The Ghibli Park, a theme park that faithfully recreates the enchanting worlds of Studio Ghibli, is set to open a new area, “Witch’s Valley,” on March 16, 2024, with a focus on the tales of witches. Recently, the visual poster for this area was unveiled for the first time, accompanied by the latest information about “Witch’s Valley.”

“Witch’s Valley” features buildings inspired by the films, such as “Kiki’s Delivery Service” with the “Okino Residence” and the “Gu Choki Pan Bakery,” “Howl’s Moving Castle” with the iconic “Howl’s Castle” and the “Hatter’s Hat Shop,” and “Earwig and the Witch” with the “Witch’s House.” Additionally, there are delightful attractions like the “Merry-Go-Round” and the “Flying Machine.”
