The theme park will be built on a 500-acre lot that was the site of the World’s Fair in 2005, allowing the visitors to enjoy open spaces and nature.

There is already a replica of the house from ‘My Neighbor Totoro’ built in the park.

The park will feature natural spaces and trails and the regional government representatives say they aim to build the park “without impairing the function and the natural environment”.

The European-style brick buildings seen in the films will also be built in the park.

Back in 2001, a Ghibli Museum was opened in Tokyo and this new theme park aims to follow its success.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
