The shopping street in Kanon is based on Motomachi shopping street in Yokohama. Another location I had to visit! Motomachi-Chūkagai station is close by. In fact one of the exits of this station is named Motomachi exit which leads right to the shopping street. I arrived here late in the day, so some of the shots are dusk shots in this location.

This location is on the other end of the shopping street. Both sides have an arc entrance like this though.

Closeup of arc entrance. This is actually not a match shot since this picture was taken on the end closest to Motomachi-Chūkagai station.

This location is also at the end closest to Motomachi-Chūkagai station.

Just walk down the street and you'll spot a lot of familiar locations from Kanon.

This is maybe the most recognizable location since it was used in a lot of the episodes.

It's actually not a café in real-life though.
Image from Episode 18 - 04m51s
A lot of the side-streets have these decorations above them.

Except for the doorway that has been made smaller in the anime this matches pretty well.

The building in the background is a bit different.
Image from Episode 7 - 10m47s
Shop names have been changed of course.
Image from Episode 8 - 07m25s
Same with this one. You can still recognize the places though.
Image from Episode 10 - 06m23s
It was quite hard to get a full picture of this building.
Therefore you get two of this one. You can see the building on the left is similar too.

Another location that was shown in many episodes.

There was no taiyaki seller there when I visited though. ^_^

And to end this post, here's another shot from the end furthest away from Motomachi-Chūkagai station.
This location was visited on 2014/04/13.
