posted on by Bamboo Dong
Fans of Mamoru Hosoda's (Summer Wars, Girl Who Leapt Through Time) Wolf Children looking to plan a trip to Japan may be interested in travel agency JTB Corp's latest offering. With help from the local governments in Toyama Prefecture, the company has designed a tour that features locations seen in the film.
Included in the itinerary is an old house in Kamiichi, which was used as the reference model for the house that main character Hana moves into with her children. While there, tour participants can try their hands at farming and talk to locals about the preservation of the home.
At night, tour participants will stay at Oiwakan, a three-story wooden inn located nearby.
For those eager to also check out some of the landscapes used in the film, the tour will also take participants to places where they can view the Tateyama mountain range, Toyama Bay, and other natural features.
The tour is being arranged by JTB, the Toyama prefectural government, and the town offices of Kamiichi and Tateyama. More information can be found here (Japanese).
