Nature Recreates Scene from Anime “Your Name” at Lake Suwa in Nagano

Travel Anime

Tateishi Park in Suwa, Nagano Prefecture, is familiar to fans of Shinkai Makoto’s animated film Kimi no na wa (Your Name). In late August, as the mercury rose to a sweltering 32 degrees Celsius, the sun, clouds, and an airplane contrail aligned over Lake Suwa to create a fleeting scene reminiscent of the hit anime. “It’s like a falling meteor,” one observer snapping smartphone photos exclaimed, referring to a famous moment in the movie.
