Love Live! Nijigasaki & Superstar!!, BELLE, Super Cub Newly Join Japan's 88-Site Anime Pilgrimage 2022 Edition



The Anime Tourism Association announced the selection of the anime spots for the Japan Anime Tourism 88-Stop Pilgrimage's 2022 edition at a presentation held at Belle Salle Kudan in Tokyo on December 15.


The organization was established in September 2016 to select and formalize the "Anime Pilgrimage Sites," the real locations in Japan featured in Japanese anime, based on the online poll by Japanese and foreign anime fans. Last year, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition was listed as the 2021 edition as it was, but this year, from the end of June to November 30, web voting and real voting with ballot boxes set up in selected anime pilgrimage sites were conducted. Then, the 2022 edition was selected after discussions with the rights holders and local governments based on the results of these votes.


A total of 142 sites were selected this time, including 116 sites appearing in 88 anime works and 26 facilities where anime-related events were held. 21 sites were newly added in the 2022 edition.



Newly added sites/facilities added in the 2022 edition:
