Opening day of the live-action movie "Kiki’s Delivery Service" is just around the corner. It will be released on March 1. Ahead of opening day, an event for the movie took place at Hanazono Shrine in Tokyo on Feb 20.
In the event, Fuka Koshiba, who was cast as Kiki, showed up from the sky over the shrine riding on the broomstick, dressed in full costume.
It made for great viewing and interesting news. She was being hauled 15 meters above the ground with a crane - and was reportedly insured for 100 million yen.
The movie was filmed on Shodo Island in Kagawa Prefecture. It is a famous island in the Inland Sea of Japan and the prefecture made a map of the various places where the movie was shot on the island. There is the famous bakery where Kiki works and the stunning natural landscape where Kiki is flying around in the movie. If you are interested, follow in her footsteps on Shodo Island.
