Hayao Miyazaki’s Nature Park for Children

Miyazaki4Miyazaki5

Hayao Miyazaki’s latest project, “The Forest Where the Wind Returns,” isn’t a movie—it’s a nature park!

Keeping with the spirit of many of his films, Miyazaki is donating 300 million yen ($2.5 million USD) of his own money to create a place where children can commune with nature. Although the facility is set to include a 2-story library and sleeping quarters to house up to 30 children from the surrounding area, all the play equipment in the proposed park will incorporate the trees and boulders of the existing landscape (rather than relying on man-made structures).

“The Forest Where the Wind Returns” will open in the Zendo Forest Park on Kume Island in Okinawa. Click below for a sneak peek at the initial renderings from the design firm, Kume Creation! (It’ll be about a two year wait before you can see the real thing).
