Hita City x Attack on Titan Head to Hita City, where Titans attack

Fans of the hit anime “Attack on Titan'' can make a pilgrimage to Hita City in Oita Prefecture – hometown of the manga’s creator, Hajime Isayama. In addition to visiting the city’s well-preserved old town area of Mamedamachi, check out the bronze statues of the characters from the popular series that have been erected around the town area.

Three statues of the protagonists Eren, Mikasa, and Armin can be found at the foot of the towering Oyama Dam as a reflection of the series’ iconic first chapter, while Captain Levi’s statue can be spotted at the plaza in front of Hita Station. Another attraction is the free-to-enter “Attack on Titan in HITA Museum” which showcases Isayama’s original drawings.

Part of the “Attack on Titan” project is a specially-developed smartphone game – download it to defeat the human-devouring giants using GPS (in Japan only), and receive medals for the number of Titans you defeated. Visitors to Hita City can also spot Titans “appearing” around town with the game’s AR function!
