Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I’ll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker.

It’s been a while since Makoto Shinkai released his first art book, “A Sky Longing for Memories” (which you can get an English copy of by Vertical Comics).

It was our last day in Japan before we fly back to Scotland tomorrow. So, being a big fan of Makoto Shinkai’s 5 Centimetres per Second (5cm) fan I just had to visit some of the locations that were located around Tokyo.
Note: The location hunting wasn’t done in order and this wasn’t a full day dedicated to 5cm location hunting. You will see the local areas too. Photos are also cropped to match the way they’re depicted in the Anime but if you click on them, you can see the uncropped photos.
