Whisper of the Heart is actually set in a real place! - Tama New Town, Tokyo. 耳をすませばのモデルになった住宅地:多摩ニュータウン

I've had a long calling to actually visit the place that directly or indirectly inspired many locations in the film. It currently is my favourite film of all time.

It was a very surreal and peaceful experience location scouting the whole area. I had a huge smile on my face walking in Shizuku's footsteps while listening to the films fantastic soundtrack by Yuji Nomi. While the film locations stay awesomely true to the real life counterparts, some are not geographically in the same places as the film and others I showed were (what I believe) inspiration. The film Pom Poko (平成狸合戦ぽんぽこ) is also set in this town!

中学生月島雫と天沢聖司の恋愛物語で、 聖蹟桜ヶ丘 周辺が主な舞台となっているが、一部で愛宕・東寺方団地が登場する。
