Outside Amagasaki Cultural Center. This is close to Hanshin Amagasaki Station, not to be confused with JR Amagasaki Station.

Tilting shot. Hanshin Amagasaki Station is also where I visited the shopping street seen in Haruhi Suzumiya.

Haruhi Suzumiya - Shopping Street South

In addition to the eastern parts of Amagasaki Chuo - Sanwa - Deyashiki shopping street, some shops in the southern parts are also shown in Haruhi Suzumiya.

This place called Morimura Produce in the show is shown in the first season. It seems to be called Konishi Produce in real life.

This is Sanwa Electronics store which is called Ohmori Electronics in the anime.

Kyon picks up a heater here for the club room.

The electronics store is also shown in the second season.

The satellite dish on the left isn't shown in the anime shot, the statue is further to the right in real life and it's a Panasonic sign instead of a Lighting House sign.

Haruhi gets Kyon to hold her bag.

And runs in the store. The bottom of the satellite dish seems to be shown in the anime shot here.

The shop in the middle here is called Columbia and not Columbus like in the anime.




Image from The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 2 - 14m45s


Kyon gets shocked.




Image from The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 2 - 15m10s


By the costume change Haruhi has made.




Image from The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 2 - 15m17s


A lot more onlookers show up.

I also looked for this store called Kumai Meat Shop in the show, but didn't find anything matching exactly. I got a picture of this meat shop though.




Image from The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 1 - 22m22s


This meat shop has signs in the same colors as a shop shown in the anime as well. I've marked a path from the produce shop, going past the electronics store and ending up here in the map below.
