Have you watched that famous Japanese anime film ”Your Name” produced by director Makoto Shinkai. The movie has been so hot and gotten rave reviews since it was released on 26th August this year. It even exceeds the movie ”Spirited Away” to be the first popular movie in Japan and become the top-grossing movie of Japan this year. Everyone who watched the movie said it was so impressed and wonderful and they liked it very much. Even someone said that it will be a big loss of your life if you do not go to see the movie.
Why are the movies of Makoto Shinkai always so popular with every people, not only the movie Your Name this time, but also the wonderful movies he directed before like ”Byousoku 5 Centimeter” and ”The Garden Of Words”. What makes his movie so special and different？Besides the touching story, the exquisite expression technique, the proper processing of the details, another important thing is that the frame of the movie is too romantic and beautiful.
Japanese anime movies like to use the location of the real world into the movie as the background. The fantastic thing is that they can make the scene exactly the same as the real place. I think it drives from Japanese people’s untiring pursuit of details and beauty.
In the same way, there are many Japanese locations in real world appeared in the movie “Your Name” too. Because of this movie, these locations become more and more famous and lots of fans of this movie go to these places to take photos.
Today I will recommend you three hot places in Tokyo that showed in the movie so that if you like the movie very much and happen to have a chance to travel Japan in the coming period of time, you can try to go these places to take some pictures for a memory.
The first place I want to introduce is the scene in this picture which is the steps in front of Suga Jinjia.
Address： Sugamachi 5-banchi, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo
Access： Take the subway Marunouchi Line and get off in Yotsuya 3-chome Station, 7-minute-walk from the station
The second place you can go to is the traffic lights near to the Shinjuku Police Office which you can take the subway Marunouchi Line again from Yotsuya 3-chome Station directly to Shinjuku Station. It only takes several minutes.
The next location is the Hodokyo near the Shinanomachi Station. You can take the Sobu Line from Shinjuku Station directly to Shinanomachi Station which only takes 5 minutes.
And the one which is also near to the Shinanomachi Station is the distant view of the docomo tower. It will be convenient for you to take the pictures of two scenes in just one place.
