Miyazaki-sensei Designs Park!

Just like making a concept art for an upcoming movie, Hayao Miyazaki-sensei *bows* revamps a burnt-down park.

Miyazaki Designs Park at Burnt-Down ‘Totoro’s Home’

2009-09-15 21:03


Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki has designed a park on the site of the Tokyo house that was nicknamed “Totoro’s Home” — before it was burnt down in a suspected arson case on February 14. The design of the park incorporates the remnants of the house’s red roof. Kondō, the 85-year-old woman who had lived at the house for 35 years, said, “It’s like a miracle. I want this to become a garden that many will treasure.”…

At the time of the fire [last February], Kondō was in a hospital for heart surgery. Kondō was reportedly devastated after she left the hospital and stood before the remnants of the house. However, with Miyazaki’s help on the revamped design, the local government decided to continue its plans to create a park. The government will detail its plans in a Friday meeting with the local urban environmental committee and residents. If all goes according to schedule, the city will complete the park in the middle of next year.

Since Myazaki-sensei is redesigning it then maybe we, my Totoro Jae  (because My Neighbor Totoro is his favorite anime) and I, may somehow find that a perfect place for our honeymoon. Then maybe we can have our lttile Totoros there too. LOL
