In real life it is located in the Shiba Park of Minato Ward in Tokyo. In the Manga and Anime of Detective Conan, it's firmly established to be close to or even part of the fictional ward/city of Beika. Conan Edogawa's and Kaitou Kid's first meeting on the roof of the Haido City Hotel is shown to be right next to the real Shiroyama Trust Tower, with Tokyo Tower right behind it, placing the hotel on the location of the ANA Intercontinental Tokyo Hotel in the Akasaka District of Minato.
Later on it's shown that the Mouri Detective Agency is canonically located somewhere inside a radius of less than 1.34 kilometres (~0.83 miles) around the Shorodo right next to the Tokyo Tower. 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.
