Bakemonogatari Osaka City

First of all, we would like to introduce you to the holy land of "Bakemonogatari ".
This one is a late-night fantasy science fiction that is very much like a late-night anime, but also appeals very well to the general public,
The reason is the media mix, and since it has been pushed in libraries, etc., it is familiar to children, and for the adult generation, the pachinko/pachislot machines have become very popular, and it is a work that has been introduced to sell its name to a wide range of people, and it is a work whose name recognition is firmly raised above its quality. It can be said that this is a work that is more well-known than its quality.

Tenjinbashi, or the center of Osaka City, appears in a surprisingly large number of Bakemonogatari works.
Osaka Prefecture is not the main setting of the festival; as a result of meticulous location scouting, they have succeeded in making every part of Japan a sacred place.
Tenjinbashi, in particular, is a representative point where one can experience the feeling of being in Osaka, and its lively shopping street is known as the longest in Japan.
Eating and drinking is also recommended.

"Kuroko no Basketball "Osaka City Central Gymnasium

This is the classic sporty and handsome anime that took the world by storm and made middle and high school girls writhe in agony just a short time ago.
The authentic basketball scenes and the appeal of the cool characters grabbed the hearts of young girls.
The gymnasium is the very place for battles, although basketball is the only sport that is depicted and actual tournament scenes are depicted.

This gymnasium is very well known to Osaka residents.
It has become a prestigious place for actual club activities and events, and is a very well-known and familiar place. It is no exaggeration to say that it is a place where many Osaka residents visited and engaged in activities when they were young.
The park, which is not that close to the station and suddenly appears in the midst of an exquisite city, and its unique design, which may or may not blend in with the surroundings, have a very strong presence and are very impressive.
The work is not set in Osaka, but only this gymnasium is depicted and the structure is understandable to those who understand it.

Name: Osaka Central Gymnasium
Address: 3-1-40 Tanaka, Minato-ku, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
Access: about 8 minutes walk from Asashiobashi Station, Chuo Line

Ryo no oshigoto! In front of Tsutenkaku Tower, etc.

This work is an anime based on a novel modeled on Shogi (Japanese chess).
The authentic and bee-oriented development and structure of the work is very hot to watch, and it became a topic of conversation due to its hard-edged style and heavy attack of cute characters that seems to transcend the boundaries of a novel.
It is a work of longevity that continues to this day and is unique in the Lano-Kai.
This work is also a topic of discussion from a story perspective, as the association between reality and the frivolous ronobe has become blurred with the rise of players such as Yoshiharu Hanyu and Fujii.
If you want to feel passionate about chess in these days of excitement, please read this book.

The area in front of Tsutenkaku Tower, such as Imamiya, is the deepest area in Osaka.
It is an area that showers Osaka with very touristy old men with strong habits, affable older brothers, a mixture of commerce and laughter, and colorful and flamboyant anything goes, and the atmosphere is well portrayed in the work.
Here is a deep battleground where the heroine girl trained in chess in the wild, as well as a goateed strong character in a leopard print outfit.
A great veteran of the world of the novel, this is a work that is worth mentioning and seeing once.

Name: Tsutenkaku

CLANNAD Kansai University

This one has become one of the most famous animation masterpieces of an era long ago.
It is an extremely well-received work with an emotional story called "crying game" and a horror story between characters, and has received very good support in the anime as well.
The love story is also very carefully depicted and grabs the viewer's attention well. It is interesting to note that although the main characters are high school students, Kansai University appears as the central setting.
Kansai University is a particularly prominent university in Osaka Prefecture and is a prestigious private university that is well known to Kansai residents.

Kansai University is located in a wonderful place with a lively Osaka-like atmosphere, a relatively fashionable and all-in-one campus, and a moderately prosperous student town, which is a kind of dream destination for university students in the Kansai region.
I mentioned that the secret of its popularity lies in the surrounding environment, and such a fashionable and beautiful area has also appeared in the anime.
For example, the rows of cherry trees in front of Kandai and the beautiful university buildings that blend in with the nature of the campus itself.
These are somewhat romantic and intelligent, and fit in with the elegant atmosphere of the style.

