‘Noragami’ Real Life Locations in Tokyo

‘Noragami’ Real Life Locations in Tokyo


Noragami, or ノラガミ in Japanese, literally means ‘Stray God‘. The anime follows Hiyori Iki who, due to being involved in a vehicle incident, can switch between the human world and the demon/god world. She meets a nameless god who isn’t connected to any shrine called Yato. The anime follows the two as they go on many adventures together and explore their pasts and identities. Due to the ‘human realm’, which is featured in Noragami, being set in Tokyo, there are many real life locations in Tokyo that were featured in the anime! This means that you can go and visit the places in REAL LIFE! So if you’re someone who is looking to experience Noragami in real life, then make sure to keep reading to find out some locations you can explore!


Oizumi-gakuen Station Area

How the Location Appears In the Anime

There are many locations around this whole area that were featured in the anime. Just by walking around the area you will feel like you’re a part of a scene from the anime! The anime has done an amazing job of keeping the locations featured in the anime accurate to how they appear in real life! As you can see in the second set of pictures, you can tell the store in the anime is based off of this Lawson store due to it’s blue color and also the surroundings looking similar.

How To Get To the Location

This location is located in Oizumi-gakuen which can be easily accessed by taking the Fukutoshin Line (which will change to the Ikebukuro Line half way in but you should continue riding) from Shinjuku Station to Oizumi-gakuen Station. The train ride takes around 20 mins.

Yushima Tenmangu Shrine

How the Location Appears In the Anime

This location was featured in the anime when Yato paid a visit to the head of the shrine. The location looks very similar in the anime to real life and I would highly recommend visiting here, even for those who don’t know much about Noragami. The shrine itself is very peaceful and beautiful. You can write a wish on one of these small wooden plaques and hang it up which is super fun to do. Many of the plaques even feature characters from the anime which visitors have drawn!

How To Get To the Location

The shrine is easy to get to from Shinjuku. From Shinjuku Nishiguchi Station take the Oedo Line to Ueno-okachimachi Station. The train ride takes around 17 minutes.
