In Jiufen, You Can Eat Your Way Through a Miyazaki Film If you’ve ever wanted to live inside Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki’s imagination, the first thing you should consider is booking a plane ticket to Taiwan. Southeast of China and southwest of Japan, and covered in endless stretches of lush tropical forests and densely packed yet alarmingly clean modern cities, Taiwan served as the inspiration for Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved 2001 film Spirited Away. And if you want to relive it, all you have to do is retrace Chihiro’s steps. Hop on a bus (or taxi) just outside of Taipei’s city limits.
