Lord, that is insanely detailed. They’re missing the tree by the Yamanote Line entrance, but pretty much everything else looks right. It looks like they even got the old “Pathways to Culture and History” mapboard in there.

Seems to be missing the memorial to Hachiko the dog. I’m sure they would have featured this… perhaps an honor thing.


I loved watching the dvd extras on Lost In Translation where they showed them filming in the crossings on the down low, just weaving their way through actual crowds without any sticks or lockdown.
