Until this point, the only things tempting me to Oregon were seeing a Timbers game live, baking something British with Kirk Hamilton, and the fact it’s the name of one of the best Clutch songs.

That was before I knew the state was actually a Miyazaki fever dream.

There’s a whole website of this stuff. I love it so much. Let’s all go to Oregon.


  • Cool! I’m going to Japan in a few months, might check out Oregon while we’re there.

    But seriously, as amazing as that was, it doesn’t really instil a lot of confidence when the tourism ad can’t or won’t show you the actual place they’re promoting 😛

    • It’s in the US dogg. The “only slightly exaggerated” part at the end is pretty accurate though.

      • Yes, I am aware it’s in the US. But the ad is in the style of Japanese animation so I… Bah, never mind.
