The Japanese summer towel pillowcases are even better with the addition of Ghibli stars

Almost every day in the summer, you can expect the weather in Japan to fall into one of three categories: hot, humid, or hot and humid. To deal with this, many people in Japan switch to using a towel once the temperature and humidity start to rise. A combination of the words ‘towel’ and ‘blanket’. A towel is essentially a terry cloth blanket, something that will keep you cozy while you sleep, but made of breathable, stretchy material that will maintain your comfort level as your body temperature rises as morning approaches.

And now there’s another reason to switch to towel cloth material for summer, with a new line of charmingly adorable towel pillow covers featuring the anime stars of Studio Ghibli.

The covers are offered through Ghibli specialty store Donguri Kyowakoku and come in four designs, representing four of the studio’s films. It’s not a proper Ghibli meeting until Totoro shows up, so of course the cuddly forest spirit is here, in both large and small Totoro versions on either side of the pillowcase, with a few Soot Sprites (aka Makkurokurosuke [aka Susuwatari]) along for the ride.

▼ Normally, soot on your pillowcase would be a bad thing, but this is a happy exception.


▼ The drizzly day motif is perfect for Japan’s June rainy season, when many people switch to towel bedding.


“Spirited Away” fans can opt for a cover featuring No Face, more Soot Sprites, and the Aburaya bathhouse emblem on the front…


…and Boh in mouse form with Haedori on top of him on the back.


Hailing from “Kiki’s Delivery Service” is Jiji, the optimistic feline partner of the industrious titular witch…


…that’s cute enough for both sides.

▼ With the paw prints you could say that this cover is also signed.


Finally, if you want even more of Ghibli’s cats, the final design bears the likeness of Whisper of the Heart’s Baron.


The covers are suitable for pillows measuring up to 43 by 63 centimeters.

All designs cost 2,200 yen and are available through the online store Donguri Kyowakoku (Totoro hereGhostly away hereJiji hereand Baron here). And if you also need summer-oriented sheets, they’ve got you covered on that front too.
