This week, a special exhibit opened in Tokyo. If you like anime, namely Studio Ghibli, it is not to be missed. Neither is the one opening later this month.

The exhibit features the structures, the architecture, and the environments that appear in Studio Ghibli's films. This is a close-up look at the animated world the studio has created. On display, there are sketches and designs as well as background art and miniature dioramas.

I freaking love dioramas.

Below, you can see a photo of the exhibit. You can see many more through Japanese site Netlab.

The exhibit runs at the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum until December 14.

There is, however, another Studio Ghibli themed exhibit at the Edo-Tokyo Museum, which brings to life the house featured in upcoming anime When Marnie Was There. Below is a photo from Netlab.

This exhibit opens on July 27 and ends on September 15.

The When Marnie Was There recreation isn't the only real-world Studio Ghibli place you can visit. As previously introduced, Japan also has a full-scale replica of the My Neighbor Totoro house.

Brian, I hate you and I love you.

I hate you because, goddamnit man! I live in another country with no possible way to get to Tokyo neither this week or next month(or the forseeable future for that matter). So you can understand my consternation looking at this awesome, awesome exhibits (the Bath House in particular) and having no way or form of getting to look at them up close and in person as it should be. I feel this emptiness now, you bastard!

On the other hand, I love you because you made me remember Laputa, and the fact that I had not seen that movie in a few months, and since that is a terrible sin I must correct it right now. So I'm watching it now. The gift of watching a Studio Ghibli movie is a great one, and I thank you.

Well, at least there were no huggable Totoros on that exhibit...right?
