The High School that Taki studies was inspired by the Motomachi high school in Hiroshima. For a prefectural school, the design of the building is rather futuristic and offers a good atmosphere. The architect responsible for the plans of this school is called Hiroshi Hara. He was also responsible for the plans for the Kyoto station and for the Umeda Sky Building in Osaka. This symbolic school appears in some animes such as Your Name. Unfortunately this building remains a school and its entry is prohibited to any outside person without authorization. It is located north of Hiroshima Castle, an 8-minute walk from JR Shinhakushima Station, and very close to Astramline Jyohoku Station.
