Anime Tourism 88 is a website for anime fans around the world that works with the anime industry and officials around the country. The site has just added the Yamamoto Nizo Museum in Goto, Nagasaki to the 2019 edition of its must-visit locations associated with anime.

 

The museum is a celebration of Japanese art director Nizo Yamamoto who is best known for his work with Studio Ghibli. The films he has worked on include Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986), Grave of the Fireflies (1988), Princess Mononoke (1997) and even Madhouse’s The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006). Visitors at the museum can expect to see background illustrations from his works, original pieces drawn from the establishment and more. The building itself is a renovated samurai house that was built during the Edo period in 1863.

 

Yamamoto himself grew up surrounded by the immense natural environment of Goto. If you visit Nagasaki, be sure to visit the museum dedicated to him.
