Sound! Euphonium - Bench Revisit

Yet again I went back to the Sound! Euphonium location of the bench Kumiko usually sits in to get some shots shown in some episodes from the second season that aired since last time I visited.

The bench itself isn't shown as much in the second season, but there's a shot of Mamiko, Kumiko's sister, sitting in the bench.

Image from S2E2 - 09m28s

Mizore seems to be at the same place here as Kumiko is at the start of the very first episode.

Image from S2E13 - 08m12s

Kumiko mails a letter to her sister.

Image from S2E13 - 08m15s

The mailbox is close to Kisen-bashi Bridge on the right here.

They had Sound! Euphonium posters in the window of the place to the left in the previous picture.

The bridge itself was closed because of the high water level.

I checked the tourist information office nearby yet again. Hugo_Kirara3500, which I met at the KyoAni Do Fan Days 2017 event, had signed the guestbook here.

I signed the guestbook, and a certain other Kyoto Animation fan, ultimatemegax, also signed it after I had been there. I've marked the location of the tourist information office in the map below.

I also got pictures of a scene from episode 12 of the first season starting at the bench.

Image from S1E12 - 07m02s

I've gotten a few pictures of this scene from earlier visits, but not the complete scene before now.

Kumiko hears somebody playing the trombone.

From across the river.

Image from S1E12 - 07m08s

It's Shuuichi. You can see the really high water level here.

Streetlight near the bench.

Image from S1E12 - 07m27s

Kumiko runs into Aoi on her way home.

Image from S1E12 - 07m35s

Kumiko talks to Aoi about practice and the upcoming competition.

Image from S1E12 - 07m40s

And that the band has improved.

Image from S1E12 - 07m50s

The pedestrian sign in the background is the same.

Image from S1E12 - 07m51s

Aoi wishes Kumiko good luck.

Image from S1E12 - 08m22s

Aoi moves on.

Image from S1E12 - 08m23s

And walks off.

Sound! Euphonium - Typhoon Walk

In episode 6 of the second season of Sound! Euphonium we see Kumiko walking around during a typhoon in Uji.

Image from S2E6 - 13m08s

Taki is driving around during the typhoon.

Image from S2E6 - 13m09s

You can see the matching window and door here.

Image from S2E6 - 13m10s

Thankfully there weren't any typhoons when I visited this place. I did experience a typhoon in Uji during the Ujibashi-dori Festa 2017 though.

Image from S2E6 - 14m33s

Kumiko walking down Agata street.

Image from S2E6 - 14m36s

She's walking past this parking lot.

Image from S2E6 - 14m47s

Lots of rain and wind in the anime.

Image from S2E6 - 14m58s

Kumiko spots a shop that's open.

Image from S2E6 - 14m59s

Taki speaking with the shop owner. There's no shop here in real life, but it seems to be located approximately where there's this parking lot. I've marked a path from where Taki is driving the car to this place in the map below.

Image from S2E6 - 15m05s

You can see these two buildings across the road from the flower shop if you look closely at the anime shot.

Image from S2E6 - 17m20s

Taki drives Kumiko home in his car because of all the rain. The parking lot here looks quite different in real life.

Image from S2E6 - 17m23s

It is the one in the exact spot where Taki drives though.

Image from S2E6 - 17m23s

These buildings along Agata road are the same.

Image from S2E6 - 17m26s

More matching buildings.

Image from S2E6 - 18m18s

On the right here is Agata Shrine that was shown in the first season.

Image from S2E6 - 18m20s

Taki drives past the shrine, shown on the left here.

Image from S2E6 - 19m08s

Taki drops Kumiko off near her apartment building.

Image from S2E6 - 19m10s

Lots of sun when I were here.

Image from S2E6 - 19m11s

The utility pole here matches.

Image from S2E6 - 19m29s

And the traffic light here matches as well. The apartment building where Kumiko lives is in another location of course.
