When the park opens, people will be able to visit Ghibli’s Grand Warehouse, Hill of Youth, and Dondoko Forest. The warehouse will showcase artifacts from various Studio Ghibli movies, and the Hill of Youth will have a reproduction of the World Emporium antique shop from Whisper of the Heart.

Meanwhile, the Dondoko Forest will let people visit the world of My Neighbor Totoro. The forest will feature landmarks from the famous title, such as Satsuki and Mei’s House. It will also have a Dondoko-do playground attraction modeled after Totoro.

The second phase will add the Valley of Witches and the Princess Mononoke-inspired Mononoke Village to Ghibli Park. While the English page had these facilities listed as “TBA,” the Japanese version listed the 2023 fiscal year as an estimated schedule for the additional spots. That would range from April 2023 to March 2024.

Out of the concept images revealed so far, Satsuki and Mei’s House is the only spot that uses real photography. The house is the first, finished attraction within the park. Studio Ghibli and the Aichi Tourism Bureau highlighted the house in a promotional video published earlier in January 2022.

Ghibli Park will officially open in Aichi, Japan, on November 1, 2022.
