fuck summer i want it to be dark and misty and frigid and october
Iwatobi/the setting of Free! is based on a real place; Iwami, Japan, in Tottori prefecture on the island of Chuugoku! Some of the scenes from the anime are drawn almost brick for brick to their matching locations. They even have special merchandise for sale to promote their town and it’s association with the anime.
All anime aside, this place looks absolutely gorgeous! I’d love to visit here next time I’m in Japan (March hopefully)!!
You can check out more pictures of the town on their Facebook page, blog, and on their official website!
This makes me so happy
