The Kuroba Residence is a single-family house inhabited by Kaito Kuroba and his mother Chikage Kuroba at times, located in the Toshima Ward of Tokyo, probably in or somewhere close to Ikebukuro. It also contains the base of operations of Kaitou Kid in the form of a secret room behind a painting.[1][2] It's in the catchment area of Ekoda High School, a fictional building somewhere in the Ekoda Area of Tokyo.

Trivia[edit]

  • Similar to the Blue Parrot Pool Bar and the character design of Chikage Kuroba, the design of the house changed significantly between chapter 19 and 30. Gosho Aoyama took over the design of the house that debuted in Episode 1 of the Magic Kaito TV Specials since the latter. In Magic Kaito 1412, the setting designers came up with a completely new design, with its architecture having almost nothing in common with the house from the Manga or the TV Specials. It's also directly neighbouring the Nakamori residence, which doesn't seem to be the case in the two previous incarnations.
  • While firmly being somewhere inside the Toshima Ward of Tokyo in the Manga, the house seems to be in or close to the Minato Ward in the TV Specials and somewhere around the Shinjuku Ward in Magic Kaito 1412.
