Ghibli is an Italian word, coined during World War II, meaning “hot desert wind.” The term was also used for the name of Italy’s scouting planes in North Africa. Miyazaki, a vintage aircraft buff, decided to adopt the word for his new studio, hoping to be a “hot wind into the world of Japanese animation.”
In 1991, Studio Ghibli opened the Ghibli Museum, a commercial museum celebrating the works from Studio Ghibli. The museum is located in Inokashira Park in Mitaka, a western suburb of Tokyo (1-1-83 Simorenjaku, Mitaka-shi,
Tokyo 181-0013), Japan.
