If you haven’t heard already, Studio Ghibli is currently holding a very special exhibition at Roppongi Hills, showcasing beautiful and often nostalgic Ghibli artwork of the past 30 years. But no special event in Japan is complete without a series of delicious themed foods, and thanks to cafe and restaurant The Sun, the Ghibli Exhibition has got this part of the event covered.

The Sun has been offering collaborative Ghibli-themed foods on their menu since July, but will be serving a second, completely new round of dishes inspired by the movies starting August 10th. The new menu will include Herring and Pumpkin Pot Pie from Kiki’s Delivery Service, Shaved Ice in the Sky inspired by Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and Drop Soda, a colorful drink reminiscent of Grave of the Fireflies.

Herring and Pumpkin Pot Pie

This beautiful pie from Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of the most iconic foods from the Ghibli films. It is limited to only 50 servings per day, so head over early if you want it. The pie is filled with herring, pumpkin, broccoli, bacon, cheese, and Béchamel sauce. True to the movie, it comes with the shape of a fish on top!

Shaved Ice in the Sky

The double-layered shaved ice of lemon and melon syrup is perfect for a summer visit. It’s topped with pop rock candy and Blue Hawaii-flavored jelly.

Drop Soda

Pretty in pink, this drink tastes of a mix of candy drops, mint, and tonic soda. It’s even filled with colorful gummies that look like candy.

This second round of Ghibli-themed food will be served at The Sun until September 11th, until the end of the exhibition itself. If you can’t make it to the event, you can always try making some Ghibli recipes yourself, but a day spent at the Studio Ghibli Exhibition is guaranteed to make your summer a memorable one.
