A few months ago, the ghibli park in Japan and they are adding more and more things, like new areas inspired by their movies and even a Catbus that you can ride on to tour the park.
Studio Ghibli theme park It’s a dream come true, but since you can see we can’t have nice things, a few have already had to come to spoil the fun in the most disgusting way possible.
For that, stay home
These days it has been quite busy in Japan (and on the internet), when some visitors to Ghibli Park have started sharing their photos of the park… And the controversy arose because in the photos several “fans” could be seen touching the breasts of the statues of female characters, taking photos of them under their skirts, and groping them in general.
Specifically, the most “popular” have been Marnie from ‘The memory of Marnie’ and Teru from ‘Tales of Earthsea’, which have life-size replicas.
Visitors to #GhibliPark fondled female characters’ breasts & took photos under their skirt. What does the management have to say to this “indecent photos”? Nothing.https://t.co/IB5aL8y7sN
“We have NO COMMENT on this matter.”

On the one hand, the first criticisms have come because these characters are supposed to be underage girls and we are already with the Otaku Culture sexualizing young girls (albeit as a joke). But it is not only that we get into the most disgusting subtexts of the photos, it is that the ball has been getting so fat that in the end even the government of the Aichi Prefecture hHe ended up coming out to criticize the situation.
Ghibli Park has been built in a park in this prefecture with the idea of entertainment for the whole family, and this type of photo has greatly damaged its image. So Hideaki Omurathe governor of the prefecture, confirmed in a press conference last week that they were going to investigate the case and take action against these visitors.
“Honestly speaking, sharing photos like these on social media is highly inappropriate. From adults to children, people go to Ghibli Park to enter the world of Ghibli and have a good time. And these kinds of actions have disturbed a lot of people,” he said. Ōmura. “For those who come to the park to do this kind of thing, I’d rather they don’t come. Of course we need to crack down on these behaviors, it’s basically destruction of property.”
The other great controversy has also come from the fact that in the face of such a forceful response from the prefectural government, Studio Ghibli has refused to discuss the matter. He has not criticized the visitors or promised any kind of measure and has only left us a “no comment” on networks… So at this point it seems that it depends on the workers hunting down the inappropriate photos in time and the perverts leave the cameras at home.
