Ghibli Museum in Mitaka closes temporarily for renovations, but don’t despair because it will re-open in mid-July. And it will re-open in a very big way, with a new exhibition called “Nekobus ni notte, Ghibli no Mori he.” In other words, Ride the Cat-Bus to Ghibli Forest. This re-opening exhibition will run from July 16 to May 2017. The museum has hold amazing exhibitions over the years, like the “Spirited Away Exhibition” back in 2001, “Heidi, Girl of the Alps Exhibition” back in 2005 or “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea Exhibition”back in 2009.
“Riding the Bus-Cat to Ghibli Forest” wants to become a blast by using collage-style art. Also, the Cat-Bus is beloved by many fans, and so, many had asked if the Cat-Bus could be called into action.
The Museum, which is under deep renovations through May 9 to July 15, will update its website with more information about the facilities, re-paintings, etc. It’s just a great idea to start the fun again with the Cat-Bus exhibition!
