As a seasonal collaboration with the exhibit, Tokyo City View's cafe and restaurant The Sun will be offering a menu inspired by the works of Studio Ghibli. This means that after taking in all the nostalgic and charming art of your favorite films from the legendary animation studio, you can sit down and enjoy food from the films as well as the closest thing to an official Studio Ghibli burger. Totoro is ready to serve you up a pitch black burger. Makkuro (Pitch Black) Burger At this point, it should come as no surprise that a seasonal burger in Japan features black buns. Unlike some in the past, however, this burger doesn't make use of squid ink and gets its dark color from bamboo charcoal. Besides, the black burger takes its inspiration from the Makkuro Kurosuke soot sprites which charmed everyone in My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away.

It comes with a side of meatball soup that no doubt makes for a great dipping combination.
