Happy birthday, Totoro!

Studio Ghibli, the Japanese animation studio founded by Hayao Miyazaki, is throwing a pop-up shop party in San Francisco to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film "My Neighbor Totoro." 

Join us we explore the swag on offer at the shop, all reflective of the unique world of Studio Ghibli.

This wall is the perfect place to take a souvenir photo. Recognize the characters on the wall? Tell me about it on Twitter @TaniaGlezAZ.

Books Kinokuniya is one of the hosts of the pop-up shop. Its display includes DVDs and books such as "My Neighbor Totoro," "The Art of Howl's Moving Castle," "Spirited Away," and even some editions in Japanese.

Most of the merchandise comes directly from Japan and will only be available at the pop-up shop.

Studio Ghibli-inspired creations from Her Universe are also available at the shop.

A lot of the small envelopes around the store contain surprises. You can see some of the available contents in these boxes, but you don't know which one you'll be getting.

I was a little skeptical of these towels at first. But open them and you can see the incredible artistry in each piece.

Note that the stand is made from recycled cardboard. A big part of the message of "Totoro" is reconnecting with nature and protecting the environment.

You'll find all kinds of plush toys.

The bathrooms are decorated with big Totoros or portraits with scenes from the movies.

I've never tried a smart toilet before so I had to explore it because, well, I work at CNET.

You can create your own sprite and put it on display.

I saw clever ones that others had made. I'm sure this wall will soon be completely covered with sprites.
