The Donguri Kyowakoku stores across Japan, which are specialized in items inspired by the Studio Ghibli films, will start offering a “Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi: Kaonashi Mushamusha Chokinbako (Spirited Away: No-Face Munching Saving Bank) from May 21. The lonely spirit character Kaonashi/No-Face appeared in Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award-winning film in 2001.
The Kaonashi saving box inspired by the character eats coins placed on the dish when its weight exceeds about 30 grams, then makes a sound of burp. The price is 4,800 yen (about 44 US dollars) and the size is W80×H210×D160mm. The official YouTube of Donguri Kyowakoku’s Soranoue store has posted a 80-second demonstration video for it.
