Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 19 Laputa

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. Then again, the first Totoro one was a one star but it still took many hours to put together so wasn’t expecting this to be any easier although it did look simpler.

There are quite a few other harder Laputa models such as the actual castle in the sky but it only looked good in the cover photo. The actual model wasn’t very good when I saw the models in Loft.

Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 11 Spirited Away

For our Ghibli Miniatuart papercraft this time we’ll be doing No. 11, a Spirited Away one which also happens to be a two star one again like the Kiki’s Delivery Service I put together the last time.

Spirited Away just happens to be one of my top Ghibili movies thanks to how exotic the art is and I’m sure most would agree it was quite moving how Chihiro persevered to save her own parents.

Trip to Japan Day 10 – Tokyo, Nakano Broadway, Mugiwara Store, Pokemon Centre, J-World

It was back to Tokyo today. Finally goodbye to those “sauna” hotel rooms in Nagoya! However, check-in time wasn’t until 3pm so we decided it would be best if we just left our luggage in lockers instead of travelling back and forth just to leave our luggage with the hotel.

There weren’t many days left before we return to the UK so my friend and I were pretty much split up doing our own things and shopping mostly.

I decided to go visit Nakano Broadway myself and yes, another rainy day.

Buildings looked quite run down at Nakano Station
