Studio Ghibli was founded in 1985 by renowned animation directors Isao Takahata (高畑勳) and Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎駿). The Ghibli’s animation films have been well received by worldwide audience, have won awards in various international film festivals and become a beloved part of popular culture.

As opposed to the widely used digital technology in arts nowadays, Takahata and Miyazaki insisted on producing their animation films basically by the traditional method of hand-drawn animation. This exhibition comprises over 1,300 items of layout designs selected from works by Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki throughout their careers. The whole history of Studio Ghibli layout production is on display, ranging from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind to the latest released The Wind Rises and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. Exhibits are drawn from the company’s popular major works including Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea.
