Flying Witch - Pond

Another location shown in the first episode of Flying Witch is a small pond located at Tokiwano-noson Park.

Image from Episode 1 - 17m01s

It was cloudy when I visited so Mount Iwaki wasn't visible.

Image from Episode 2 - 14m19s

Around the pond I also saw what seemed to be bakke butterbur sprouts which was featured in the second episode of the show, although in a different location.

Flying Witch - Train Station Revisit

Next I took a Flying Witch picture inside Hirosaki Station which I missed the last time I visited.

Image from Episode 1 - 00m16s

This is inside the station building looking out at the tracks through the windows.

In the station they also had this ad which was drawn by Chihiro Ishizuka the creator of the Flying Witch manga.

Image from Episode 1 - 02m37s

In the first episode of the show Makoto takes a bus from Hirosaki Station and the bus passes this location. I've marked this place on the map below.

Flying Witch - Kuramoto House

I also checked out the location of the house where the Kuramoto family and Makoto lives in the show this time.

Image from Episode 1 - 01m38s

Image from Episode 1 - 04m33s

Image from Episode 8 - 21m37s

The house as shown in the OP and several episodes. It's actually located to the east of Hirosaki-Higashikōmae Station in real life and nowhere near any of the other Flying Witch locations.

Image from Episode 11 - 11m43s

Slightly closer view.

Image from Episode 2 - 02m58s

Image from Episode 3 - 12m48s

Image from Episode 5 - 12m41s

Another closeup of the entrance area.

Image from Episode 1 - 01m10s

And one of the roof from the OP.

Image from Episode 7 - 00m18s

The building to the right of the house is also similar to what's shown in the anime.

Image from Episode 7 - 00m36s


Image from Episode 5 - 04m06s

Image from Episode 12 - 04m57s

The fence around the house also matches.

Image from Episode 5 - 20m30s

Closeup of the fence.

Image from Episode 9 - 10m52s

You can see the other building again in this shot.

Image from Episode 9 - 11m02s

The areas outside the fence doesn't match in real life.

Image from Episode 4 - 20m15s

Image from Episode 9 - 12m45s

This is the back of the house.

Image from Episode 3 - 05m03s

There's no big field here like in the show.

Image from Episode 3 - 05m59s

And the windows are bigger in the anime.

This locations was visited on 2019/04/25.

Flying Witch - Makoto and Chito Walk

In the same episode of Flying Witch in which we see Chinatsu following Chito, we also see Makoto and Chito walking through several locations in Hirosaki together.

Image from Episode 5 - 13m10s

This is at the same road where Chinatsu was following Chito at first. I've avoided any shots of this walk where it's the exact same background though.

Image from Episode 5 - 13m13s

Makoto runs up to Chito.

Image from Episode 5 - 13m16s

Makoto checks out the building Chito stares at.

Image from Episode 5 - 13m18s

And Chito explains why the building is interesting.

Image from Episode 5 - 13m58s

Chito then takes Makoto to the place with the dog.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m00s

Makoto isn't impressed.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m02s

And thinks that Chito shouldn't tease the dog.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m16s

They continue down the street.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m20s

But then the dog manages to get loose...

Image from Episode 5 - 14m22s

And chases after Makoto and Chito. Up the street to the left here you can actually see the building that Chito stared at, so they've circled around in real life.

Image from Episode 7 - 13m55s

The reverse view of the road where the dog chases after Makoto and Chito is shown in a later episode as well.

Image from Episode 7 - 13m53s

No flowers blooming at the utility pole in the last shot when I visited.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m31s

They manage to outrun the dog and stop at this bridge.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m27s

It's named Tochinai Bridge in real life too.

Image from Episode 5 - 14m41s

I couldn't get the exact same angle here, but you can see the houses in the background that matches.

Image from Episode 5 - 15m22s

Later in the episode Nao joins Makoto and Chito near this other bridge I visited before.

Image from Episode 5 - 17m10s

I missed this shot the last time I visited though, this is the view at the north east end of the bridge.

Image from Episode 5 - 17m15s

Makoto and Chito joins Nao for a delivery. On the left here there's a brown garage.

Image from Episode 5 - 17m22s

This building with the green roof is close to the shrine gate shown in the OP.

Image from Episode 5 - 17m26s

The brown garage is on the left here again. I've marked a path from Tochinai Bridge, going past the building with the green roof, ending up here in the map below. The other locations are the same as in the Chinatsu and Chito post and the bridge I visited before.

Image from Episode 5 - 17m30s

This is the view towards where the road forks near the bus stop. The house where Nao is making the delivery in the anime here has now been torn down in real life.
