Another really popular spot to this day is the main location from Whisper of the Heart (耳をすませば), which is located in western Tokyo, Seiseki-Sakuragaoka (聖蹟桜ヶ丘). The nice thing about this location is that it is really easy for tourists to go and enjoy. There’s a proper guide map to the area, the station still has fun designs from the film, and the shrine that is in the movie gives out fortunes with the characters faces on them.

I teach a class once a week there, and I am surprised how many people to this day still go to this station specifically to visit this anime location.
