Studio Ghibli may not be a household name like Disney, but the Japanese animation studio has amassed legions of dedicated fans the world over with its combination of moving stories, fantastical characters and visual whimsy. These aren't your parents' cartoons, though. Beloved films like My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away have an emotional and narrative maturity that has made them popular with children and adults alike. "Cute culture" shop JapanLA is hosting a monthlong Studio Ghibli Pop-up featuring a wide array of Ghibli merch, plus limited-edition enamel pins and jackets. There's also a Totoro photo booth, so you can pose with everyone's favorite oval-shaped cat-owl-raccoon creature. Organizers recommend arriving well before the 11 a.m. opening time, as they will be giving out tickets to only the first 800 people in line.
