Tokyo locations used in J-Doramas

Post by theskillster » Dec 11th, '06, 00:01

Hello folks,
After you have seen a series of any J-Dorama you get used to the scenery and the locations and sometimes wish you could be there and have a look around (since most j-doramas are filmed at set locations).
I was wondering if people could identify streets/locations in tokyo that are seen in J-Dorama series?

Maybe even point them out on a map? http://maps.google.com/

Thanks,

Odaiba, near Rainbow Bridge and Fuji TV station. The little waterway there. That's one example!

any chance you could mark that on the map, do you have a screenshot?
EDIT:

Anyone know of any online "english" map of tokyo (the google one is in kanji)?

there was a thread like this before and i've (and others) given out this web site

http://loca.ash.jp/

it gives exact locations from current dramas, depending on your Japanese and googling skills you could probably take it from there and actually map it out.
