Kimi No Na Wa In Real Life

) captured the heart of millions. It toppled Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away and claimed the throne as the highest-grossing animated film of all time.

Relive the tale of star-crossed lovers, Taki and Mitsuha by going on a Your Name pilgrimage and visit the real-life locations (or locations that inspired many parts of the film) all in Tokyo.


The restaurant that Taki and Okudera-spai dined at during their date is called Salon de the Rond and is located on the second floor of The National Art Ctre. To get a better view, I suggest going up to the third floor. The restaurant ops at 11AM.

There are also some shots of the Art Ctre during the date like the brown-lined walls and glass-panelled directions. Going inside the facility is free of charge.

For their date, Taki and Okudera-spai meet up at Yotsuya Station. To get a better view, take the Akasaka exit and look back. Unfortunately, there was construction going on wh I visited so the actual part of the station that is in the film did not have the Yotsuya Station sign (the right side) so I opted for the other side.

The stairs that Taki is se panting at in the film is also here. Walk to the left and you'll see a flight of stairs.

It's a little bit of walk from Yotsuya Station to Suga Shrine so I suggest using Google maps to navigate. Once you spot Lawson 100 store, turn and walk a little until you spot these signs (location on Google Map). Unfortunately, the sign is too high for me to take the actual angle as in the film (!).

The intersection also appears in the film; however, there was construction going on wh I wt so I was not able to take a shot. But walking further, you'll recognize this spot which is also in the film wh Taki was finding the way (location on Google map).

From there, take the left and keep walking and you'll see a vding machine that welcomes you to the Holy Land of Your Name. You know you're near the sacred spot.

The stairs to Suga Shrine is perhaps the most iconic location of the film. The first promotional materials is set here and film's hopeful ding also takes place here.


The stairs itself is nothing special. Locals past by it normally. But having se the film, the significance of it changes particularly wh you think about Taki and Mitsuha meeting here. While the view is not a hundred perct similar as it is in the film, the resemblance is pretty close.

One of the best things about these spots is that they're not crowded. They're everyday, mundane places that people use or pass by. Yet, to those of us who has watched the film, the spots take on a whole new meaning as we imagine ourselves taking Mitsuha and Taki's footsteps.

The following set of locations that are featured in Your Name are a little bit more off the radar in the film, but they still show where Makoto Shinkai drew inspiration from. These real-life locations also makes Taki and Mitsuha’s journey feel much closer to us.

Exiting from Shinanomachi Station, the NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building is visible from your right side. This is also tak from the same angle that is in featured in the film. Be careful not to take pictures in the middle of the road as the shooting area is nestled betwe two intersecting roads.


In your front, there is a flight of stairs to a pedestrian bridge. This is the same pedestrian that Taki is in after his date with Okudera-spai.

The bridge is somewhat significant in the film as well because this is wh Taki starts to think about and ev realize his feelings for Mitsuha.

In the film, Yunika Vision is where the fall of the Tiamat comet is broadcast. The area is crowded and busy so be careful wh taking photos not to block the pedestrian crossing.

This intersection is near the Shinjuku Police Station and the famous LOVE statue. It appears during a montage sce after Mitsuha and Taki realized that they’ve switched bodies.

Similar to other spots in the film, be sure not to take a photo in the middle of the road. It would be recommded to use a wide angle ls to get an exact shot of the one featured in the film.

And that’s it for the Tokyo Your Name spots. A few other mtions would include Cafe La Bohéme, the inspiration for the restaurant where Taki and Okudera-spai work and Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery which was briefly shown wh Mitsuha (in Taki’s body) is excited to be exploring Tokyo.
