Your Lie in April - Doryo Bridge

On this trip I decided to check out the bridge that's called Doryo Bridge in Your Lie in April. The closest train station is Hibarigaoka Station, which is a bit far from the bridge, but you can take a bus from the train station to Hinomishita bus stop which is closer.

This bridge can be seen in the first OP of the show.




Image from Episode 1 - 21m43s


And the first ED as well.




Image from Episode 5 - 00m11s


The bridge is called Maedori-bashi Bridge instead of Doryo Bridge in real life.




Image from Episode 5 - 00m20s


Full view of the bridge. It was a really sunny day when I was here.




Image from Episode 5 - 00m37s


Tsubaki jumps with Kousei from the bridge into the river in a scene from their childhood.




Image from Episode 5 - 00m56s


The river here is called Kurome river.




Image from Episode 5 - 00m58s


Kousei wants to jump again.




Image from Episode 5 - 11m48s


Later in the same episode Tsubaki and Kashiwagi crosses the bridge together.




Image from Episode 5 - 12m15s


The riverbanks are the same.




Image from Episode 5 - 12m22s


The houses near the riverbank is also the same.

Panning shot of the bridge towards the end of the episode.




Image from Episode 5 - 16m30s


Kaori plays hopscotch with some kids on the bridge.




Image from Episode 5 - 16m37s


And then she greets Kousei.




Image from Episode 5 - 16m43s


The riverbank here matches less in this shot.




Image from Episode 5 - 17m52s


Kaori and Kousei talk.




Image from Episode 5 - 19m30s


And then Kaori...




Image from Episode 5 - 19m34s


Pulls out all the stops and...




Image from Episode 5 - 19m52s


Dives right in.




Image from Episode 5 - 19m54s


Kousei observes.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m29s


Before he also jumps.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m52s


I didn't dare to jump in myself, so I got this shot from the riverbank instead ^_^.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m57s


A similar shot as from the beginning of the episode.




Image from Episode 11 - 18m20s


The bridge can also be seen towards the end of episode 11. The buildings in the background here match.




Image from Episode 11 - 18m27s


As does the buildings on the other side. I've marked a path between the buildings on each side of the bridge in the map below.




Image from Episode 11 - 18m38s


No fireflies around when I was here.




Image from Episode 11 - 19m08s


Kaori catches one and lets it go.

    1. The water didn't seem very deep so I don't think I'd recommend trying.
