Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer
Caproni. Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins the aircraft division of
a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and he grows to become
one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers.
|The Wind Rises|
The Wind Rises chronicles much of his life, and depicts key historical events that affected deeply the
course of Jiro’s life, including The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, The Great Depression, the
tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. He meets and falls in love with Nahoko, grows and
cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo, and innovates tremendously, leading the aviation world
into the future.
Hayao Miyazaki brings together the engineer Jiro Horikoshi and the author Tatsuo Hori, who lived during
the time of the story of The Wind Rises, to create Jiro, a fictional character at the center of an epic tale of
love, perseverance, and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world.
