Okko’s Inn

All are welcome here...

Premieres the week of August 30th – for Labour Day weekend family matinees!

After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional Japanese inn built on top of an ancient spring said to have healing waters. While she goes about her chores and prepares to become the inn’s next caretaker, Okko discovers that there are spirits who live there that only she can see – not scary ones, but welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. Japanese with English subtitles.

Awards of the Japanese Academy: Best Animation Film nominee!

“The touching animated feature “Okko’s Inn” offers an unusual ghost story…carries a welcome message of acceptance and inclusion.” (LA Times)

12-year-old Oriko Seki, who lost her parents in a car accident, ended up living in her grandmother's Onsen Ryokan "Haru no Ya." With the ghost "Uribou" cohabitating with her and all the other odds, she ended up training to be a young female innkeeper. At first, she didn't like the training, but gradually felt her admiration for her title and began to train seriously. Thus, the growth of the young warrior Oriko begins.
