Studio Ghibli Theme Park Opening In 2022. What To Expect? [Updates]

UPDATE 02/2022:

Many fans are worried about the COVID-19's effect on the development of this theme park. Here we are with the good news that the Studio Ghibli Amusement Theme Park will be open to the public on Nov 1, 2022. Out of the five areas, three will be available in their launch while the last two areas will be open in 2023.

Read on to learn more:

Japan is home to many tourist spots. Apart from the clean, orderly, and eccentric vibe, the country offers many exciting places people can't find elsewhere.

When an anime lover decides to take a trip to Japan, there are specific destinations they probably want to visit. With lots of videos going around Facebook today about Japan's food, culture, and travel, they might have included the featured destinations in their itinerary.

The Studio Ghibli museum is a must-see for every otaku and anime fan. It showcases the immortalization of various characters and notable scenes from Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli collection. For many, it's a significant milestone to achieve in life. Don't die without seeing this trendy place!

There's another reason why Hayao Miyazaki fans must rejoice. Several anime news sites reported earlier that the new Studio Ghibli theme park would rise in Nagakute City, 90 miles east of Kyoto, Central Japan, in 2020. However, there's a slight delay in its development, moving its launch in 2022.

Although a setback, this could mean more fantastic Studio Ghibli treats to everyone who watched many films of this production company.

The said park measured a 500-acre lot. In line with the regional government representative, Studio Ghibli intends to build the place without diminishing the environment as they would like visitors to enjoy nature while feasting their eyes on many sceneries of this upcoming amusement.

As of this time, we're pretty sure that all fans of this Japanese animation studio were "Spirited Away" upon hearing that this magical world of Studio Ghibli films will reanimate in the real world.

A basic plan of the park has been released, showing some of the attractions, rides, and forest trails to be included. In addition to that, the theme park will consist of the iconic European-style brick buildings we saw in Ghibli movies, spiders, statues of boars, and other creatures that elicit the feeling of Japan's unique and mystical scenes.

The news about the theme park comes shortly after the death of Isao Takahata, known as the unspoken hero of Studio Ghibli. Takahata is one of the founders of Ghibli legend. He was responsible for films like 'Grave of The Fireflies' and the charming animated "Tale of Princess Kaguya."

Takahata may not reach the global status Miyazaki enjoys, but he played an essential part in Ghibli's success. Optimistically, the theme park was not only made to honor Miyazaki's works as one of the most successful animators of all time but also for Takahata's works and contribution to the studio.

Following the spectacular planned structure of Studio Ghibli, the regional government is still uncertain on how much would be the cost of this project. The lineup of architects and other people who will work on the site is not yet confirmed. Still, people are already looking forward to the completion and opening of this theme park.

Below, we list down ten activities and other things to expect in the upcoming Studio Ghibli theme park that everyone awaits.

About Studio Ghibli Theme Park

Studio Ghibli is a famous Japanese animation film studio based in Koganei Tokyo, Japan. Known for its anime feature films and TV commercials that captivated the audience with stunning character stories and masterful storytelling, everyone around the world can't get enough of it.

Spirited Away, a film produced by this studio founded by Hayao Miyazaki, Toshio Suzuki, and Isao Takahata, won an Oscar Award for the best-animated movie in 2003. Studio Ghibli has been responsible for empowering animated films in history.

The name Studio Ghibli came from the Arabic name, which means "hot Sahara wind." The founders coined this term as they want to blow a new wind through the anime industry. Also, the production company gave the name "Ghibli," the name of an Italian warplane. It represented Hayao Miyazaki's love for planes and Italy.

Last April 25, 2018, it was announced that the Ghibli Studio theme park was scheduled to open in Japan in 2022. The world-famous creations of the award-winning film company will rise on the grounds of Aichi Commemorative Park in Nagakute City.
