Bridge of the Soba Line in Akihabara

The green bridge of the Soba Line is almost impossible to miss when visiting Akihabara. It crosses the Chuo-Dori, the main street in the district. The bridge can be seen, among other things, in the opening of the Anime.

Akihabara Station - Electric Town Exit

The Electric Town exit of Akihabara Station is also often a place of action. In the anime, however, the adjacent shops are always closed. Probably to be able to draw them faster.

Akihabara Radio Kaikan 秋葉原ラジオ会館

Much of the action takes place on the upper floors, and on the roof, of Radio Kaikan in Akihabara. In the series a time machine collides with the facade. Unfortunately in Akihabara there is no longer the building that was shown in the series. The original Radio Kaikan building was demolished in 2011 and replaced by a new building, which opened in 2014.

The Troubadour - London Club & Restaurant

Since 1954 The Troubadour has been one of the best addresses for good music in London. Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Sammy Davis Jr., Jimi Hendrix and many other famous artists have played there and still the Troubadour regularly plays live music. So it is not surprising that the girls from K-On also stop by there during their visit to London.
Although The Troubadour is only briefly shown in the film, the people who run it are well aware of this honour. A picture of the K-ON girls is hanging in one of the shop windows.
