The show is set in Japan and includes iconic locations, including: Takeshita Street – a central hotspot for fashion and style and a go-to destination for teens. The main road is filled with delicious eateries to grab a bite and trendy shops with something for everyone. Takeshita Street is so popular that it often draws enormous crowds and is known as a symbol of Harajuku.

Many scenes in the anime take place on this street. Fans noticed that one of the scenes in Episode 3 happens across from Harajuku Station, on Takeshita Street. In fact, you can even see the name of the street in the show! The shops and the signs drawn in the anime are nearly exact to how they appear in real life.

Harajuku is also the origin of “kawaii” culture and popular trends. Many who have gone recommend trying the cafés filled with sweet desserts or clothing stores perfect for a new and vibrant look.

Sendagaya Tunnel in Shibuya

In the first opening of Jujutsu Kaisen, viewers can see Megumi kneel down on the ground in a tunnel modeled after Sendagaya Tunnel in Japan. This tunnel has a rich history and rumors of it being haunted. Since it’s under a cemetery and many have shared ghost stories related to the location, you just might see a spirit if you go through! Many visitors talk about the ghost of a long haired, bloodstained woman. Meanwhile, others report feeling scared just by passing through the tunnel.

The manga and anime reference many regions, including: Okinawa, Sendai, and Kawasaki. Although Sendai is the first setting for the series and also where Yuji Itadori is from, Kawasaki is the primary setting for another arc in the show.

The Miyagi Prefecture’s capital city and cultural hub of activity, Sendai has about a million residents and is known for festivals, crafts, and food. Kawasaki is in an industrial area boasting several temples, parks, museums, and more. One attraction that brought many travelers to this area was an amusement arcade called: Kawasaki Warehouse, which was designed to replicate Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, the establishment is now shut down.

Bonus Manga Location: Inokashira Park in Kichijoji
