Everyone’s favourite ghibli director, Hayao Miyazaki, is yet again planning something awesome and sweet but this time around in the real world! His stance on nature, the environment and the connection we should have with both is well known throughout his work and now he wants to materialize that in the form of a nature sanctuary in Kumejima, Okinawa.
The plan is to fund and convert an unused playground into a harmonious nature retreat, that includes a 30 people capacity dormitory, where children can temporarily forget the digital world and discover and appreciate a deeper connection with nature. If it has Miyazaki’s hand in it we can be sure that this project (that should be complete by 2018) will turn out into something beautiful and unique! We can’t wait to see!
