Studio Ghibli has created the anime fan’s ideal summer travel accessory in the form of these handkerchief / snack sets based on characters from the classic Hayao Miyazaki film My Neighbor Totoro.
Known as “tenugui”, the 100% cotton handkerchiefs measure 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) in length and feature Totoro, Catbus and Mei, each of which are designed to deliver a 3D effect when used as a wrapping cloth. An additional “souvenir” version is also available which draws inspiration from the bundle of seeds Totoro gives to Mei and her sister Satsuki.
When opened, you’ll find snacks in the form of vegetable chips in the Totoro and the Catbus sets while the remaining three boast a pack of mixed nuts.
The Totoro handkerchief/snack sets are slated for release next month from Ghibli specialty retailer Donguri Kyowakoku, and will retail for 1,600 yen (US$14).
