References to Real-Life LocationsEdit

The most notable reference to a real-life location is the riverbank. The well-known promo image of the series - featuring the main trio and Yassan on the bank - is based on the view near the Ichikawa bridge that joins Ichikawa, Chiba to Tokyo across the Edo river.

Other minor locations shown only in the anime opening song are based on places near the Kami-Igusa railway station in Suginami, Tokyo. For instance, Yoshitake is shown at a vending machine near a public bath. The bath resembles one (which no longer exists) that used to be next to the station.

For a comprehensive comparison of these places with their anime depictions, complete with pictures and Google Maps links, see the external links below.
