Clannad After Story - Riverside

Locations along Kizu River near Yawatashi Station is shown in several episodes of Clannad After Story.



Image from Episode 08 - 11m15s


This is where the two gangs have a fight in episode 8.




Image from Episode 08 - 11m44s


Nagisa offers everybody Sanae's bread.




Image from Episode 08 - 12m03s


Together with a certain jam it's a potent combination...




Image from Episode 08 - 12m30s


That knocks everybody who tries it out.




Image from Episode 08 - 13m36s


So it's left up to Tomoya to fight the rival gang leader. I didn't go into the river itself to get pictures, so this one will have to do.




Image from Episode 14 - 07m10s


In episode 14, Tomoya is shown walking home near the river. The road curves in the opposite direction here in real life.




Image from Episode 14 - 07m19s


Closeup of Tomoya who spots...




Image from Episode 14 - 07m20s


Nagisa. The buildings on the right here are different in real life.




Image from Episode 14 - 07m39s


Tomoya and Nagisa continues walking down the road together.




Image from Episode 15 - 11m04s


Another shot from the next episode.




Image from Episode 15 - 19m24s


Slightly different shot in the same direction.




Image from Episode 15 - 19m27s


This is the same structure that can be seen on the left in the previous picture.




Image from Episode 15 - 19m43s


It's not the same angle but you can see the same building on the left here.




Image from Episode 15 - 21m10s


This is as close to the actual river I went.




Japanese Clannad After Story volume 3 DVD cover


Yukine is shown sitting at this place on the cover of the third DVD volume of the anime in Japan. The same image was also used as the menu image of the second Blu-Ray. I couldn't get the same shot since it's not allowed to go out on the bridge in real life.




Image from Episode 01 - 02m11s


The bridge out to the structure is also shown in the OP.




Image from Episode 01 - 02m14s


Another place shown in the OP is this railway bridge that crosses the Kizu River.




Image from Episode 01 - 22m27s


And in the ED you can see this underpass that's next to the railway bridge. I've marked a path starting here, going past the fight location and ending up where Tomoya and Nagisa walk together in the map below, even though Google gives a really bad path between the locations.

Clannad After Story - Side Road

A short walk from Kandai-Mae Station in Osaka there's a small side road that's shown in Clannad After Story.



Image from Episode 10 - 16m50s


On the side road facing southeast.




Image from Episode 11 - 05m12s


Tomoya and Nagisa walking down the side road.




Image from Episode 11 - 05m21s


They pass this house.




Image from Episode 11 - 05m26s


The side road is the one on the right here.




Image from Episode 11 - 05m34s


A new building has been built in front of the two seen in the background in the anime.




Image from Episode 11 - 05m37s


You can barely see the side road in the picture here behind the vending machine.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m15s


It's quite difficult to get the exact angle here because of the utility pole at the bottom of the side road.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m16s


Tomoya and Nagisa walks past this building.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m24s


And stops in front of this vending machine. This is the same vending machine as above.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m28s


Bicycle rack next to the vending machine.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m37s


Reverse view.




Image from Episode 12 - 03m56s


This is at the top of the side road.




Image from Episode 12 - 04m04s


The sign behind Nagisa still seems to be the same.




Image from Episode 12 - 04m07s


The garage door seems to have been removed since the show was made.




Image from Episode 16 - 03m13s


This is another road nearby which is also shown in the anime. I've marked a path from the side road locations to this place in the map below.
