Studio Ghibli Grand Exhibition: From Nausicaä to Marnie

30 years have passed since the release of "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" and the creation of Studio Ghibli in 1984, and "When Marnie was There" in 2014. Discover a retrospective of the works of a lifetime at Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, on display summer 2018.

If you weren't able to book a ticket for the Ghibli Museum before your trip to Japan, here's an exhibition that might comfort you! From July 21st to September 24th 2018, on the third floor of the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, a special Studio Ghibli exhibition is being held, with numerous posters, boards, exclusive pieces and other production materials from the Miyazaki and Takahata studios on display.

Buy your tickets for the Ghibli Museum with Voyagin.

Just like at the museum near Tokyo, you'll be greeted by Totoro, this time from behind a counter. You'll then continue on to discover various posters and commercials that were broadcast to promote the films over the years, before entering a room filled floor to ceiling with related goods and products. It's an impressive collection of rare items you'll want to take home!

"My Neighbor Totoro" remains one of the favorite Studio Ghibli films, so it's no surprise that you'll come face to face with a full size replica of the famous "cat-bus" during the exhibition! Finally, there's an impressive room that holds all the flying boats from the film "Castle in the Sky", suspended above your head.

Of course, you'll be able to bring back a souvenir of your visit to the Ghibli universe. A list of available goods can be found on the official Japanese site.
