- A straight line drawn from the real-life location of Taki's rooftop to Lake Suwa - the real-life location of Lake Itomori authentically goes right through the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. However, the angle of the building seen in the opening is different from how it is actually seen in the real life and from another scene in the movie itself. It is likely that the opening scene was deliberately changed for the sake of visual balance.
