Hyouka OP1 and Episode 1 「氷菓」OP1と第1話

Greetings everyone!  I have just returned from my Japan trip which included a visit to Takayama where I walked many kilometres to collect material for Hyouka.  I will be posting real-life comparision photos.

As it has been years since I've watched the anime, and my reference map only pointing out the main locations, the blog will be heavily supplemented with Google Streetview.  The progress of this blog will be entirely dependent on how quickly I manage to re-watch Hyouka!

This is the reference map that I used, officially published by the local tourism board.  This is in high-res so open in new tab for full size.

皆さんこんにちは、今回の日本旅行でテレビアニメ「氷菓」の舞台、高山に行きました。あちこち舞台を回りましたのでこのブログでアニメと実際を比べる写真を載せます。資料が無い場合はGoogle Streetviewを使わせてもらいます。高山では、こちらの舞台探検地図を発行していました。


I hope everyone will enjoy these comparison shots.
楽しく読んでもらえれば嬉しいです。

Higashiyama High School, real name Hida High School (斐太高校).  I did drop by the perimeter IRL but will wait for a more suitable comparison shot in the anime.  And I don't exactly have the right angles, just an overview shot.  Images courtesy of Kyoto Animation and Google Earth, fair use for educational purposes.

東山高校、本名は斐太高校です。こういう角度はやっぱりGoogle Earthじゃなくちゃ出来ません。

The arcade which the two characters walk along.  IRL, it's a very quiet arcade with not many locals nor tourists.  Images courtesy of Kyoto Animation and Google Streetview,  fair use for educational purposes.

Hyouka OP, Oreki walks along the street running alongside Miya River.  This is the site of the Miya River Morning Market (the meaning of the sign spanning the road), which runs from 6am-12pm (opens later in winter).  Packed with tourists and stalls in the morning, it becomes very quiet and pleasant in the afternoon when everything is packed up.

OP1で奉太郎は宮川をそって歩きます。この道では、毎朝6時から12時まで(季節によって時間が変わります)朝市をやっています。この時刻は観光客が多いです。お昼後はとても静かで気持ち良い道です。



Still on the same street, Oreki walks past a pretty looking shrine. Images courtesy of Kyoto Animation and Google Streetview, fair use for educational purposes.

Still on the same street, Oreki walks past a "Kamiyama Beef" stall (right hand side).  In real life, it is called "Hida Beef". Images courtesy of Kyoto Animation and Google Streetview, fair use for educational purposes.

まだ同じ道です。神山牛の店を通ります。実際は飛騨牛の店です。 



Speaking of which, Hida beef is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten.  It is literally so soft that it melts in your mouth.  At the same time, super tasty...and expensive!

飛騨牛は高いですけど本当に柔らかくで美味しいです。牛肉が口の中でとろける感触は初めてでした。

Continuing along the riverside, we encounter this pedestrian bridge.  This bridge still existed when my mate IRL dropped by in Autumn 2014.  He has kindly allowed the use of his photograph here.  However, it has since been dismantled as of July 2015 during my visit.  Image courtesy of Kyoto Animation, fair use for educational purposes.

この歩道橋は2015年には撤去されていました。友人が2014年に訪れた時まだありました。




On the same riverside is the spot where the entire cast is chilling.  Image courtesy of Kyoto Animation, fair use for educational purposes.

これもまた宮川朝市の道の隣です。

 

The OP also has a scene from Hie Shrine, located in a quiet area at the edge of Takayama.  Image courtesy of Kyoto Animation, fair use for educational purposes.

This has been a far longer opening post than I have been expecting.  As my re-watch of Hyouka progresses, I hope to upload more content.

これからも日本語への翻訳を続けるつもりです。お楽しみにして下さい。
