If you have played Kud Wafter, you might remember this scene which appears in the opening video. This place is located right outside Koushienguchi Station in Nishinomiya, so I dropped by there when I was headed to Nishinomiya in search of places that appeared in Suzumiya Haruhi series. I haven’t played Kud Wafter yet, but Kudryavka is my favorite character in Little Busters!. Well, I like Rin and Kurugaya a lot, too, but Kudo is Kudo. Anyway, if you’d like to visit this spot, get on the Toukaidou Line (Kyoto Line, Kobe Line – Toukaidou line has different names in different areas) and get off at Koushienguchi Station. If you travel from Osaka or Kyoto, get on Nishi-Akashi-bound, Kobe-bound, or any other west-bound train. If you get on a rapid service, it’s very likely it won’t stop at Koushienguchi Station. Leave the station via the south exit and the Kud Wafter spot will be at about 1 o’clock (in front of you, slightly to the right).
