Be transported into the world of My Neighbor Totoro at "Satsuki and Mei's House". At the top of the hill behind their house, sits "Dondoko-do". Only kids are allowed inside Dondoko-do!

Satsuki and Mei's House

This is the Japanese-Western style house Satsuki and Mei moved to in My Neighbor Totoro. There is a kitchen, bathroom, sitting room, bedroom, study and more. Inside their house you can almost hear Satsuki and Mei's laughter and the echoes of the dust bunnies.


After following the acorns along the hill trail, Dondoko-do awaits. Dondoko-do is a 5-meter-tall wooden structure where children under twelve can play inside.

Dondoko-do is located at the top of a hill within the Dondoko Forest which is a ticketed area.
It is not visible from outside the area.
