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.

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.
