Studio Ghibli Fans Flock To Small Tasmanian Bakery

Fans of Studio Ghibli’s classic film ‘Kiki’s Delivery Service’ flock to a humble Australian bakery. It’s a coincidental likeness the small bakery has enthusiastically embraced.

The owner of the bakery, Carl Crosby, says that he usually receives at least 50 Japanese tourists per day, all having made a pilgrimage just to visit this location. It’s been happening for about 15 years, and numbers are increasing annually as the story gains more awareness in Japan among Miyazaki fans. A floor above the bakery has even been converted into a replica of Kiki’s room from the film, done at the request of tourists. More info about the bakery, including photos and videos, can be found by clicking here.
