I have a large stack of DVDs on loan to me for the next while, and last night I vegged out to watch Hiyao Miyazaki’s “My Neighbour Totoro”. I’ve been wanting to see this film for awhile because a friend of mine is such a fan. It’s a very sweet movie, filled with the unusual magical creatures, clever little girls, and beautiful scenery that is typical of Miyazaki’s films. If it could ever be possible, I would like to ride around the Japanese countryside in the cat bus just to sit in one of its warm and furry interior seats. I’d also love to live in an old wooden house just like the one featured in the film, with sliding doors, wooden bath tubs, and tatami mats on the floor.
(I hear Japan calling…)
