Stop 2Valley of Witches

The largest outdoor area in Ghibli Park is Valley of Witches where witchy buildings from multiple Ghibli Movies such as “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” “Howl’s Moving Castle,” and “Earwig and the Witch” have been recreated (these buildings cannot be entered with the Ghibli Park O-Sampo Pass). This is also the only area in the park that offers rides! For an additional cost, children can enjoy the Flying Machine from “Castle in the Sky” and both adults and children can ride a carousel decorated with vehicles, animals, and characters from many of Studio Ghibli’s films.

Stop 3Dondoko Forest

The home of Totoro and his neighbors Satsuki and Mei. While you can’t visit the inside of the house, it is already quite interesting to see from the outside. Don’t forget to stop by Dondoko Shop to pick up some lucky amulets!

Stop 4Hill of Youth

This area is for hardcore Ghibli fans as it is themed after some lesser-known movies such as “The Cat Returns” and “Whisper of the Heart”.

Stop 5Mononoke Village

Mononoke Village is the smallest of Ghibli Park’s five areas. Here you will find the world of Princess Mononoke waiting for you. Included are some sculptures and a house inspired by the Tataraba Iron Town building from the movie.

Where You'll Be
Meet Your Host

Erica Hara

Meet Erica, an American whose love affair with Studio Ghibli began with the mesmerizing experience of seeing “Princess Mononoke” in theaters. From that moment on, she was captivated by the enchanting worlds and compelling narratives crafted by Studio Ghibli.

Erica’s passion for Japanese culture and history knows no bounds. In an attempt to meld her three favorite things: history, food, and talking, she joined Nagoya is not boring as a tour guide back in the summer of 2023. Most days she can be found expounding on the superiority of red miso in cuisine and regaling guests with stories of the Nagoya of old.
