This week’s chapter is the middle third of anime episode 7 - it doesn’t last all the way to the end of the episode, even though they’ve added a montage showing Nadeshiko actually planning the trip. It’s a nice addition, though.
I actually got a headstart on this chapter. I picked up a copy of Manga Time Kirara Forward for reading practice during my trip in… 2018, probably, and this chapter happened to be in it.
As is probably fairly apparent, Nadeshiko starts at Nishi-Fujinomiya Station.
Rin starts at Akasawa. You can get here by bus from Minobu Station - the whole place looks extremely pretty, and it’s going right on my list of places to visit. Having trouble working out precisely where she’s standing at the top of page 34, but at the bottom, she’s somewhere around here. Then she retires to the Shimizu-ya Cafe. They do actually sell mamemochi, though I’m not sure how much it costs - website doesn’t say. 白鳳みそ is an actual specialty of Hayakawa.
Meanwhile, Nadeshiko heads for the actual Fujinomiya Shrine, though it’s not called Fujinomiya but Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha (I can see Fuji-san!). Fairly sure the store where she sees people eating yakisoba on page 42 is Fujinomia Yakisoba Antenna Shop, but either way, that’s definitely the road she’s walking down.
Rin’s next stop is the Great Cedar of Yushima - I think I’ll leave pinpointing the various panels of pages 43-45 as an exercise for the reader (there’s only one road connecting the two locations).
Nadeshiko stops for lunch at Okonomiyakishokudo Ito - it’s a pretty fair walk from where she was before. Rin passes Narada Lake, before parking at Sotoryo Temple (and oh boy, this looks like another lovely place to visit).
Will Nadeshiko even get lunch? What exactly is shigure-yaki? What’s Rin doing at Sotoryo Temple? Find out next week!
Page 44, according to the translators notes in the Yen Press translation (hey! You got something right!) カド街 is a reference to アド街.
Page 46 final panel, I never had the foggiest idea why Rin’s going ん？ here until I watched the anime, because in the anime it’s more obvious that Rin’s looking at the car, and the car is also exactly the same colour as Sakura’s.
赤沢宿＝あかさわしゅく (though it’s given furigana on page 36 anyway, so I probably didn’t need to include it here)
