Studio Ghibli Brings the 'Spirited Away' Hopping Lantern to Life

The merch line also includes four collaborative Seiko watches.

In celebration of Spirited Away‘s 20th anniversary, Studio Ghibli is set to release an IRL version of the film’s hopping lantern, along with other merch items at Japan’s Donguri Kyowakoku retail chain.

Officially dubbed the Michiannai no Kantera, which translates to “lantern guide” in English, the product arrives in the form of a lamp with a gloved hand-foot stand. In addition to the lantern, Studio Ghibli has teamed up with Seiko on four limited-edition watches featuring designs inspired by No-Face and Haku. Take a closer look at the different iterations below.

Priced at ¥8,800 JPY (approximately $80 USD), the Michiannai no Kantera will be available for pre-order on July 22 – the same day as the Spirited Away x Seiko watch collection launch.
