Ghibli Park, a big theme park devoted wholly to the works of Japanese animation giants Studio Ghibli, opened late final yr. And it hasn’t taken lengthy for folks to begin being weirdos with a few of the statues discovered on the park, prompting calls from native authorities to please cease.
As CNN report, final week the Governor of Aichi Prefecture (the place the park is situated), Hideaki Ōmura, held a press convention, and mentioned the topic of adults taking “lewd” images with sights. Appears not solely have grown-ass males been taking inappropriate pics with statues of Ghibli characters, however they’ve been sharing them on social media, resulting in reactions that aren’t in step with the strict family-first vibes Ōmura would have been anticipating.
“Frankly talking, posting images like that on social media may be very inappropriate”, Ōmura mentioned. “From adults to youngsters, folks go to Ghibli Park to enter the Ghibli world and revel in themselves. Clearly this motion disturbed many individuals,” he added, saying that native authorities have since informed park employees that “they should firmly cease such actions as soon as noticed and confirmed.”
“For many who come to the park to do this sort of factor, I’d a lot desire them to not come in any respect. After all we have to take harsher measures towards this sort of habits. That is principally destruction of property.”

You may suppose this response is a bit a lot, however Japanese employees and authorities don’t often fuck round on the subject of taking images in locations you’re not imagined to take images. I’ve had employees on the Tokyo Sport Present be stricter with digicam use than safety at well-known museums, and I felt just like the star of an Oceans film the day I managed to snap a pic of my son taking part in on the plush Catbus on the Ghibli Muesum in Tokyo. They’re usually tremendous strict, so Ōmura’s frustrations are maybe partly born from the truth that he expects safety to be tighter at these reveals than they’re.
Ghibli Park opened final yr after quite a few delays, however isn’t actually completed; whereas it’s promoting tickets, and there are three areas to discover (together with the home from Totoro), two different areas (together with a Mononoke-themed forest) are nonetheless below development, and aren’t as a result of be accomplished for an additional yr or two.
