The title was inspired by a 1937 book of the same name and written by Genzaburo Yoshino. Miyazaki claims the book will be held in great regard by the protagonist of his new film.

Yoshino’s book revolves around the characters Koperu and his uncle. It talks about Koperu’s spiritual growth and how to live as human beings.
