A few months ago we showed you the first photos of Ghibli Park, the famous theme park of Studio Ghibli currently under construction. Today, 2 June 2020, the historic construction company Kajima Corporation has finally revealed new details, including the opening date to the public and information on colossal investment plan.
At the top of the article you can first take a look at the concept art of the attractions and the area in which work is taking place, or a giant park located in Nagoya, the capital of Aichi prefecture on the island of Honshu, Japan.
The construction company revealed that the estimate for the construction of the first three areas of Ghibli Park it required an outlay of 10,657,900,000 yen (about 100 million euros), a figure that apparently would have been accepted by Miyazaki's study. As you can see from the clip, the construction site has already been completed, while the actual works will begin in July. Kajima Corporation has confirmed that there will be no delay due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and that work on the first three attractions will be completed in the second half of 2022, with opening date scheduled for the autumn of the same year.
Studio Ghibli revealed that the park will consist of five gigantic areas: the Ghibli Department Store, the Youth Zone, the Dondoko Forest, the Mononoke Village and the Valley of the Witches. The first three will be open from the opening, while the Village of Mononoke and the Valley of the Witches will presumably arrive between 2023 and 2024.
