Code Geass fan? Visiting or residing in Japan?

 

You will love this post.

 

I would like to show you three real-life locations in Japan that inspired some scenes in past episodes of Code Geass.

 

As opposed other Anime like Sword Art Online or One Punch Man, where the landmarks featured stay true to the real-life versions used as inspiration, Code Geass takes the liberty to artistically modify and complement popular landmarks to merge them into the anime’s theme and ambiance.

 

But, it is still worth seeing them if you are a mega fan of Code Geass like me.

 

Here are three places exclusively for Code Geass fans.

 

Kururugi Shrine

At the end of episode 16 of Code Geass R2, Lelouch calls Suzaku and asks him to save Nunnally.  Suzaku says yes, but on the condition that Lelouch comes to Area 11.

 

The place they met at was at Kururugi’s shrine.

 

In real life, the name of the temple is Shirakawa Hachiman. It is located in Gifu Prefecture (around three hours by train from Tokyo).

Address : 〒501-5627 Gifu-ken, Ōno-gun, Shirakawa-mura, Ogimachi, 荻町556番地

 

By the way, it is the same temple that appears in Higurashi No Naku Koro (When They Cry).

 

Street in Shinjuku

 

In the first OVA of Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito (Akito the Exiled) part of the war take place in Shinjuku. The featured street is next to the department store Yamada Denki.

 

 

Address: 3 Chome-23-7 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tōkyō-to 160-0022

 

 

Mount Fuji

 

Finally, in several episodes of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion we can see Mount Fuji with some alterations.

That was all the places that I was able to find. If you know of any others please leave a comment and I would be more than happy to add it to this post.
