If you’ve dreamt of riding the Catbus ever since you first saw My Neighbor Totoro, start saving your money for a trip to Japan.
The Studio Ghibli museum in Mitaka, Japan, has long had a Catbus on display. Sadly, only children under the age of 12 were allowed to board it, as it’s fairly small. But that’s about to change. The museum will be closed from May 9 to July 15 for renovations of older exhibits and to prepare for the newest exhibit, “Ride the Catbus to the Ghibli Woods,” featuring a bigger, better Catbus suitable for adults.
If you have a hunger for all things Catbus, the Studio Ghibli museum isn’t your only option. The Izu Teddy Bear museum in Japan’s Shizuoka Prefecture also has a huge Catbus—which is most certainly not a teddy bear, but whatever—and it’s open to both adults and children. As you can see, it has plenty of room for both.
If you plan to visit the Ghibli Museum for the new exhibit, you’ll need to buy tickets in advance. May the Catbus take you to new and wonderful places—like a world where Miyazaki comes out of retirement and makes more magnificent films.
