Weathering With You Real Life Locations in Tokyo (Tenki No Ko)

“Weathering With You” was the most anticipated anime film of 2019 due to the fact that it was made by the same creators of “Your Name”. If you’ve seen the movie you know that it is a great story that gripped viewers all over the world. I’m sure I speak for us all when I say it was extremely sad when the movie ended and it left me wanting more. Well, it doesn’t have to end there. You can experience the movie in REAL LIFE by going to these places that inspired places that are featured in the movie! If you’re a fan of Weathering With You and you’re going to Tokyo, you HAVE to check out these real life locations!

1. Yoyogi Kaikan, Shibuya

Yoyogi Kaikan features at the beginning of the movie “Weathering With You” with Hina climbing up the building. The anime did a great job of portraying the building and it’s almost identical to the real life version! This building in Tokyo is an abandoned 7 story building located in Shibuya close to Yoyogi Park. The vibe of the whole building is quite chilling and scary, you can really see a different side of Tokyo by going there!

When Hina reaches the top of the building she walks up to a small rooftop shrine, unfortunately this shrine is not located at the top of Yoyogi Kaikan, it is instead based off of the Ginza shrine “Asahi Inari Shrine”. This shrine is located on the rooftop of modern office building, which shows how Japanese traditional culture and modern culture are working together in this modern day. The shrine is super unique and is somewhere you should definitely visit in Tokyo!

3. Koenji Hikawa Shrine, Koenji

As you can see from the pictures above, the shrine in the film is clearly based off of the real life shrine ‘Koenji Hikawa Shrine’. Both the shrines have this famous ema display (wooden plaques which wishes are written on in Japan). What’s interesting is that this real life shrine is actually a shrine dedicated to weather! So that’s probably why it ended up in the film. You can buy these plaques, write a wish on it and display stat the shrine! (Most of the wishes are about the weather)!

After the anime had it’s debut, the fans were quick to realize that this hill looked familiar and so they went to search for it. It didn’t take them long to realize that it was “Nozoki Hill” which is located in Takada, Toshima City. The hill quickly became famous and Japanese anime fans flocked there to take pictures of it! If you’re in Tokyo and you loved ‘Weathering With You’, you should definitely adventure out to find this hill…it will give you an excuse to explore new parts of Tokyo!

When the film starts, Hina is pictured standing on top of an extremely tall building with the view of the city below her. The shot is truly amazing, and guess what…you can go there in real life!! This shot was inspired from the real life viewing deck of Roppongi Hills. This is their outdoor viewing deck which is said to be the tallest out door viewing deck in Tokyo! The view is truly amazing, I’d recommend everyone go here if you’re in Tokyo…even those who haven’t seen Weathering With You will love it!
