Amuse Me Adventure #2: Hayao Miyazaki

Spirited Away, Totoro, and SO MUCH HAYAO MIYAZAKI LOVE~

On a quest to see anything related to Hayao Miyazaki’s famous animated works, I joined Sarah Yang along with roomie Minyoung right after getting my alien registration card on Friday, September 19th. Exiting Yongsan from the subway, we found ourselves in a large shopping mall of some sort and headed up a series of escalators to the 6th floor. And there it was, stealthily hidden past the furniture section of the mall was the green wall of Hayao Miyazaki films that led us to the ticket window.

If anyone is still interested in going, this exhibit is still open until March at the cost of 15,000 W.
Because Minyoung bought her ticket first and left Sarah and me behind, we ended up having extremely bad photos by the end of the exhibit. Let’s just say I didn’t inherit Papa Bui’s professional photography skills. That and the fact that they didn’t allow flash photography, even though the exhibit had almost as bad of a lighting as a haunted mansion. Other than that it was super fun going through the mini-museum taking pictures of Miyazaki’s popular films, and the popular scenes. Not going to lie, but I still have the biggest obsession with Spirited Away, which may be the reason why I might have died inside when I couldn’t find a Spirited Away themed puzzle at the gift shop. But it’s okay since I still have fond childhood memories of watching and re-watching Kiki’s Delivery Service, so I did splurge a little and bought a 14,000 W puzzle of Kiki flying over the city on her broom.

UPDATE: I’ve finished the 108 piece puzzle but now require a frame to hang it up with.
