This is a rare moment that happens during certain times of the year under the right weather conditions; the sun shines brightly behind the peak of Mount Fuji, making it shine like a diamond.

The other beautiful place within the Shizuoka prefecture seen in season 1 was the Shiraito Waterfall, located in Karuizawa, Japan. One can see a beautiful rainbow across the waterfall if certain weather conditions are met. This was the location chosen by Mikako to click a picture with the assistance of Masaki Nakao, as Julie (AKA Ju!ie) and Robin Furuya acted as subjects.

Kanazawa, Japan

Kanazawa, Japan, is located on the banks of the Sea of Japan. This is where Honoka Nishimura conducted her photo shoot in ‘Is She the Wolf?’ season 1, with Gabby and Taiju Shiratori as her subjects, while Tomoki Yonemura helped her behind the lens. The result was a stunning picture where the two people in the picture were reflected in the seawater, creating a truly magical moment.

Aomori, Japan

In season 1 of ‘Is She the Wolf?’ Sakurako Okubo chose Tomoki Yonemura and Robin Furuya to accompany her to Aomori, Japan. The city is well known for its cherry blossom trees.

Shōdo Island, Japan

It was Shōdo Island, or Shōdoshima, in Japan that Julie (AKA Ju!ie) and Masaki Nakao went to in ‘Is She the Wolf?’ season 1 to have a handholding photoshoot. The island in question is located in Japan’s Seto Inland Sea, providing visitors with a beautiful sea view.

Hokkaido, Japan

Hokkaido, Japan, was chosen by Gabby in season 1 of ‘Is She the Wolf?’ to have her photoshoot. She chose Taiju Shiratori as her companion for the quest, and the two could click a beautiful picture of a lonely tree in an open field in the town of Toyokoro within Hokkaido.
