Steins;Gate - Shrine Location

I was staying in a hotel near Akihabara while in Japan, so I checked out some Steins;Gate locations. First on the list was Yanagimori shrine. This was the location of the Yanabayashi shrine in the anime and one of the closest train stations is Akihabara station.

This is the entrance to the shrine.

And the purification font.

A few closeups of this font was shown in the anime.

The actual shrine building does NOT match the anime, but it was shown in a quick shot in one episode. The shrine building shown in the anime is in another location in Tokyo.

Near the shrine you'll also find this bridge that was shown in the anime.

This was where Okabe and Ruka met up.

You can actually see the shrine from the bridge. I've marked the path from the shrine to the bridge on the location map.

On the way back to the hotel I saw this that reminded me a little bit of Steins;Gate. I thought I'd include this image even if it's not really a match shot at all. ^_^
