When two girls move to the country to be near their ailing mother, they have adventures with the wondrous forest spirits who live nearby.
The tiny soot creatures living in the house reappear in Spirited Away (2001).
Trees and people used to be good friends. I saw that tree and decided to buy the house. Hope Mom likes it too. Okay, let's pay our respects then get home for lunch.
When the father drives with his daughters on bike down a hill, on the road they drive are stones and parts of wood, but the bike doesn't shake.
Drawings in the closing credits show the mother returning home in a taxi and having a bath with Satsuki and Mei. There is also the appearance of a baby dressed in blue, perhaps a younger sibling (brother?) for the girls.
