The school, cafe, town you saw in anime becomes real-life things!

Let’s go on a tour to visit the real-life places of the huge succeeded anime all over the world, ”The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”.
You will visit Nishinomiya and Koyoen, which are the places where the author grew up. Since it is his hometown, there are a lot of spots you want to visit that are described in the anime.
You will first visit the station where the SOS Brigade used to hook up. The cafe of which they were regulars is busy with Haruhi fans so you might find a mate to have a chat over the anime.
