* AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder: This is subverted to some degree: while Takaki's mind does indeed go yonder, his heart remains fixated on one constant point: this accounts for Kanae's observation that he is always looking toward something distant, and fails to notice people around him. For most of the movie, he is unable to have the individual who invoked such feelings in him because he was too rigid to move toward anyone -- until the end, at which point he becomes capable of actually taking control of his own life and taking it in the direction that he wants it to go. To this end, his heart has not gone yonder; rather, it becomes a little more malleable and open.

The final shot of the movie depicts the adult Akari and Takaki walking across the train crossing once again, passing by each other. As the two notice each other right after crossing, two trains pass right between them. As the train leaves, Akari disappears, and Takaki looks longingly into the emptiness before finding peace in himself, makes a faint smile, and leaves the crossing, finally letting go of his past.
