Studio Ghibli ha salso already displayed an anti-nuclear power banner at its Tokyo head office, from an iniziative by Miyazaki himself.
The banner, placed on the roof of the building in Koganei, western Tokyo, since Thursday, reads, “Studio Ghibli wants to create movies using electricity without nuclear power plants.”
