Studio Ghibli is arguably one of the greatest anime-studios of all time… And for good reason. In terms of breaking japanese animation into the global market, no team has been able to do it better.

Sure, its movie magic comes from brilliant minds like Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata, and Toshio Suzuki… But the truth of it all rests within Japan itself.

Most Studio Ghibli films are inspired by real-life Japanese locations… These 3 happen to be our favorite:

Princess Mononoke

Yakushima (Kagoshima Pref.)

Revered by in Japan as a “natural wonder”, the island is known for its hiking, hot springs and cedar trees.

It’s no surprise it was the inspiration behind Princess Mononoke – the island’s moody rainforests are full of fairytale-like trees with twisted moss-covered roots. You expect animals in this forest to sh*t glitter, to be frank.
