Nakamine also created a helpful itinerary in case you want to make a Your Name seichijunrei (聖地巡礼) or pilgrimage, visiting the places depicted in the hit anime.

I think I’m intrigued not that they recreated real life places (which I think is awesome btw) but that they seemingly put so much detail into redrawing these places and yet in every shot they changed the picture in some way. Take the vending machine for example - they replicated the entire machine except for the red sign on the front. I’m just wondering why they went to such great lengths for something like that yet never did a full replication even on something easy like the red sign..
