I'd like to go somewhere that resembles a Miyazaki movie, with landscapes like pic related.

I'd like to go somewhere that resembles a Miyazaki movie, with landscapes like pic related. Where can I most easily find this aesthetic?

Japan is the obvious answer for weeb shit but I feel like his movies have more of an early 19th century Europe feel.

    I don’t know about that mecha thing but you can get the crags-and-farms aesthetic in a few places. Dolomites in Italy, pretty much anywhere in Norway, Scottish highlands.

      Thanks but no thanks, anon. Without the mecha, it's not worth it.

      I've been to Austria, it definitely had that vibe but I am seeking somewhere new.

    seems like any landscape that can sustain farmland in the mountains - bonus if near water

      I’ve actually been there. Faroes is great for that kind of thing but it is very remote

      Yep, specifically the former mining towns

      How? Laputa is the most beautiful movie he made and Wales is probably the least aesthetically pleasing place on planet Earth. I'd sooner go to New Jersey.

        Northern Wales is lovely. Southern is shite.

    I believe that the town in the start of Howl's might be partly based on Heidelberg. You walk up to the castle and look down at the town and it looks quite similar.

    The Alps are the inspiration for the landscape, though. Austrian or West Swiss.

    Miyazaki movies are usually based on the aesthetics of Belle Epoque Europe. The Alps, in the case of your image.

    This was based on Akiyoshidai I thought. Southest Japan is usually missed.
