Real existing places of Death Note

Death Note is a manga (2003) and a anime (2006), a masterpiece that has had a worldwide hit and is absolutely one of favorites.

Not all areas represented in the series are recognizable, however, the series takes place almost exclusively in the city of Tokyo.

Kasumigaseki
Shibuya
Shinjuku
University of Tokyo

Kasumigaseki

The district of Kasumigaseki is a neighborhood of Tokyo which houses a lot of edifici governativi e istituzionali, including the national headquarters of the police. Precisely this building and the surrounding area can be seen in the episodes number 6 and 7 of the anime, when Light meets the girlfriend of Roy Penbar (the FBI agent).

In the first moments of the first ever episode of the anime, you can see Light walking through one of the most popular areas in Tokyo, the neighborhood of Shibuya.
We can recognize, as you can see in the pictures below, the Shibuya station, the crosswalk and the big screen of a famous store of the area (Shibuya 109).

University of Tokyo

In the episode number 9, we can clearly recognize the university attended by Light, or rather the one that he is going to attend, because in that episode he goes to do just the admission test.
We are talking about the very prestigious University of Tokyo, whose main buildings are located in the area of Hongo in Bunkyo.

Guided tours, activities and other things to do

If you are planning a trip to Japan and you want to add something special besides the visit of the different monuments and famous places, we suggest you to use the site Govoyagin. This is a very useful site to enrich your travel experience, especially if you are going solo or it's your first time in Japan and, for language barriers and more, and you will not have many opportunities to interact with the locals and to enjoy something different from the famous places marked in the tourist guides.

What Govoyagin is

Govoyagin is a website where you can find many particular activities all over Japan (and not only in Japan).
You can buy tickets online for some famous attractions, but also book tours and really special experiences with locals ready to guide you and take you to places outside the tourist circuits that you would hardly ever find by yourself. Last but not least, you can reserve a table in hundreds of restaurants.

Some examples

On Govoyagin you can buy tickets in advance to visit the Tokyo Tower or the Tokyo Sky Tree, but also book guided tours of Kyoto temples accompanied by a samurai, or to go around the streets of Osaka on a go-kart dressed as Super Mario, or even play videogames against an unbeatable Japanese otaku at his place.
Last but not least, if you need to reserve your table in some restaurants, such as the legendary 3-star Michelin, also in this case you can find this kind of service for sale on Govoyagin. Take a look at Govoyagin
