Studio Ghibli, Inc. (株式会社スタジオジブリ) productions recreated in Minecraft.

I stumbled upon this link to a Minecraft map that mimics the worlds from various Ghibli anime films, including My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ), Howl’s Moving Castle (ハウルの動く城), Spirited Away (千と千尋の神隠し), and several more. Having watched many to study Japanese (日本語), I found this to be a great introduction of exploring user “seeds” in this sandbox building game.

Download the Map — [http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/-minecraft-ghibli-world-/] … To install, drop the extracted folder inside of User → Application Support → Minecraft → Saves

After installing the Map, you can follow signed train tracks to the worlds of the films, and then further into other destinations within those worlds.

The Bathhouse (おんせん)in Spirited Away. (sorry for the rain and darkness, the game controls the weather and daylight)  — You can follow the train tracks across the water to the house in the forest, even.

The house and ricefields in My Neighbor Totoro. In the background is the world from another film I’ve yet to explore.

If you’ve heard of Minecraft, be sure to check this out. A tribute map like this is a fascinating addition to an already fascinating project.
