Not so long ago we went with Kanapeco to do some walking and sketching in Yokohama and as those things go we started to wonder where all the places in "From Up On Poppy Hill" are based on.
The biggest mystery was the tram that plays an important role in the movie but not a trace of it can be found now. I did an image search few days ago to check how it looked like and where it ran and the idea for this illustration was born.
I used the dog/detective character from the previous "It's cold in Yokohama" illustration so this starts to turn into a series of a sort.
This time I used a red col-erase pencil to draw the sketch really lightly and painted the whole ting with acrylic gouache.
