Tokyo is Naoko Takeuchi's hometown and where the Sailor Moon series is mainly set. It is known for the districts of Akihabara (electronics and anime), the Emperor's Palace, Harajuku (fashion),Tokyo Tower, a high living cost and its large population density. Originally called Edo, it was made the capital of Japan by the youthful moderniser Emperor Meiji. It hosted the Summer Olympics in 1964 and will do so again in 2020. The shrines shown in the Sailor Moon anime, manga and live action are each based on different shrines in the Azabu-Juban area; the anime shrine is based on the Akasaka shrine while parts of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon were filmed at the shrine in Shirokane.


Azabu-Juuban (麻布十番) is a neighborhood in the Azabu district of Minato-ku, Tokyo. In the anime it was Usagi's home as well as home for many of her friends. Most of the Sailor Moon storyline took place in Azabu-Juuban.

Naoko Takeuchi has spent a lot of time in the area around Azabu-Juuban and integrated those experiences into her story.


  • Azabu-Juuban fully means "linen cloth No.10". Because of Azabu meaning "linen cloth" and Juuban meaning "tenth" or "No. 10".
  • In the English dub and English version of the manga, the area was called "Crossroads" due to the crosslike 2nd last character of its kana.
