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

I stumbled upon a link to a Minecraft map that mimics the worlds from various Studio Ghibli anime films, including but not limited to:

To install the map, just drop the extracted folder from the download to the inside of the “User → Application Support → Minecraft → Saves” folder on your Mac.

… When exploring, you can follow signed mine cart tracks between the worlds of the films, and then further into other destinations within those worlds themselves. Super cool.

… In this scene from Spirited Away (千と千尋の神隠し), you can follow the train tracks across the water to the house in the forest, even.

The house and ricefields from My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ), and in the background is the world from another film I've yet to explore!

Even if you haven't yet gotten into Minecraft, be sure to check this out if you're a fan of the films! — A tribute map like this is a fascinating addition to an already fascinating and unique gaming experience.
