The Jujutsu Kaisen Story

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.

Now that you know what the show is about,are you ready to see the real-life spots in Tokyo that the anime based itself on? Let’s check it out right now!!

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.
