K-On - Shirakawa-dori Locations

I also visited the K-On locations along Shirakawa-dori south of the Fast Food Place, not to be confused with the locations south of the Shirakawa-dori Kitayama crossroad.



Image from S2E1 - 00m59s


This location at the Shirakawa-dori Kitaoji crossroad has been completely changed from when the anime was made.




Image from S2E1 - 01m07s


These buildings a bit further down the street are still the same though.




Image from S1E14 - 07m32s


The building on the left here shown in episode 14 of the first season still matches.




Image from S1E14 - 07m46s


But the other building past the parking lot has changed.




Image from S2E5 - 15m11s


Another change is the building across the street that has been changed from an amusement space with batting cages into a supermarket.




Image from S2E3 - 17m44s


Image from S2E3 - 17m43s


The building shown in episode 14 of the first season is also shown in the second season.

Mio and Ritsu runs to school here.




Image from S2E3 - 17m52s


Image from S2E3 - 17m53s


Image from S2E3 - 17m57s


Past the parking lot.




Image from S2E3 - 18m00s


And the building that doesn't match any more.




Image from S2E3 - 18m02s


The fence has been removed too.




Image from S2E3 - 18m18s


The wall on the right here still matches.

The wall is also shown in the movie.




Image from S1E1 - 02m34s


And this is possibly the same wall seen in the first season OP as well.




Image from S1E1 - 02m48s


The wall is right next to the Kyoto University of Art and Design, which I've visited before.




Image from S2E11 - 14m10s


The last location. On the left here is at Dolittle Animal Hospital.




Image from S2E17 - 10m14s


Dolittle Animal Hospital on the left here too. In the middle here is the Kitashirakawa Bettocho bus stop.




Image from S2E17 - 10m16s


Everybody walking past the animal hospital building.




Image from S2E17 - 10m19s


Side view.




Image from S2E17 - 10m21s


They check out a rental studio here because the club room is undergoing renovations. The building is still the same, but the rental studio here has closed.




Image from S2E17 - 15m09s


Azusa and Yui heading back from the rental studio.




Image from S2E17 - 15m12s


This place is on the opposite side of the street.




Image from S2E17 - 15m20s


The animal hospital is on the right in this shot.




Image from S2E17 - 15m23s


Sawako arrives by car.




Image from S2E17 - 15m25s


Across the street on the left here is another supermarket, which used to be a bookstore. I stood right next to the animal hospital entrance when I took this picture.




Image from S2E17 - 15m32s


Sawako informs everybody that the club room renovations have been finished.




Image from S2E17 - 15m49s


View across the street.




Image from S2E27 - 06m14s


The supermarket building which used to be a bookstore was also shown in a later episode, including the insides which no longer matches of course.
