Beika (Town)

From Detective Conan Wiki
(Redirected from Beika Town)
A map of Beika Town supplied in OVA 7 by Agasa.

Beika Town (米花町 Beika-chō?) is where Conan Edogawa and a majority of the other main characters live. It's a district in the Beika Ward of Tokyo (a part of Beika City in the extended canon) and consists of at least seven blocks. Like the Beika Ward itself, it is named after London's Baker Street, which is the place Sherlock Holmes lived at.

Location[edit]

Tokyo Tower is less than 1.34 km (0.83 mi) away from the Mouri Detective Agency and hence from Beika Town by extension.

Although this town is fictional, some buildings and places in it are based on existing structures, which are mixed with fictional locations, and canon statements about its relative position are repeatedly made in the Manga.[1]

Beika seems to be around 4 kilometres (~2.5 miles) to the south-east of Shinjuku.[2] Conan Edogawa and the Detective Boys also took a ride starting from a bus stop at Beika Park on the real To06 bus line (都06) by Toei Bus to Tokyo Tower, which leads from Shibuya Station in the Shibuya Ward through the ward of Minato, with its final destination at Shimbashi Station.[3] They also took a detour on the way to Professor Hiroshi Agasa's house to the real Ebisu Bridge on the border between Shibuya and Minato, implying it to be close to Beika Town.[4]

It's shown that the Mouri Detective Agency is located somewhere inside a radius of less than 1.34 kilometres (~0.83 miles) around the Shorodo right next to the Tokyo Tower, with Buroku and Sutan inbetween.[5] This would, in real life, partly encompass the districts of Mita, the Shiba area, Kaigan, Atago, the Shinbashi area, Toranomon, Akasaka, Roppongi and the area of Azabu, which are all in Minato.

Beika Station is on the Shounan-Shinjuku Line, right after a real section of the tracks before Gotanda Station, close to the borders of Minato, Shibuya and Shinagawa.[6]

This would overlap Beika Town with large parts of the northern Minato Ward, mainly the area surrounding Tokyo Tower and parts close to Shibuya to the west of it.
