For anime fans old and new we have this touching feature debut from long time Studio Ghibli animator Kitarô Kôsaka. After an accident, Okko goes to live at her grandmother’s country inn, where she learns that she will eventually run the business. Struggling with the traditions and rural way of life, Okko finds that there are friendly ghosts present that only she can see. These spirits help her to find her way, conquer her fears and deal with rivals, especially classmate Frilly Pink.
Get to know the costumes, sounds and culture of Japan in our foyer display, in association with the Embassy of Japan in Ireland and Experience Japan. We also welcome JCON cosplayers, an origami workshop and Manga artist Kumiko Matsumoto.
