Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition Tokyo

Hayao Miyazaki is a highly regarded legendary filmmaker, helming Studio Ghibli and having numerous animated masterpieces under his belt. But this summer, the spotlight will shift to focus on his life-long colleague and fellow producer, Toshio Suzuki, at the Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition held in Tokyo.   

More than 8,800 books on display

First held in 2019, the Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition will be having a run at Warehouse TERRADA from 1st July to 7th September 2022. The exhibition has been refreshed with new additions, and fans can look forward to a huge bookshelf collection that’s lined with over 8,800 books and manga amassed from Suzuki’s childhood.

Get a glimpse of the influences in Suzuki’s life as you slowly browse through the curated materials on the huge bookshelf. Many of the books and manga have been crucial in shaping Suzuki’s creative process, ultimately leading to the conceptualisation of many of the Studio Ghibli titles we know and love today.

In addition to showcasing Suzuki’s private library, the exhibition will also see a huge space set aside for a mural of the bathhouse from Spirited Away. It features Ōtori-sama, the giant duck-like gods, soaking away in the bath tubs.
