The Toshio Suzuki and Studio Ghibli Exhibition shows us how Toshio Suzuki was inspired and influenced by other novelists and films and how he connected them to his way of thinking. It will also show us how Suzuki has helped to shape the careers of many of Studio Ghibli's most talented animators and what he learned from them as an editor and producer. This Ghibli exhibition will explore the answers to these questions through Suzuki's 8,800 books as well as over 10,000 film works that have inspired and shaped his life's work at Studio Ghibli. Some of the books will be available for visitors to hold in their hands and browse in a room, inspired by Producer Suzuki's hideout, "Renga-ya".