Name: Kansai University Senriyama Campus (Kansai University Senriyama Campus)
Address: 3-3-35, Yamate-cho, Suita-shi, Osaka

Detective Conan Nakanoshima Library

"Detective Conan "is a top-runner animation that has been at the top of the Japanese market for decades, and is an outstanding masterpiece in terms of sales, name recognition, and popularity among generations.
It is not surprising that this work is set in Osaka in its long history, but it is a work that has many fans, so it is impossible not to feature it.

"There was an episode of Conan called Naniwa's Serial Murder Case "that seemed to literally take place in Osaka.
The setting is Nakanoshima, Osaka. It is one of Osaka's most fashionable areas, a modern, Western-style town where nature and the city are in harmony, within walking distance from Umeda.
The area is a fashionable town with green parks along the riverbanks, brick buildings that look like they have been there since the Taisho era, and buildings of large corporations, which have become even more popular as a result of discoveries on Instagram.
The Nakanoshima Library is a similarly very old-fashioned and hard-edged library with a spiral staircase in the atrium that gives it an overwhelming sense of dignity.

Name: Nakanoshima Library
Address: 1-2-10 Nakanoshima, Kita-ku, Osaka City
Access: Osaka Metro (Subway) Midosuji Line "Yodoyabashi "Station, Keihan Line "Yodoyabashi "Station (Exit 1) approx. 300 meters to the northeast

Saki Suita City

Saki is an anime based on a manga that has sold its unique setting of a beautiful girl playing mah-jongg, and offers enjoyment from various angles, including cute, hot, and fiery intelligent battles.
Osaka is a particularly interesting choice as the setting for the second season, and Suita City is also an interesting and austere choice.
It may not be a popular destination for tourists because it is a bit far from the city center, but it is a must-see for fans.

Suita has a well-established impression of being a fashionable and elegant town with a taste for the countryside, with its Expo Park and Kansai University as mentioned above, but places such as Senriyama Station, the setting for this work, appear frequently, especially because it is a place where people live.
The area looks good with the brown Hankyu train, and is one of the most serene and quiet residential areas in Osaka. The urban planning, which perfectly matches nature and modernity, is beautifully depicted in the work, and viewers in Osaka Prefecture are roaring with joy as they see it.
The chic side stories that make you feel amidst the heated mahjong battles are also noteworthy.

Name: Senriyama Station (Senriyama-Yamashi)
Address: 5-1-3 Senriyama-Nishi, Suita City, Osaka, Japan
Access: Hankyu Railway Senriyama Station

Kemuriksa Umeda Station

This last one is set in the middle of Umeda, the most central area of Osaka.
It is one of the biggest terminals where tourists, foreigners, and other visitors come and go on the Shinkansen bullet train, and where various lines, mainly JR lines, come and go.
Osaka is precisely the place to be, one of a cluster of huge Japanese cities where the cutting edge of fashion, business, and entertainment is as fast and furious as in Tokyo.

Umeda is Umeda, but Hankyu's Umeda Station is recognized as the main sacred place for this work.
Although it is a short walk from Osaka Station, it is directly connected to the station and is the gateway to Kyoto and Kobe.
The quaint brown train is modern and stylish and appears in the work.
This is a work with a bit of science fiction mixed in, and the fact that it is drawn in such a way that Umeda, which is usually crowded with people, has been devastated and is devoid of people, seems new to the Osaka residents.
The unique world view, which is not easily seen, is the result of the famous director's skill. Please come and see this hidden masterpiece.

Name: Hankyu Umeda Station
Address: 1-1-2 Shibata, Kita-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka
Access: Hankyu Railway Umeda Station
