As a big fan of Kyoto Animation (Kyoani) works, I was recently encouraged by a lot of efforts across the community to pay their tribute to the studio, after the tragedy took place about a year ago. Motivated by these efforts to express their support to and solidarity with Kyoto Animation, I wanted to also start something original with my own effort, perhaps in a rather roundabout way, to voice my support to the community, and spread the message to contribute back.
Starting this week, I’m going to be sharing my plans, notes and stories of my past pilgrimage trips to anime holy lands. That being said, most of the trips would have taken places in Japan, with a few notable exceptions. They will all be grouped under the Travel category. As I mentioned above, as an active advocate for Kyoto Animation, most of my trips were indeed centralized on productions of the studio. I’m hoping these planning notes, photos, and in some ways, tutorials can help fellow reader pilgrims visit these places by themselves in the future. I would be awfully glad if they can give you motivations to pay these beautiful IRL stage settings a visit and find any of my notes helpful for planning your trips.
