Jujutsu Kaisen sets a world where human’s negative feelings such as hardship, regret, and shame become curses that hide in our everyday life. Those curses are uncontrollable throughout the world which lead people to terrible fortune and even death. Moreover, the curses can only be expelled by another curse.
The anime focuses on Yuji Itadori who has tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely normal high school life. One day, he eats the finger of Sukuna, who is the king of curses, in order to save a friend who is attacked by cursed spirits.
Thus, he shares one body with Sukuna which begins the heroic tale of a boy who became cursed to fight curses. Following this, a group of Jujutsu sorceresses–people who have capability to control their cursed energy to fight evil spirits–enroll Yuji in the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to help him control his power and also keep an eye on him. They are guided by the most powerful of Jujutsu sorceresses, Satoru Gojo.

Our first spot to experience Jujutsu Kaisen in real life is Harajuku Station. It was featured in the anime with Megumi and Yuji standing outside of it having some conversation and also waiting for Gojo’s to join them later. This location was featured in Episode Three.
It is easy to access Harajuku Station from main stations like Shibuya and Shinjuku by the Yamanote Train Line. There are many shopping stores around Harajuku Station such as IKEA and Uniqlo. This station has a long history and it was recently rebuilt because of the Olympics 2022 which appears in the anime.
Takeshita Street is a famous street in Harajuku which is just a minute walk from Harajuku station. It is featured right after the Harajuku station scene during Episode Three with Nobara walking down the street and characters gathering together in a coin locker place. Takeshita is a popular tourist spot for people to visit! It has many street fashion shops and street food stalls which really attracts younger people.
Another great real-life location is Roppongi Hills. It is featured in the opening of the anime where Nobara stands with Tokyo Tower in the background. It is a great spot for people who want to experience the magical moment for themselves at a pristine location.
Roppongi Hills can be easily accessed from Roppongi station on the Hibiya and Toei Oedo Subway Lines. It has a great view of Tokyo Tower. There are office, shopping stores, restaurants, and various art exhibitions here as well.
Sendagaya Tunnel is another location that appears in the opening of the anime which is located in Shibuya. Viewers can seethe tunnel in the scene where Megumi seems kneeling down investigating something on the floor.
This tunnel has a rumor of being a haunted tunnel because it was actually built under the temple graveyard of a Buddhist temple. Some people claim to encountered ghosts and other supernatural phenomena in this tunnel. This may also explain why Megumi is investigation this location.
Otaguro Park is featured in a scene with the character Maki Zenin. In this scene, she stands in a beautiful park, however, when she puts on her glasses, she sees that there are cursed spirits in the pond.
Not only is this park is free to enter, but it also has traditional Japanese garden which is perfect for nature-lovers. It is beautiful in every season, particularly in autumn when when the leaves change color. It is a 10-minute walk from Ogikubo Station. Remember to bring your glasses to check for cursed spirits are in the pond!!!
