Real existing places of Ranma 1/2

Ranma 1/2 is a series of 1987, one of the most famous of Rumiko Takahashi.

The series takes place mainly around a quiet residential neighborhood of Tokyo, where Tendo's house and Furinkan high-school are located.

This quiet residential neighborhood is in the real world the big ward of Nerima, in north-western Tokyo.

Furinkan High-school

According to wikipedia, in the huge ward of Nerima there are 44 middle and high schools (and other 69 elementary schools).
I have been in front of some schools near Oizumigakuen station, but I haven't found any similar or a bit similar to the school attended by Ranma and friends, however it is possible that it exists somewhere else.
If someone is so crazy to "waste" a whole day (or maybe more) of his holidays in Japan going in front of all schools in Nerima, he may even find it!

The area of the river

Ranma, Akane, and many other characters, often walk around an area characterized by a small river, beside which there is an high railing, where often Ranma walks in balance and where he often falls into the water turning into a girl.
The river is called Shirako-gawa (白子川) and this area is located about 1 km west of Oizumigakuen station along the Seibu Ikebukuro line.

Shakuji-Koen Park

According to some japanese websites, this should be the park that inspired the authoress when she had to draw chapters of Ranma 1/2 set in a park.
This park is little know to tourists but is very popular among the inhabitants of the city, it is the second largest park of Tokyo after the famous Ueno park.
This park is also located not far from Oizumigakuen station, but the nearest station is Shakujikoen station, the previous station along the Seibu Ikebukuro line coming from Ikebukuro station.

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
