The same month when storyboards came about [for the movie], Miyazaki set off to the ancient forests of Yakushima, in Kyushu and the mountains of Shirakami-Sanchi in northern Honshu [of Japan].
“It was just right, the ruins of this ancient forest reflects on us as humans. We need to learn to appreciate what we have left of the environment, and I wanted this as a theme for the animation.” - Miyazaki on his inspiration for Princess Mononoke.
December 2003 this image was caught by the security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London.
They kept finding the fire door open even when no one was there. Upon viewing the footage they found this ghostly figure who they said resembled King Henry VIII.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” Faukes said. -BBC
