Last year, during my first trip to Japan, I went to Enoshima and took some photos of the real life locations of Bunny Girl Senpai. It was a great experience for me which makes me wanting to do it again. So this year I went back to Japan and spend a day in the Uji area to visit the real life locations of Sound! Euphonium.

Warning sign on the road to Daikichiyama Observation Deck. It says Please do not climb Daikichiyama Mountain at night as it is dangerous. From this point on, there is absolutely no street light on the road, and the illumination from the city will be completely blocked by the trees so it will be pitch black.

The KyoAni 1st Studio near Rokujizo Station. Both KyoAni and the local council have asked fans stopping visiting the site since it is located in a quiet residential area. We took this picture afar from the parking lot behind the building.
