Hayao Miyazaki Paints New Logo For Kumejima Town Buses 

The new logo which will appear on the Okinawa island town’s busses features a Sea Turtle with the Earth on its back. 

Last year we learned that Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki had donated 300 million yen (around US$2.4 million) to the town of Kumejima, Okinawa for the construction of an “Interaction Center for Children” in the town’s Zenda Forest Park. 

The facility is intended for families and children, who were displaced from Fukushima, to be outdoors; due to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station leak after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, there are areas in Fukushima that are no longer safe for children to play.
