5 Centimeters Per Second - Kanae's House

Another 5 Centimeters Per Second location I checked out in Tanegashima is Kanae's house.

Kanae waves goodbye to Takaki.

The rest of the streets around the house doesn't seem to match though. Maybe it did in the past?

5 Centimeters Per Second - Downtown Nakatane

In 5 Centimeters Per Second there's 2 quick shots from downtown Nakatane in Tanegashima.



Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 43m35s


View towards the south. No rocket launch from Tanegashima Space Center while I were here.




Image from 5 Centimeters Per Second - 31m33s


This shot is the view from room 205 in Green Hotel Sakae. Supposedly Makoto Shinkai stayed here while doing location scouting in Tanegashima.




I didn't stay here, but I asked the staff if I could take a picture from the room and they said yes. The hotel entrance is here on the right side of the building and not in the front of the building, even if there's doors and windows at the front.




They had a 5 Centimeters Per Second poster in the hotel. I've marked a path from the place in the first shot above to this hotel in the map below.

5 Centimeters Per Second - Old Tanegashima Airport

In addition to Robotics;Notes, the old Tanegashima Airport is also shown in 5 Centimeters Per Second.

This piece of fence is still here.

Kanae is left behind.

The fence is further away from the terminal building than in the movie.

Robotics Notes - Old Tanegashima Airport

Another location shown all the time in Robotics;Notes is the old Tanegashima Airport where the Robot Research Club builds the first GunBuild robot. The old Tanegashima Airport should not be confused with New Tanegashima Airport of course.



Image from Episode 1 - 10m05s


Image from Episode 1 - 22m14s


The old terminal building. This shot is shown throughout the series and in the first ED.




Image from Episode 7 - 05m55s


This airport was closed in 2006 when New Tanegashima Airport opened.




Image from Episode 14 - 16m29s


Some of the grounds seems to be used for storing various building materials now.




Image from Episode 4 - 07m52s


The hotel across the road from the airport seems to have been demolished sometime in 2014.




Image from Episode 4 - 08m07s


This was the hotel where Frau moved to in the anime.




Image from Episode 1 - 10m10s


There's still this hangar building at the airport runway though, but you need to go to the opposite side of the airport to get pictures of the front. I've marked a path from the location of the airport terminal to where you can get pictures of the hangar in the map below.




Image from Episode 1 - 01m44s


Kai relaxing outside the hangar in the first OP.




Image from Episode 1 - 01m46s


And Akiho offers him Yoghurppe.




Image from Episode 1 - 19m36s


There's no hand crank on the side of the hangar.




Image from Episode 1 - 20m45s


The floodlights are closer to the hangar in real life.




Image from Episode 16 - 13m16s


Closeup of the floodlights.




Image from Episode 22 - 22m23s


Side view of the hangar from near the terminal building.




Image from Episode 6 - 18m35s


And a slightly closer look.

Robotics Notes - Convenience Store

One of the main locations in Robotics;Notes is the convenience store, which is located in Nakatane in Tanegashima in real life.



Image from Episode 1 - 13m42s


Outside the convenience store.




They had this anime location marker outside so I knew I were in the right place.




Image from Episode 1 - 13m46s


It's named Ai Shop Nagai instead of Irei Shop like in the anime.




Image from Episode 2 - 09m28s


Inside the store.




Image from Episode 12 - 07m35s


View towards the cashier area. If you look closely you can see a Robotics;Notes poster on the left in the picture.




Image from Episode 1 - 15m11s


I bought Skal in the store.




Image from Episode 5 - 19m40s


Bench outside the store.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m13s


The area between the pillar on the left and the store windows is narrower than in the anime.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m14s


Everything else except the placement of the pillar matches though.




Image from Episode 5 - 20m47s


This other pillar also seems to be placed further away from the store in the show. You can see the traffic sign and utility pole between the vending machines and the pillar in the screenshot, but it doesn't seem possible to get a similar shot in real life.




Image from Episode 6 - 04m16s


Another shot of the outsides. This shot is used several times in different episodes.




Image from Episode 6 - 04m29s


You can see a poster of Akiho in the window in the picture.




Image from Episode 6 - 04m21s


Akiho is holding bottles of Skal in the poster.




Image from Episode 9 - 00m13s


Nae sitting outside the store. Quite impossible to get a matching shot because of the pillar here.




Image from Episode 12 - 06m57s


And Daitoku sitting outside the store in another episode.




Image from Episode 12 - 21m46s


Across the street from the convenience store is also this takoyaki shop that was shown in the second ED. I've marked a path from the convenience store to this place in the map below.
