Looking for a Home (やどさがし Yadosagashi?) is a short film shown only in the Saturn Theater at the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan. Debuting in January 2006, it is 12 minutes long.


Fuki sets out with a big rucksack in high spirits on a journey to look for a new house. Along her way, Fuki encounters and befriends numerous manifestations of the natural world, from fish to insects to a kami who resembled Totoro. All the sound effects in this film were done by human voice. As a nod to the non-Japanese speaking audience, this short film contains little to no spoken Japanese, and the story is conveyed almost entirely through art and sound effects. Sound is also depicted on screen as animated writing. The original story and screenplay were written by Hayao Miyazaki.
