Next stop on my Lucky Star pilgrimage is Kasukabe where Kyoei/Kyouei High School, the real-life high school that Lucky Star’s Ryōō High School is based on, is located!
Saying that it was a surreal experience being at the school would be an understatement. I really wonder how the school would be like during regular school days. Since it was the New Year, everyone was off on their holidays. I guess that this was all for the best. Didn’t want any awkward stares. However, according to numerous sources, the town should be pretty used to that by now. (^.^;)

In this installment of Actar’s Road Trips, follow me on my Lucky Star pilgrimage as I travel to Saitama, home of Lucky Star! To usher in the New Year, our first stop is none other than the shrine where Hiiragi sisters work at as Mikos, Washinomiya Shrine!
