Hey, Hyouka fans, something pretty cool has popped up! The official website for Hida-Takayama, Gifu, Japan recently revealed a tour guide map that they collaborated on with the Hyouka anime series!
Check them out:
The map, which is also available on the website for download, shows the user many locations that were shown in the Hyouka anime, including the high school Oreki, Eru, and the others attend. Not only is the map digital, but 10,000 physical copies have been published for distribution!
Hida-Takayama is the setting of Hyouka's story, and the town has been collaborating with Hyouka since last year to create a bunch of awesome Hyouka-themed goods! These are being sold at various stores around the Hida-Takayama area, and have increased tourism to the city from people on otaku “pilgrimages” due to Hyouka.
Pretty cool, right?
