Famed Studio Ghibli Has a Nausicaä Themed Beer

Recommended Videos

As if the amazing filmography of Studio Ghibli, partly founded by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki, wasn’t enough reason to visit the animation studio’s museum, here’s one more: They have their own beer. Named “Kaze no Tani,” the brew’s name references the film and manga series Nausicaä of The Valley of the Wind (Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä) produced by Miyazaki. And it looks delicious.

There’s scant information as to what kind of beer it is, but judging from the imagery on the label, I’m guessing it’s a wheat beer. And such a label! Drawn in the studio’s distinctive style, it features a harvest goddess (possibly Nausicaä herself?) huffing a great wind over Mt. Fuji. Each corner has a piece of heraldry, perhaps making references to early films like My Neighbor Totoro and Castle in the Sky. If you’re hanging around Western Tokyo, be sure to stop in for a brew. It’s always a bit forced to ask readers to leave comments, but if you’ve tried this beer, I want to know how it was.
