Totsuka Station Neighborhood
Fuyuki Bridge (Kobe Great Bridge)
Firstly, we Fuyuki Bridge. With no doubt the most iconic of the Fate series’ real-life locations. This bridge is simply mythical because it can boast of having been the place of the battle between Iskandar and Gilgamesh.

This third Fate series’ real-life location is a church in Fuyuki City, Japan. The Holy Church uses the church to station the Overseer for the Fuyuki Holy Grail War and to supervise the city. It is on the top of a hill and a one-hour walk from Miyama Town (Emiya residence). It was constructed before World War II.
There is a 1000 yen entrance fee for entering the church, but the interior is unrelated to the Fate franchise.
