Totoro, Kiki, Chihiro, the Catbus – these are names that speak to me the way that Snow White, Ariel and Nemo might to many an American Youth.  Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation institution; a corollary to Disney.

And if an American pilgrimage to Disney Land is necessary for some, then our trip to the Ghibli Museum was a destined moment in life.

The museum itself is designed as if you were in the movie.  Your transverse a series of watercolor sketches and story boards.  Spend time in both the animation studio and the worlds created there.  From the miniature to the larger then life, you are smiling the entire time.  From the basement dioramas up to the external  spiral staircase to the green roof where the iron Giant stands, across interior bridges, and balconies – Ghibli museum is a dream brought to life.

The Studio Ghibli Museum is located in Inokashira Park.  Please note there is a strict no-photo policy inside the museum.  It is  Very important to buy tickets ahead of time , a month if possible as the museum is not large.  You can buy tickets online prior to arrival in Japan.  Once in country, you can buy tickets at any of the Lawson’s convenience stores.  Also note you cannot buy tickets at the museum itself.

The name De Farine Et D’Eau Fraiche translates to ‘Flour and Fresh Water’ and is an apt name for a lovely café located in the gay village of Montreal.  The overall design is by studio Surface3 – including the branding, interior design,  and  custom furniture.  Surface3 has synthesized a modern yet cozy vibe, by combining organic elements: distressed wood tables, with the logo tattooed on it’s surfaces, and hanging white gloss lathed table leg light fixtures.  The use of  general frieze molding as wall coverings continues the classic materials used in new ways.

Pastry chef Marilu Gunji is a queen of the aesthetics. All the cookies, cakes, pastries and candies are visually seductive.  Everything is carefully displayed; the refrigerated cases with their vintage cake stands and on glass urns – with all the pretty pastries on coordinated doilies.  The kitchen is open and visible to customers and adds to the impeccable feel.

The De Farine Et D’Eau Fraiche also serves crispy salads, savory soups and sandwiches.  Most importantly, you can accompany your sweets with a good cup of coffee.  Chef Marilu Gunji also creates just the cutest mini wedding cakes!
