Anime, as we know, highlights Japanese culture. That includes, towns, cities, countryside’s and more fresh out of Japan.
A good example is Your Name other anime.
Someone on Reddit created a map to illustrate this.
An anime map sorted by Japanese prefectures
This map highlights various anime shows, and where the visuals those anime shows were located.
Or the locations shown in each anime.
- Summer Wars
- Please Teacher
- Ace Of The Diamond
- Waiting In Summer
All of these anime have references or highlights to Nagano in Japan.
On the other hand:
- A.I.C.O Incarnation
- Sakura Quest
- True Tears
- Wolf Children
These anime reference or highlight Toyama, a different prefecture in Japan.
Dozens of anime are all highlighted on this one map in a way that’s easy to digest.
There’s over 800+ comments on the thread with more anime mentioned by prefecture in Japan.
