Fanatic Anime and Your Lie in April - Towa Hall. ELVONDA

At the end of the first episode of Your Lie in April we see a building called Towa Hall. This building is the Nerima Culture Center which is located just north of Nerima Station in real life.



Image from Episode 1 - 14m31s


At the back of the building is this small park area.




Image from Episode 1 - 14m32s


Kousei waiting in the park.




Image from Episode 1 - 14m38s


No shoes or leggings here in real life of course.




Image from Episode 1 - 14m43s


Reverse angle. None of the houses in the background seems to match.




Image from Episode 1 - 14m53s


This tree isn't a cherry tree in real life.




Image from Episode 1 - 15m06s


There are some cherry trees here though, like these ones.




Image from Episode 1 - 15m11s


Kousei sees Kaori for the first time.




Image from Episode 1 - 15m39s


There's a light pole here and not a children's playground in real life.




Image from Episode 1 - 16m20s


A lot less cherry trees.




Image from Episode 1 - 18m50s


Tsubaki shows up.




Image from Episode 1 - 19m26s


Watari as well.




Image from Episode 1 - 19m43s


For some reason the actual cherry trees here are depicted as other trees in the anime.




Image from Episode 1 - 20m08s


The sitting places in the background aren't as colourful in real life.




Image from Episode 1 - 20m14s


The front of the building.




Image from Episode 1 - 20m17s


Says Nerima Culture Center instead of Towa Hall of course.




Image from Episode 1 - 21m16s


Kaori dragging Kousei along at the end of the first episode.




Image from Episode 2 - 00m25s


Towa Hall at the beginning of the second episode.




Image from Episode 2 - 00m28s


Tsubaki and Watari running towards the entrance.




Image from Episode 2 - 02m07s


I had a quick look inside the building and the clocks were the same as in the show.




They also had this Your Lie in April decorated ice cream vending machine inside.




Image from Episode 2 - 05m55s


Full view of the building from some nearby stairs.




Image from Episode 4 - 03m29s


The building in the background is further away from the stairs in real life.




Image from Episode 4 - 03m31s


The path between the stairs and the building.




Image from Episode 4 - 03m40s


Closer look at the building entrance.




Image from Episode 4 - 03m54s


And finally a reverse shot towards the stairs.

Fanatic Anime and Your Lie in April - Roadside. ELVONDA

In the opening scene of Your Lie in April we see Kaori walking down a street that is close to Oizumi-gakuen Station in real life, so I went and had a look.



Image from Episode 1 - 00m09s


The street from the opening scene.




Image from Episode 1 - 00m18s


This side street doesn't match in real life. I've marked the path from Oizumi-gakuen Station to the building to the left in the map below though.




Image from Episode 15 - 13m44s


On the way here you'll also go past this place shown in a later episode.




Image from Episode 15 - 13m48s


Wider view.




Image from Episode 15 - 13m52s


This shop is called Smile Hair in real life.




Image from Episode 15 - 14m01s


Kousei stops in front of this bakery.




Image from Episode 15 - 17m30s


Where he also goes back later to buy canel�s.




Image from Episode 20 - 15m30s


In episode 20 when Kaori calls Kousei, he stands in front of Oizumi Junior High School.




Image from Episode 20 - 16m10s


This school is right next to the street from the opening scene of the show.




Image from Episode 20 - 16m10s


Matching street signs to the left in this picture.




Image from Episode 22 - 11m08s


The street from the opening scene is also seen in the last episode.




Image from Episode 22 - 11m25s


Slightly closer look.




In Oizumi-gakuen Station I also saw this Your Lie in April themed vending machine.
