How To Purchase From The Official Studio Ghibli Store

The universe of Miyazaki is unique and fabulous. From My Neighbor Totoro to Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki is a genius. He can transform our world into a beautifully animated world with endearing characters and stories with underlining messages. In Japan, the official Studio Ghibli store is called "Donguri" meaning an acorn in English. If you have not had the chance to visit the official Studio Ghibli store in Japan, don't worry, you can get all the official products sent to your home no matter where you live in the world.
