Studio Ghibli Theme Park Releases First Booking Details

While plenty of anime franchises have had sections of Universal Studios Japan dedicated to them in the past, with the likes of One Piece, Attack on Titan, and Neon Genesis Evangelion being just a few of said examples, Studio Ghibli is looking to break the mold with its own theme park that will help bring some of its classic works to life. Now, Ghibli has released its first booking details, giving fans an idea of how much it will cost to enter the theme park that will have dedicated areas bringing the likes of My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and more to life.

In a recently released breakdown, the upcoming theme park is planning to sell tickets this August that will have adults being able to attend the park as a whole for around $30 USD on weekdays and $35 USD on weekends. On top of these overall prices, park-goers can also gain entry into some unique parts of the park, with Ghibli’s Grand Warehouse being a museum-like attraction, and Dodoko Forest and Hill of Youth being forged to recreate locales from My Neighbor Totoro, Whisper of the Heart, and The Cat Returns. The prices for these individual attractions can be seen below:

Currently, Studio Ghibli is working on a new movie that is being touted as the last from legendary director Hayao Miyazaki in “How Do You Live“, which will adapt a popular Japanese novel. Ghibli’s Theme Park is set to open its doors this fall and it will be interesting to see how the first theme park entirely dedicated to anime will hold up, especially considering how beloved Studio Ghibli has become around the world.
