Beginning in 2015 at the Expo 2005 Aichi Commemorative Park, the Ghibli Expo exhibition received a great response, and travelled to 11 venues throughout the country over the next five years, upgrading with additional fascinating exhibits along the way. This summer, the exhibition comes home with a full array of exhibits for its conclusion. As next year's scheduled opening of Ghibli Park draws nearer, the exhibition will look back on around 35 years of Studio Ghibli with a wealth of material including nostalgic movie posters and merchandise, and unreleased original artwork.
Having grown to five times the area of the original exhibition, this Ghibli Expo will feature several exhibits making their first appearance in Aichi, including the enormous airship from Castle in the Sky, plus Ghibli Park-related materials. Don't miss it.
