The exhibition commemorating the opening of Ghibli Park “Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition” Aichi venue finally opens!
On November 1, 2022, the park facility “Ghibli Park” that expresses the world view of Studio Ghibli works will open in the “Aichi Expo Memorial Park” in Nagakute City, Aichi Prefecture. To commemorate the opening of the park, the “Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition” will be held at the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art from October 29th (Sat) to introduce the behind the scenes of the birth of Ghibli Park in the same place in Aichi.
Prior to the opening, the opening ceremony, preview, and talk event were held at the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art on Friday, October 28th. The opening ceremony was attended by Hideaki Omura, Governor of Aichi Prefecture, and Uichiro Oshima, President and CEO of Chunichi Shimbun, on behalf of the organizers. The president and director Goro Miyazaki, who directs the production site of Ghibli Park,
participated. Before the opening ceremony, a talk event was held by director Goro Miyazaki.
Talk event report
In the “Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition”, we will look back on the work and works of director Goro Miyazaki, who directs the production site of Ghibli Park, and show how he thinks, draws, and creates Ghibli Park. I will introduce it with the materials. At today’s talk event, Director Goro Miyazaki took the stage and talked about the highlights of “Ghibli Park and the Ghibli Exhibition” and Ghibli Park, which will open in four days.
-In the “Ghibli Park and Ghibli Exhibition”, you can see the production process that cannot be seen at Ghibli Park. What left an impression on you?
“Satsuki and Mei’s House” was built for the 2005 Aichi Expo, and was the catalyst for Ghibli Park. In that sense, it’s a starting point. And the largest facility in Ghibli Park, “Ghibli’s Great Warehouse”. Since the original heated pool was refurbished, it was difficult to see what kind of shape it should be, but we changed the use (to Ghibli’s large warehouse) while keeping the building that was a heated pool. The most difficult part, including the equipment side, was the part where we were able to develop the equipment. It would be easier to clear the land and build a new one, but I didn’t want to do that. Since it was decided from the beginning that we would make use of what already existed, we dared to renovate it.
―Among the items on display at the exhibition, what is the most memorable? “Tales from Earthsea” was the movie that got me involved in animated films, but “From Up on Poppy Hill” was the one that got me thinking about making an animated movie again. At that time, I had a lot of hardships, and I had a lot to think about. While it’s a love story about high school students, it’s also about the demolition of an old building. When you’re young, you can see anything new, but as you make works like this, and as you get older, I think it’s not good to easily destroy or change the shape. This was also the impetus for creating the “Ghibli’s Great Warehouse”.
―I understand that you are also exhibiting things that are unique to Nagoya. Sugakiya’s cup ramen is on display at the “Aya and the Witch” exhibition. Actually, the production period for “Aya and the Witch” overlapped with the production period for Ghibli Park, and it was progressing at the same time. It felt like I was creating a work while eating Sugakiya’s ramen. By the way, I think Neapolitan rice balls are the most delicious among Ghibli Park’s gourmet foods. There is also a pizza with miso cutlet on the cafe, which is surprisingly recommended. ―Finally, please give a message to the people of Aichi Prefecture who are looking forward to the opening of Ghibli Park.
While I hope that the park will open soon, I am also worried about whether people will really come and enjoy it. People think of it as a theme park, but I’ve always wanted it to be a park. I think that parks are first and foremost for the local people, so I want them to be loved by the people of Aichi more than anyone else. I would be happy if you could visit the exhibition with the thought of taking a peek at “.
Opening ceremony (summary of the organizer’s greeting)
■ Hideaki Omura (Governor of Aichi Prefecture)
This time, we received an offer from the sponsor, Chunichi Shimbun, to hold this exhibition as a “Ghibli Park Making Exhibition”. This exhibition is an exhibition where you can learn about the behind the scenes of Ghibli Park, which has been created through repeated trial and error. I would like everyone to see both Ghibli Park and the exhibition, and enjoy it, including preparation and review.
■ Uichiro Oshima (President and CEO of Chunichi Shimbun)
In the first half of this exhibition, we will introduce the buildings and animated films that director Goro Miyazaki has worked on, with sketches and photographs, to give you a sense of the thoughts and techniques that go into his works. In the second half, I would like to unravel the behind the scenes of Ghibli Park’s philosophy and production, how I tried to express the world of Studio Ghibli in Ghibli Park. We hope that through this exhibition, you will further raise your expectations for Ghibli Park.
Koji Hoshino (Chairman and President of Studio Ghibli Co., Ltd.) In the past three years, we have been in a very difficult situation due to the corona disaster, but there was a great joy even in the midst of it. Hayao Miyazaki’s feature-length animated film is nearing completion, and Ghibli Park is set to open soon. And I feel that the fact that this exhibition, which will open this time, will be held at this timing, when we are firmly facing and overcoming the corona disaster, has a heavy meaning. The things you can experience at this exhibition are as much fun as at Ghibli Park. I would be very happy if many people, especially the locals, could visit this limited two-month exhibition.
