NAVITIME TRAVEL EDITOR

“HELLO WORLD” is an animated Science Fiction love story, set in Kyoto in 2027, which was released in September 2019, and was a huge hit in Japan.

This movie is the latest film directed by Tomohiko Ito, who worked as an assistant director for “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” and “Summer Wars”, and also worked on the popular anime “Sword Art Online”. The movie is about a shy male high school student living in Kyoto called Naomi Katagaki, who meets his future-self from 10 years in the future and he tries to re-live his younger days in order to find love and correct his life mistakes, with all sorts of complications resulting between the present and the future.

Let’s check out the some of the locations in Kyoto that some of the scenes in “HELLO WORLD” were set in.

    Kisenbashi

    This elegant bridge is said to be one of the bridge models depicted in the main visual published on the official website of “HELLO WORLD”. The bridge stands out due to its vivid vermilion color, and is a popular photo spot where you can capture images of Kyoto's inspiring ancient scenery.

    Kyoto Tower

    As with Kisenbashi, Kyoto Tower is another landmark that has found itself being used as a model for the movie’s main visuals. Inspired by a lighthouse, this white tower is the tallest building in Kyoto and is symbolic of the city. Kyoto Tower is also illustrated on the background of the movie’s flyer, as is the temple Toji.

    Fushimi Inari Taisha

    At the beginning of the story, Naomi Katagaki follows Karasu and appears in a scene set in Fushimi Inari Taisha, where he meets with his future-self (who he calls “teacher”) 10 years later. Fushimi Inari Taisha is the originating shrine of the Inari aspect of the Shinto beliefs, and is famous as one of western Japan's best places to visit during Hatsumode (i.e. Japanese New Year shrine/temple blessing visit). It’s an incredibly busy shrine, which is crowded with many worshippers and tourists throughout the year.

    Kamogawa Delta

    The Kamogawa Delta, is at the confluence of the Kamo and Takano Rivers, in Demachiyanagi, Kyoto, and is a great viewing spot where you can see Mt. Hiei and the Daimonji fire festival. It is drawn on Hello World's teaser visual, and is also used in many Japanese dramas and movie locations, including the anime “K-On!” set in Kyoto.

    Toji

    The model for the impressive five-storied pagoda that was seen disintegrating into particles in movie’s trailer PV (released on July 16, 2019) is said to be the five-storied pagoda Toji (Kyoogokokuji). This temple is related to Kukai (aka Kobo Daishi), and the 55 meter high, five-storied pagoda is Japan’s tallest wooden structure and is one of the symbols of Kyoto Prefecture.

    Asagiri Bridge

    Asagiri Bridge is a 74m long vermilion bridge that connects Uji Shrine and Tachibana Island, and is a popular spot representative of the Uji area. There is a scene shown in the trailer PV released on July 16, 2019 where the two main characters are running hand in hand when lightning strikes a bridge, Asagiri Bridge is apparently the model for that bridge.
