Many fans of Jujutsu Kaisen explore those existing places in order to become part of the characters and actions in the anime such as doing the same pose or enjoying the same food.

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!!
