The Eccentric Family - Minami-Komatsushima Station

After Yajiro is seen near the Great Seto Bridge in The Eccentric Family, he next travels to Minami-Komatsushima Station.

At the station platform. Unlike a lot of other shows, the station name actually matches.

In front of the station building.

He checks out this map outside the station.

Closeup of the map.




They also had this statue of tanuki raccoon dogs outside the station, which is fitting for The Eccentric Family.




I saw a location map for the manga Himesama Tanuki no Koizanyou here too, which also features tanuki raccoon dogs.




And a poster of Ohenro: Hachi Hachi Aruki. I saw the Shikoku design Coca Cola bottle with these characters on it at Kan-onji Station.

Haruhi Suzumiya - Ferry

In addition to checking out the port area of Tokushima I also took the Nankai ferry since it was shown in Haruhi Suzumiya.



Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 00m48s


The ferry runs between Tokushima and Wakayama.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 04m13s


Unfortunately the ferry that was shown in the anime was retired in 2007, so the one I took didn't match.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 04m33s


There were some similarities though like these green sailcloth covered walkways.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 04m39s


The seating areas outside were different.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 05m12s


These rows of plastic chairs didn't match either.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 06m15s


The insides were slightly more similar.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 06m18s


Sitting area with vending machines.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 06m22s


Area where you could lie down.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 05m28s


They play cards in the area where you can lie down in the shown.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 06m44s


There's just open shelves here without any door.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 07m05s


The cushions behind Haruhi here are the same though.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 07m37s


Kyon buys drinks from one of the vending machines.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 07m43s


They only had apple juice boxes and not cans for sale.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 2 - 20m26s


The outsides of the ferry is also shown in Remote Island Syndrome Part 2.

Side of the ferry.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 2 - 20m37s


Haruhi and the others sitting outside in this episode.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 2 - 22m02s


Mooring winches.




They also had ferry mascot character decorations, just like I saw at the ferry terminal and on the side of the ship.




Inside too.



No location map since it's just a ferry running between Tokushima and Wakayama.

Haruhi Suzumiya - Tokushima Port

In an episode of Haruhi Suzumiya the port area of Tokushima is shown, so I went and had a look. The closest train station is Tokushima Station which is a bit far away, but there's a bus from Tokushima Station that runs to Nankai Ferry Terminal one can take.



Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m02s


This is the Nankai ferry which runs between Wakayama and Tokushima.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 00m56s


Back of the ferry.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m15s


Haruhi and the others exits the ferry.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m23s


And walks through this passage.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m31s


This is the Nankai Tokushima Ferry Terminal.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m36s


The areas around the ferry terminal doesn't match what was shown in the anime.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m38s


Just a bunch of warehouses here in real life.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m40s


There's no stairs in front of the ferry terminal building, but otherwise it matches.




Image from Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 - 09m48s


No speedboats here like in the show.




The ferry company got these mascot characters called Kirara Takano and Mai Awano.




They were on this vending machine.




On the terminal building.




Even on the side of the ferry itself.




And they also had character goods.
