Studio Ghibli Celebrates MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO Anniversary with a Pop-Up Shop

Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro was released 30 years ago in Japan, and to celebrate the anniversary of their beloved film, Studio Ghibli has joined forces with Her Universe and Kinokuniya USA to create a limited, themed pop-up shop in San Francisco. The shop located at TOTO Concept 190 opened its doors Saturday, and it looks like a slice of Ghibli heaven. The friendly Totoro-inspired decor is the setting for exclusive merch from both Her Universe and Kinokuniya and items like Totoro plush.

Tl;dr: I want to hug pretty much everything in the store.

Studio Ghibli Chairman and CEO Koji Hoshino, above with Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein, attended the opening of the pop-up shop and said: “I am so excited to have this pop up shop in San Francisco. This is one of a kind. It is so fantastic! Please come and join this Ghibli presentation.”

The shop has a focus on Totoro, it’s his special celebration after all, but the offerings encompass multiple Ghibli films. You can see items from Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and more. The more I look at each picture from the pop-up, the longer my shopping list grows. Plus, you can participate in fun activities while you’re there, like making your own Soot Sprite.

Going to the pop-up in San Francisco is free, but you do need to book tickets for your time slot before you go. They don’t have tickets available at the door, so no walk-ins. You can schedule your visit before the pop-up ends on March 18 on Eventbrite. You can get a taste of what the pop-up is like and see exclusive offerings from Her Universe in the gallery below.

Will you be stopping by the pop-up? What do you hope to buy? Let us know in the comments!
