"Hyouka" and "your name." Setting Have New Perks for Anime Tourists

Gifu Prefecture opens new exhibits for fans on a pilgrimage


Fans of anime sightseeing are about to get a boost -- especially if they're fans of series set in Gifu Prefecture.


The area, with the backing of the Hida Anime Fan Event Executive Committee, has set up what they're calling the "Pilgrimage Network Maps." Four different types of maps will be available, leading fans to prominent locations featured in your name., Hyouka, A Silent Voice, and others in the area. There will also be reading spots, where fans can settle in and read books and magazines related to the area and the anime.



On March 4, a representative from the Committee will be giving a talk on the area and how to approach a sightseeing trip of this nature.
