Studio Ghibli Souvenir Samples

Studio Ghibli is a much loved animation studio cranking out such beautiful classics as My Neighbour Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle and the Academy Award winning, Spirited Away. If you happen to visit Japan, then a visit to the Studio Ghibli Museum is a must. You’ll be able to see exclusive artwork and other treasures that normally aren’t seen outside of Japan.

And then of course, there’s the souvenirs. Most people like to bring home a little trinket of their visit and thanks to Rocket News, we can show you a sample of what’s on offer.

Has anyone been lucky enough to go to the Ghibli Museum? We’d love to see pics of your goodies that you picked up there!
