At Umeda station is a little hidden piece of Ghibli paradise…
Whether you grew up with Princess Mononoke or you’re more around Ponyo’s age, Studio Ghibli films are beautiful creations of art which make us all a little nostalgic when we watch them. Donguri Kyowakoku is a store entirely dedicated to Studio Ghibli merchandise. Decorated in typical Ghibli fashion, you feel like you’re walking into a little house in an enchanted forest with European design elements. Think Kiki’s Delivery Service and you’ll know what we mean.
Full of great souvenirs and of course gifts to yourself as well, you can find all sorts of things here, from obento boxes, to photo frames, to puzzles and trinkets, and of course plush versions of your favourite characters like Totoro!
This is a charming location that anyone will love, even people who haven’t watched a Ghibli film.
