Trivia Mamoru Hosoda completed all 500 pages of storyboards for the film at Denny's, working in hugely long 12 and 16-hour shifts. See more »
Goofs The coordinates shown on screen by the satellite probe would put the castle more than 53 kilometers away from the center of Ueda-city and wouldn't even be in the Nagano-prefecture. It would then be the closest to the Agatsuma district in the Gunma prefecture. See more »

Quotes Sakae Jinnouchi: Never turn your back on family, even when they hurt you. Never let life get the better of you. And if you remember nothing else, remember to find time to eat together as a family. Even when times are rough; especially when times are rough. There's no lack of painful things in this world, but hunger and loneliness must surely be two of the worst.Thanks to you, my precious family, I didn't know a moment of either of those the last ninety years.
