5 Centimeters Per Second - School

The school shown in 5 Centimeters Per Second is based on Tanegashima Chuo High School in real life.

5 Centimeters Per Second - School Roads

There's 2 different roads in Tanegashima that's shown as school roads in 5 Centimeters Per Second, so I went and checked out both.

At the first road.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 42m01s


Takaki and Kanae walking along the road.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 42m05s


There's less utility poles here in real life.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 55m02s


At the second road.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 33m11s


Slightly further away they have another anime location marker, just like at the convenience store shown in the movie.




Closeup of the anime location marker.

The utility poles here at the second road seems to match better than the ones in the very first shot from the first road for some reason. I've marked a path from the first road to the second road in the map below.

5 Centimeters Per Second - Fields

In 5 Centimeters Per Second there's also some fields in Tanegashima that's shown.

Kanae and Takaki sitting in the fields.

This is the view towards the south. The wind turbine in the distance is located in Nakatane Chuo Sports Park.

Road through the fields.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 37m47s


This part of the road near the fields has been modernized since the movie was made.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 37m51s


There are a lot of fields in this area, so these might not be the exact fields shown in the movie, but they do have a view of the wind turbine and are next to the road shown in the shot above.

This tree here was the only one I saw that was even slightly similar to the ones in the fields shown in the movie.
