Former Studio Ghibli president Toshio Suzuki was on hand to open an exhibit in his honor, featuring his calligraphy, sketches, writings, and other work related to the anime studio.
The exhibit is running in Suzuki's home town of Nagoya — and considering "Ghibli began in Nagoya" is a popular and largely accurate phrase, it's a doubly appropriate location. Suzuki was on hand to cut the ribbon at the Matsuzakaya Museum.
Suzuki admitted he was a little worried about how the exhibit would fare. "My name is on it, so it would be embarrassing if no one showed up." We're pretty sure that won't be the case, though.
The Toshio Suzuki Magic Words Exhibition runs until Monday, July 16.
