Exploring World Showcase at Epcot: Part 5 Japan (Part 2 of 3) Spirited Beasts: Anime Exhibit

Here is part 2 of our journey into the Japan Pavilion and the current exhibit that is there.  The exhibit is called  "Spirited Beasts From Ancient Stories to Anime Stars".    I'm not a big Anime fan -but still found this exhibit to be really interesting.

The exhibit is located under the gates of the Imperial palace.

Here is a little photo journey through the exhibit.

The exhibit features creatures from Japanese Mythology and artwork and how it has inspired some of today's modern day comics and anime.  It is always interesting to see the influences in modern works and what inspired them.   One of the things that made Star Wars and its universe some deep and rich in its world building is the fact that its stories and themes were influenced by mythology and strong mythic themes.    So if you are an Anime fan this exhibit will be right up your alley.

Up next will be explore the shopping in Japan and I'll post my out of the box idea for Ultimate Epcot and what could be added to Epcot if money was no object.
