Real existing places of Maison Ikkoku in Yokohama, Ikaho, Tokyo

Maison Ikkoku is a manga and anime firstly published in 1980 by Rumiko Takahashi, one of the most beautiful and exciting I've ever watched/read.
The "house" where the main characters live and many other places and streets frequently drawn both in the anime and manga are set in Higashikurume, a suburban neighborhood northwest of Tokyo where apparently the author lived at that time, but there are single episodes set in other places.

Places of Maison Ikkoku in Yokohama

In the chapters 133 and 134 of the manga and in the episodes 83 and 84 of the anime, Mitaka and Kyoko go out together in the evening, and go to Yokohama, althought the name of the city isn't mentioned.
It is easy to understand that the panoramic restaurant where they go is located in front of the Yamashita koen (Yamashita park), a very famous park in the waterfront of the city, where then they go after dinner to have a walk.

Also Godai and Kyoko's father go to this park in the same episode/chaptern, looking for Kyoko, sitting down next to a fountain that really exists.

This park is in the real world one of the most famous of Yokohama both among the Japanese and tourists, a surely interesting place for everyone regardless of this appearance in Maison Ikkoku.

This location is a famous town in Gunma prefecture, famous among the Japanese because of its thermal springs and ryokan, its name is Ikaho Onsen, about 2 hours far by train from Tokyo.

Places of Maison Ikkoku in Tokyo, the Imperial Hotel

This luxury hotel is located in the district of Kasumigaseki, close to Ginza and Tokyo Station.
The current building is very similar to that shown in the anime and manga, where the engagement between Mitaka and Asuna takes place.

Guided tours, activities and other things to do

If you are planning a trip to Japan and you want to do something more than just visiting famous places and monuments, we suggest you to use Govoyagin.

How to use Govoyagin

Govoyagin is a very useful website to enrich your travel experience, especially if you are going solo or it's your first time in Japan.
Because of the language barrier (and more), in Japan it is very difficult to interact with the locals and to get off the tourist track.
Thanks to Govoyagin you can find a lot of interesting and sometimes unique guided tours and activities all over Japan (and not only in Japan), that you would otherwise never be able to enjoy.
But there's more: on Govoyagin you can also buy tickets for several famous attractions, events, transportation and other useful services for tourists. Last but not least, you can reserve a table in hundreds of restaurants.

Some examples
