Day 10 (02/04): Suzumiya Haruhi locations

  05:19:09 am, Categories: Suzumiya Haruhi, Japan 2008, Real-life locations

Today I went to check out some anime locations again, this time from Suzumiya Haruhi. It is highly based on a wonderful guide made by some japanese guys (the guide is in japanese, but it has maps and lots of pictures on it). I may want to make my own guide (in english) later on in the same style with some reference pics.

Went to Umeda Station (right next to Osaka station) and took the Hanshin Main line to Koroen station. Not far from here I found the library where Nagato goes with Kyon. Then I went back from where I came from and went further north and passed by the other train station (Shukugawa from JR). From there one, beside the tracks is a long stretch of park with a small river going through it. Because there were many sakura trees in this park and it is now hanami season it was swarming with people who also wanted to take pictures, so I didn't stand out taking many pictures myself. Sakura blossoms can be very beautiful. This is the park where Kyon and Mikuru walk through looking for "weird" things but end up doing a kind of date and this is also where Mikuru tells about her true nature.

At the end of the park, I follow the railroad further up north. Here we come by the railroad crossing where Haruhi talks to Kyon about her past. I follow the railroad further up north until I reached the terminal station. Here are also a few locations to be found which you will see in the pictures. Here at the end station we can make a choice, go right, to go to the pond scene location, or go left to the road to the school. I wanted to do both so I went to the pond first. It's quite a long way to go and I actually end up way too far. I actually ended up at 2 other locations that I didn't plan on doing because they were so far away ;p The baseball playground and a Volks restaurant where SOS dan meets up. Going back I find the pond where some of the movie scenes were shot. Like the attack of the zombies where Mikuru falls into the water. Now all the way back to the station (getting almost lost), I went to the road to the school. This has quite a few stops with elements that appear in the anime like the stairs, the bench on the stairs, an arc bridge, a gas station and finally the school. In the anime, Kyon complains about the road to the school being so steep, and I must concur, it is very steep and exhausting. Whoever had the idea to build a school there, must have thought of the saying by the greek: a healthy mind in a healthy body. It certainly gets you into shape if you do this every day. After I got to the school, went back down the other way, but by doing that, I got quite lost (again) and asked some police man for directions to the station. I didn't end up at the station I started but at the one before that. So I walked quite a way. I'm going to find out just how much I walked later one ;p

So I took the train to Shukugawa station and from there the train to Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi station. Here are also some locations of the SOS dan meeting in front of the station and where they meet for drinks. After this, I went back to Osaka to eat some ramen and then back to the hotel. I was quite exhausted...
