Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou

Hideaki Anno's New Work is"Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" which is broadcast by TV-Tokyo since October 1998.

On 10/02/1998, TV-Tokyo started Hideaki Anno's New Anime "Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" at last. A lot of anime fans in Japan have been looking forward to seeing it for a long time. These two years Hideaki Anno made real performance films rather than anime.
This work is his new age anime which is different from his former works.

. 13. Masashi Kosugi Station

When Sailor Moon was popular, foreign anime fans asked me to guide "Azabu-Juban" of Tokyo. As you know, Azabu-Juban is famous for Sailor Moon's living place.
In 1992, Sailor Moon started. Then Azabu-Juban was not so famous. As Sailor Moon got very popular, foreigners came there to see several shops.
In fact, there are an antique kaleidoscope shop, a Japanese-style confectionery "Taiyaki" shop called "Naniwa-ya", and a Japanese-style restaurant "Hajime." They became more famous, too. TV-crews often visited and presented the three. At present, Japanese commoners cannot enter those three shops though I had been to them before 1992.

Now, Musashi Kosugi is located at Nakahara-ward of Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Of course it is close to Tokyo.
JR East Nanbu Line is a local line in Kawasaki city. There you can change trains. Tokyu Toyoko Line also has a station there. Sorry, they are not so convenient.

I introduce Musashi Kosugi.

Musashi Kosugi is famous for "Kosugi Goten." Kosugi Goten Palace was built in 1608 by the Tokugawa Shogunate. The Sogunate built it for the Shogun. Its situation was 40,000 square meters. Thereafter it was not utilized. The Tokugawa Shogunate closed the palace in Kanbun Era (1661-1673).
