Hyouka - Shopping Street

I was in Takayama (also known as Hida-Takayama since there's some other cities with the same name) to check out the autumn festival, and while there I also checked out some places shown in Hyouka. The first one was Honmachi Shopping Street.

You can see the triangle with the clock in it.

This was during lunch hours so there was a long queue outside this ramen shop.

There's still a store selling t-shirts here.

The 2 red signs on the right are the same.

The utility pole behind Satoshi is different.

I got the shot while the crossing light was green here.

The crossing lights has been changed though.

We also see Houtarou near the same restaurant in a later episode.

He's joined by Satoshi.

The buildings on the left are wider in real life.

The windows of the restaurant are different.

This store is on the other end of Honmachi Shopping Street from the triangle with the clock. I've marked the path between the 2 in the map below.

Houtarou and Satoshi stops in front of this place.




Image from Episode 10 - 07m36s


Shops on the other side of the street from where they stopped.

The electricity meters on the right are still the same.

Image from Episode 10 - 08m14s


The place on the left is now a restaurant instead of a café.




Image from Episode 15 - 24m58s


I also managed to find this place with a fire hydrant that was shown in the anime. It's not near the shopping street though.
