Mitaka, 三鷹

Walking through the streets of Mitaka, I couldn't help but be overcome by a feeling of familiarity. I paused for just the slightest moment to think, why? I was certain I had never been here before. Then it dawned on me, the streets of Mitaka is identical to the preconceptions I had of Japan. Now how did that happen?
That morning we were on our way to the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, 宮崎駿美術館, as a kid I watched many anime drawn by Ghibli. Walking through these streets took me back to these animes and I could see this magical place where Ghibli got his ideas for his stories.
