Hayao Miyazaki’s Nature Park for Children


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).

Gold Teeth / Slow

Gold Teeth perform Slow, in a park. The vibe of the song reminds me of Seu Jorge playing the Bowie songs in The Life Aquatic.

Night Vision

Night Vision went down Friday night at Strathcona Park and several hundred people showed up to listen to music, chill out, and enjoy some photography. There was a little incident with the sprinklers but there’s nothing like a group shower to spice up a party! Huge props to Natasha Lands and Jennilee Marigomen for making it all happen!
