Kimi no na wa was without a doubt the best film/animation released in Japan in the year 2016. This animation earned more than 18 billion yen at the box office, ranked first on Myanimelist and could be nominated for an Oscar. There's no way to watch this movie without getting emotional, and you probably agree or are very excited to watch it.

In this article we separate some photos of locations that were used in the film, for you to compare with the real locations. If you still don't know the synopsis of this work written by Makoto Shinkai, let's leave it below:

Synopsis: The story takes place a month after a comet crashes for the first time in a thousand years in Japan. Mitsuba, a high school girl who lives in the countryside, wants to live in the city because she is tired of life in the country. Then there's Taki, he's a high school student who lives in Tokyo with his friends while working as a part-timer at an Italian restaurant. He also has a strong interest in fine arts involving architecture. One day, Mitsuba dreamed of herself as a young man. On the other hand, Taki also has a dream in which he is a high school student in the countryside.

Video of Kimi no na wa scenarios

Recently the Japanese Online Program team had the opportunity to visit Tokyo and recorded a comparative video of the real scenarios of Kimi no na Wa. I have good memories, because on the previous trip with the course class, I had seen the film in Poster. Years later the team had the opportunity to visit the sights, it's a pity I couldn't go with them.

Unfortunately, there is no real city called Itomori in Japan. But the images in the film pretty much represented the true location of the sights we are going to see now in Gifu and Nagano Prefecture.


In the image above you will find one of the most important points of the animation, the lake that is a great tourist spot in the city of Itomori, in real life this lake is called Suwa and is located in the city of Suwa in Nagano Prefecture.

In the images below we will see some highlights of Gifu Prefecture. First the Hida Furukawa station and then the Hida Sannogu shrine which served as a model for the Miyamizu shrine that appears in the film.


The next image shows one of the main points of the movie, in real life it is an island called Aogashima. To get to this island in real life it is necessary to take a helicopter from the city of Hachijojima.


In addition to the prefectures of Gifu and Nagano, the film takes place in Tokyo and has several highlights. In the first image below, the NTT DOCOMO building in the Yoyogi neighborhood of Tokyo was used. The second image is located at Shinanomachi Station in Shinjuku – Tokyo.
