Studio Ghibli Theme Park is open in just over a year, and the construction of its highly-anticipated My Neighbor Totoro area is officially underway.

In the area, visitors can find Mei’s House from the film and a replica of Satsuki, but also encounter a giant Totoro tree and a life-sized cactus, the new visuals have revealed.

As for the park, it will feature a plethora of structures from Ghibli’s portfolio, including the airship from Castle in the Sky, a brick-laid restaurant on the shore and a replica of the witch’s home in Earwig and the Witch.
