In this 2018 animated film from Studio Ghibli veteran Kitaro Kosaka, a young girl, Okko, becomes the new junior inn keeper at her grandmother’s countryside inn. While Okko faces challenges as she prepares to be the inn’s next caretaker, nothing comes close to the challenges she faces when she discovers the welcoming spirits to reside in the inn, and that the inn’s motto of “Welcome all, reject none.” is more than just a saying.
Okko must learn that dedicating herself to others is the key to taking care of herself, and being a gracious host means more than just good hospitality.
