Shenmue The Animation vs Real Life: Yokosuka High School

In the game version of Shenmue, the school that Ryo and his friends attend, Yokosuka High, is mentioned (on occasion referred to by the abbreviation of "'Suka High"), but never shown on screen.

The anime, on the other hand, takes advantage of its flexible format to show the front of the school building and yard, in Episode One. It is modeled on the actual Yokosuka High School that lies a few kilometers south of Dobuita Street, and as the comparison below shows, the anime version is the spitting image of its real-life counterpart.

Not just the three-level school building but many of the shaped trees and bushes have been faithfully recreated - even the branches of the overhanging cherry tree, although being in winter it is not yet in bloom.
