Real existing places of Toradora

Toradora is a series that was born initially as a light novel, from which it was made ​​a manga and particularly a famous anime (in 2009).
The neighborhood where the main characters live is unknown, or rather is not precisely defined by the author, in fact the series is definitely set in Tokyo but we can't say more because you can recognize many scenes of the anime that take place in several neighborhoods of the city but far from each other.

Kita Akabane

The area around Kita-akabane station (Tokyo) along the JR Saikyo line is perhaps the most "suspected" as the neighborhood where the protagonists live, since it appears many times during the series.

In episode No.6, during an extracurricular activity during which Kawashima is shadowed by a stalker, some views can be recognized.

Iogi

About 1 km south of Iogi Station along the Seibu Shinjuku line, in the ward of Suginami (Tokyo), there is a cafe-restaurant belonging to a popular japanese chain called Jonathan's.
This place appears at least twice in Toradora as "Johnny's".
