Kinmoza! - Kemble Station

After taking the train from Paddington Station, Shinobu ends up at Kemble Station in Kiniro Mosaic.



Image from S1E1 - 02m00s


The train had just left when I arrived, and it was about 1 hour until the next train arrived so I didn't bother waiting around.




I later got this shot of a similar train at Paddington Station when I returned to London though.




Image from S1E1 - 02m03s


The bench to the right is missing in the anime, but otherwise it's the same.




Image from S1E1 - 02m05s


This is the exit on the west side of the station. There's also an exit on the east side of the tracks that doesn't match the show.




Image from S1E1 - 02m07s


I've marked the location of the road leading up to the west side of the station in the map below.




Image from S1E1 - 02m10s


The pattern on the ground here is the same.

Kinmoza! - Cirencester

In addition to Bibury, we also see Alice and Shinobu in the town of Cirencester in Kiniro Mosaic.



Image from S1E1 - 10m40s


The Church of St. John the Baptist in Cirencester.




Image from S1E1 - 10m42s


The market place street in front of the church.




Image from S1E1 - 10m47s


Brewery court. The Subway store behind Shinobu is still there. I've marked a path from the church to the Subway store in the map below.




Image from S1E1 - 10m44s


This bookstore where Alice buys a crossword puzzle book is also at brewery court.

Kinmoza! - Bibury

After renting a car in Chippenham, I went on to the village of Bibury that's seen in Kiniro Mosaic.



Image from S1E1 - 02m44s


Shinobu arrives. This is along the main road that goes through Bibury.




Image from S2E12 - 08m47s


The house where Alice lives is actually not located here, but more about that in a later post.




Image from S1E1 - 02m47s


These houses next to it are the same though.




Image from S1E1 - 02m53s


Shinobu looks towards the cottages of Arlington Row.




Image from S1E1 - 05m57s


Later in the same episode we see Alice and Karen walking through Arlington Row.




Image from S1E1 - 06m07s


Reverse view.




Image from S1E1 - 10m28s


Shinobu and Alice walking together outside Bibury Trout Farm.




Image from S1E1 - 10m32s


And then they go to the ice cream stall inside the trout farm.




Image from S1E1 - 10m34s


This is the pedestrian bridge leading to Arlington Row from the main road that goes through Bibury.




Image from S1E1 - 10m37s


Bibury Court where Karen is living in the show.




Image from S1E4 - 09m01s


The same building from another episode. This used to be a hotel, but it's now been sold off and used as a private residence, so you can't go in and get pictures any more.




Image from S1E1 - 13m58s


Shinobu leaving the homestay shouting hello.




Image from S1E1 - 14m08s


And Alice shouting konnichiwa back.




Image from S1E2 - 21m33s


This red telephone box in Bibury can be seen in the first ED.




Image from S1E12 - 22m51s


Bibury post office.




Image from S1E12 - 22m44s


The post office sign got an even simpler design in real life.




Image from S2E7 - 17m22s


In episode 7 of the second season (Hello!! Kin-iro Mosaic), Alice goes looking for Karen. I've marked a path, which goes past most locations except Bibury Court, from this place to the red telephone box from the ED in the map below.




Image from S2E7 - 17m27s


And she passes through various places in Bibury. The trout farm sign was missing when I was here.




Image from S2E7 - 17m27s


This fence in front of the bridge is similar.




I couldn't get everything from the anime shot above in the same photo, so here's the rest of it.




Image from S2E7 - 17m33s


Alice spots a cat that got Karen's shoe.




Image from S2E7 - 17m42s


The building on the right is the same.




Image from S2E7 - 17m44s


View of the river behind Alice. After this, when it cuts to Karen, it's in another location that's not in Bibury.




Image from S2E7 - 20m09s


After Alice finds and rescues Karen, it cuts back to Arlington Row though.




Image from S2E7 - 20m10s


The same shot of Arlington Row as the very first one above.
