I think that all we know about the town is that it's located somewhere where they need to pass by Mt. Fuji in order to travel to Kyoto, so somewhere in the northwestern half of the country..

I don't know if you could really say Azusa is playing lead on Fuwa Fuwa. She plays higher notes, yeah, but they mostly act as harmony (and Yui has the solo). But Azusa playing lead isn't unprecedented--she played it on Fude Pen, Buru Pen, after all. I'm also pretty sure she has lead on Pure Pure Heart (but it might be the same situation as on Fuwa Fuwa...I haven't seen the official score yet).

yep its

Toyosato, Shiga
my old post



The Location of K-on!!




Closer look
Spoiler for Driving around town:


Spoiler for More exploring :


Spoiler for Train Station:

Toyosato has only one train station, Toyosato Station on the Ohmi Railways Line.

The Toyosato Elemetry school is there High School

seriously that is a LONG freaken walk to school because they have to pass the Toyosato train station to get there school, and look how far that is
go here and copy and paste this (Toyosato Town, Shiga Prefecture, Japan)
--> http://maps.google.com/maps?f=s&utm_...a&utm_term=map



more info

Cool little thing i fond! Since Yui's Parents Work for a trading Company here is a fun fact!
Toyosato also is the birthplace of Itoh Chube'e, the founder of ITOCHU Corporation, one of Japan's largest trading companies. His house is open to the public.
Omi shonin merchant and founder of Itochu Corporation (C. Itoh) and Marubeni, two of Japan's largest trading companies, in 1858. At age 15, he started out peddling his linen goods on foot from Shiga, traveling west to Wakayama and Osaka. He soon set up shop in Osaka. He even had a shop in San Francisco, California. His second son Seiichi, also born in Toyosato, set up the C. Itoh company in 1918 and started importing textiles from England where he had studied abroad.

Toyonichi Junior High School is next to the train station thats probably where Yui went to middle school




--------------------------------------------------



Spoiler for Statue:


William Merrell Vories (they guy who built the school) (October 28, 1880 - May 7, 1964) or Hitotsuyanagi Mereru (一柳米来留,ひとつやなぎ めれる) was an educator, architect, missionary and entrepreneur born in the United States who worked mainly in Shiga prefecture in Japan.

Spoiler for Biography:


--------------------------------------------------

Senjuji temple
Is probably the Shrine they go to During New Years Since it is the Closest Temple in there town
One of the places purported to be where the Goshu Ondo 江州音頭, Shiga's bon dance originated.



--------------------------------------------------



They live in the Shiga Prefecture, Kinki region, Honshu island, JAPAN


Kinki region of Japan in light pink. ( in the song " Gohan wa Okazu" they Say they dont live in Kensai which is RIGHT next to Kinki, Kensai is in Dark Pink)

If you're from Kensai, Its all about Okonomyaki and Rice! But im not from Kansai, What the heck!

wtf!?! but the bid was resetted anyways. the final bid was 3M yen. but just thinking about that, uh?? but it's really valuable, considering it's a signed guitar, so no doubt that it will have a really high value. (but i didn't guess that it will be that freakin high, like 9 trillion yen?!?)

oh yeah, about the news, pretty much expected. i hope next year won't be any different, though.

That's not Kakifly, that's the maker of Umi Monogatari. Toyosaki worked with him in the anime version, after she worked on K-On.

Hmm... I knew that I've seen the post that said that it wasn't Kakifly's photo. (IIRC, it was in the K-ON! manga thread).

but then how to explain this image found here?


Not that I'm sure that he's really Kakifly. But I just find it weird to have his face attached there if he's not K-ON! related.
