Hyouka - Bike Ride

In episode 4 of Hyouka we see Hotaro and Satoshi riding their bicycles out to Chitanda's house, so I did the same thing. The easiest way to do this is to rent an actual bicycle from one of the many bicycle shop in Takayama and use that.

I've ordered the pictures from the north west to south east starting here at Sukerokubashi Bridge which crosses the Enakogawa River close to Kawakami Residence Historical Park.

Hotaro is cycling in front of this small playground. The blue swing shown in the second screenshot seems to have been removed.

I took this picture from the Kawakami Residence Historical Park showing the area across the river. The buildings shown in the anime has been replaced with a parking lot.

The building on the left here is gone as well, but the others still match.

The right side here matches except for the big sign next to the utility pole.

The other side of the big sign actually matches more. Some of the buildings on the right in this direction also seems to be closer in look to the buildings shown on the left in the screenshot from the anime above.

This place with the torii gate is shown in episode 5 when they're on their way back from Chitanda's house. It's located in between the places shown in episode 4 though, so I've added it here.

Back to episode 4 and everything here matches, except the house on the left that's been removed.

There's only the foundation left of the house that used to be here.

The road leading up to Chitanda's house which is shown in the middle of the screenshot here.

The road is on a slight incline as seen in this picture.

Similar looking fields. I've marked a path through all the locations ending up here in the map below.

The actual house is located elsewhere in Japan, so in real life there's a shrine called Sakuragaoka Hachiman Shrine here.
