April 4, 1998FI visited "Totoro" mountain village from the suspension bridge in Ume town, driving through the winding trail. by Mie

This is Totoro spot in Minami Tabaru village. The spot has long been to be Totoro far before a TV animation program Totoro became so famous. I asked a traffic controller all the way to keep cars away from the bus stop named Totoro to take pictures. There was a long line of inching cars.
The Totoro tree. So many Totoros neatly arranged are the highlight of the spot.
Famous Cat Bus was at the corner of a parking space. People patiently wait for picture opportunity through the wind.
