Loved it. No Japanese needed...... although you do have to be in Ghibli Museum
7 June 2009 | by theirishgrover-1See all my reviews

I loved this little film, shown only in the Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. A great little film about a girl going on a camping trip away from the big, busy city and meeting all kinds of nature spirits: River spirit, Forest spirit, Wind spirit etc (including a Totoro-like spirit that caused the younger kids to laugh and whisper his name). There is no dialogue from the girl but the spirits make various sounds relevant to their own nature (No pun intended). All the sounds are made by mouth. Wonderfully animated and, since there is no dialogue, easy to follow. It is similar to My Neighbours The Yamadas in tone and the animation style is not typical to Ghibli's feature Film. It's a pity, but understandable, that these films are not available outside the studio.
