Notes: A feature-length film shot on video documenting a trip to North America by Hayao Miyazaki, Toshio Suzuki and a small entourage in September of 2002. As explained by Suzuki-san at the outset of the film, the footage was originally assembled and sent to John Lasseter as a thank you gift for his efforts on behalf of Spirited Away, as well as for acting as host for much of the trip. Mixed Japanese and English audio with English subtitles available.
