In 2022, Japan will host a new theme park created by the founder of Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki. The 200-hectare land will be converted into a series of fantastic worlds of Hayao Miyazaki will include rides My neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke.

Only a draft of how the park will look like has been published and early models have a Victorian era house of Howl's Moving Castle, surrounded by trees and a Princess Mononoke village, surrounded by forest paths and green spaces. The theme park also promises the Big Ghibli Playhouse, with an awesome children's play area, space to have some exhibitions andfor film screenings there will be some small movie theaters.

The Japanese government announced that the new attraction would be located in the prefecture of Aichi near Nagoya that would follow the famous Ghibli Museum on the outskirts of Tokyo.

Studio Ghibli is one of the most famous animation studios in the world. Miyazaki, the brains behind 'Princess Mononoke' and 'Castle In The Sky', is considered one of the most successful artists of his time. His film, 'Spirited Away', won the Academy Award for Best Animated Film in 2003, the first Japanese film to receive such a prize. Miyazaki retired in 2014, marking a sad moment for the animation world. However, last year, he announced he was about to make a final film, Goro the Caterpillar, which will be released in 2019 or in 2020.
