Town where animated films are produced, the town where cartoons are overflowing
Kichijoji is a birthplace of “anime” subculture and a stomping ground for many of the creators of animated films.
Street scenes from Musashino City often appear in the animated films produced by the production agencies around town. Daily scenery from the town is blended into background of the scenes. Visitors can take fun tours of the sets for many productions and shoot locations for "That Work" and "That Scene."
