Studio Ghibli Murals in Japan

In celebration of the opening of The Wind Rises in a couple of weeks, 26 theatres in Japan have unveiled murals all across the country depicting images and characters from all 21 feature length Studio Ghibli films.

Just in case you need help jogging your memory on which film is which, from left to right they are: Ocean Waves, Kiki's Delivery Service, Laputa Castle in the Sky, Tales from Earthsea, From Up On Poppy Hill, Porco Rosso, Grave of the Fireflies, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Princess Mononoke, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, Spirited Away, Whisper of the Heart, Pom Poko, The Wind Rises, The Cat Returns, Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, Only Yesterday, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, My Neighbors the Yamadas and The Borrower Arrietty.

Though there are still no release dates for the US or UK, and we only have a small teaser trailer to quench our ever thirsty animation mouths, we can look fondly at the artistry of this mural, and continue wishing we could live in Japan.
