Air - Train Station Details

In a small area right next to Kohata Station and the main Kyoto Animation office there's a few details that seems to have been shown at the main train station in Air.

Image from Episode 1 - 18m15s

Some kind of art which you can see on the left side in the screenshot.

Image from Episode 1 - 18m56s

This clock seems to be shown as well.

Image from Episode 1 - 18m50s

Both in the same shot.

Image from Episode 1 - 19m35s

Inside Kohata Station there's one of these water faucets. The station itself is not the same as in the anime though. It's supposedly based on one that's been torn down and replaced a long time ago.

Image from Episode 12 - 17m24s

And there's this jungle gym in a kindergarten that's really really close that's shown as well.

The jungle gym, on the right in the screenshot here, was also shown in Kanon Episode 14 - 11m49s

Since I was already here I took a picture of the Kyoto Animation main office too. This time they had posters for A Silent Voice and Sound! Euphonium season two here.

And I went back to the building with the KyoAni Shop.

A Silent Voice and Sound! Euphonium posters in addition to a Violet Evergarden one at the KyoAni Shop. They're supposedly going to move the shop to a new location soon, so maybe I'll check out the new location later in 2017.

No location map since it's just next to Kowata Station and the Kyoto Animation main office.

This location was visited on 2016/10/21.

If you decide to visit this place yourself, do remember that the kindergarten still in use and you should NOT enter it.

Special thanks to the ones who went here before:

Sound! Euphonium - Eating Places Revisit

While checking out more Sound! Euphonium places I also went back and took some pictures inside the eating places in Sound! Euphonium I had visited earlier.

Inside the Saizeriya restaurant near Uji-bashi Bridge. I've marked the location of this place in the map below.

This is inside the McDonald's near Kohata Station.

The decorations on the wall behind Natsuki is different.

Image from S1E10 - 06m45s

This place is also shown in other episodes of both seasons, but they show other tables where there were people sitting when I was here.

Sound! Euphonium - Yamashiro Sports Park

In both seasons of Sound! Euphonium we see Yamashiro Sports Park (also known as Taiyogaoka). The closest train station is Shinden Station, but I walked here from Uji.

Image from S1E5 - 14m24s

This is where the SunFes in episode 5 of the first season is held.

Image from S1E5 - 18m44s

Closer look at the field.

Image from S1E5 - 14m26s

There was some kind of event going on when I was here, so I couldn't get too many pictures.

Image from S1E5 - 14m56s

The gates behind Matsumoto and Taki matches. I only got a picture from a different angle compared to the show though.

Image from S2E2 - 03m29s

Image from S2E2 - 03m31s

In the sports park there's also the pool they visit in episode 2 of the second season.

Image from S2E2 - 03m35s

Reverse angle.

The pool area seemed to be open, but there were nobody there.

Image from S2E1 - 46m02s

So I walked in an got some quick pictures.

Image from S2E2 - 08m20s

Most of the pool area seen in the show seemed to be closed off with ropes, so I didn't get any pictures that matched that well. You can see the similar outdoor showers and covered sitting places here though.

Sound! Euphonium - Uji Culture Center

In episode 11 of the first season of Sound! Euphonium we see Kaori and Reina having their second round of auditions at Uji Culture Center.

Outside the building.

This is on the left side of the building where there's a side entrance.

Image from S1E11 - 12m55s

Kaori practises here before the audition.

Image from S1E11 - 13m09s

And Yuki wishes her good luck.

Image from S1E11 - 13m10s

A bit hard taking matching pictures here on the stairs since it was a bit cramped.

Image from S1E11 - 13m23s

Inside the building on the third floor.

Image from S1E11 - 13m25s

Where Natsuki gets bumped into by...

Image from S1E11 - 13m26s

A crying Yuuko.

Image from S1E11 - 13m38s

Back to Kaori outside again.

The pipes in the background is more rusted in real-life.

Full view of the side entrance.

Image from S1E11 - 14m03s

The doors are slightly different.

Image from S1E11 - 14m08s

The tree in the background is further away from the door compared to the show.

Image from S1E11 - 14m50s

Inside, looking down at the second floor.

Image from S1E11 - 14m54s

They had some desks here, but otherwise it's the same.

And she asks Kumiko to stay with her.
