layout and features, with 5 Zones. The newly-developed park will be set across over 200 hectares of land and will be located in Aichi’s Expo Park in Nagoya, Japan.

#1 The Youth Hill Area – ‘Seishun No Oka Area’

The park is set to feature a giant steam-punk elevator encouraged by Howl’s Moving Castle and accordingly, a short stroll will lead guests to a full-sized replica of the Chikyuya antique shop.

#2 Ghibli Large Warehouse Area – ‘Ghibli Dai Soko Area’

Here’s the Exhibition room, playing area and surroundings, shops, cafes as well as the video exhibition room.

#3 Dondoko Forest Area – ‘Dondoko Mori Area’

This is the existing real-life version of Mei and Satsuki’s home from My Neighbor Totoro. The ‘Showa-era landscape’ (the surrounding) will be replicating the Totoro’s hometown and the forest area is similar to Totoro’s Forest in Saitama.

#4 Mononoke’s Village Area – ‘Mononoke No Sato Area’

This area is dedicated to Princess Mononoke, the Ashitaka’s Emishi tribe and the Tatara Irontown.

#5 Witches Valley Area – ‘Majo No Tani Area’

Rest surroundings and restaurants will be set up in this area. Motivated by the wasteland of Howl’s Moving Castle, it’s also inspired by the beautiful residence from Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Nevertheless, the park is finalizing its design and financial details. The construction for the first three areas will begin in 2020 while the final two areas will be developed in 2021.

It’s anticipated that the development will move forward at a steady pace with plans to launch the first three areas in the Autumn of 2022 while the Mononoke’s village, as well as the Witches Valley, is scheduled for opening in 2023.
