My name is Aya and I moved to Korico (Visby) in 2009. I come from Tokyo and have watched all of the Studio Ghibli films with and without my children who are all grown up today. I love the Studio Ghibli films and “Kiki’s Delivery Service” is my favorite. I especially like the scene where she visits her friend in the forest and talks about what they do during a slump or a crisis in their profession. What Kiki experiences, happens to most of us in life. And that’s what makes us feel so close to her because we can relate to that feeling.
I enjoy watching movies in general and I especially like to look into the “Making of the movies” when I like a film. So I looked into all the places that inspired Hayao Miyazaki on this island.
When I like a film, I like to watch it many times so I really had fun finding out all the places that he used in this film. We will visit 18 places by foot that inspired Miyazaki in the making of Kiki’s Delivery Service. It is a walking tour but we will be climbing up stairs and a bit of the old walls in between. So wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
I highly recommend that you watch the film “Kiki’s Delivery Service” before you join this tour so that you can enjoy this tour to its fullest.
Looking forward to showing you around this magical city!
