* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' is set in and around the port city of Oarai, including one episode where a battle took place in its streets. In a case of TheRedStapler, it has caused a three-fold increase in tourism to the town. Which is exactly [[ThePlan what the town council hoped to happen]].

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' features several real-world locations due to being about international-level figure skating, so naturally it would lead to many instances of this. The first episode alone has a lot of examples, which are listed in [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2016/10/22/feature-anime-vs-real-life-yuri-on-ice this Crunchyroll article]]. Though Yuri's hometown of Hasetsu isn't a real place, it's heavily based on the real Kyushu town of Karatsu.

** Umineko follows this with at least the Mansion (and probably also the garden) which is based upon a mansion in the Kyū Furukawa Gardens.

** The local geography, though, is largely based on Sendai, with Yamaku apparently sitting on the steep hill between the Sendai Zoo, the ruins of Aoba castle, and two campuses (Aobayama and Kawauchi) of Tohoku University.

** ''Manga/SlamDunk'' takes place in Kamakura too: Shohoku High is modeled after a local high school, and the famous railroad crossing near Kamakurakokomae Station appears in the first OP.

** While ''Manga/SlamDunk'' takes place in refers mostly to the "Kanagawa Prefecture" and never openly mentions Kamakura by name, it's pretty clear that the action is set there too: Shohoku High is modeled after a local high school, school from the city itself, and the famous railroad crossing near Kamakurakokomae Station appears in the first OP.

* ''Anime/LoveLive'', with Akihabara and surrounding areas. The main area on Chuo Doori around the station is shown quite a few times. The maid cafe where [[spoiler: Kotori works]] is [[http://www.curemaid.jp/ real]], as is [[https://youtu.be/NXZ_PBlMrPg?t=4m14s Honoka's parents' wagashi shop]]. Apparently their ''manju'' really are as great as Umi says (the bridge in the above video also shows up frequently in the anime). And of course, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanda_Shrine Kanda Myojin]], one of the most important Shinto shrines, where Nozomi works as a {{Miko}}-in-training. The shrine even had collaborations with Love Live, which is [[OlderThanTheyThink actually nothing new for them]] - they had similar things with popular Kabuki actors over a hundred years ago.
** ''Sunshine!'' is also based on a real seaside town.

** ''Anime/PingPong'' is another Enoshima-set show, with the final scene of the series taking place on the beach near the island.



** Though most of ''Anime/{{Escaflowne}}'' takes place in the fantasy world of Gaea, a number of real-life landmarks plus a sweeping scenery shot of the ocean from a mountainside reveals that Hitomi's high school where the story starts is in Kamakura.
