Fushimi Inari-Taisha in Kyoto in Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.

Kyoto is a location in Persona 3 and Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.


Kyoto (京都, Kyōto)?, officially Kyoto City (京都市, Kyōto-shi)?, is the capital city of Kyoto Prefecture in Japan. Located in the Kansai region on the island of Honshu, Kyoto forms a part of the Keihanshin metropolitan area along with Osaka and Kobe. As of 2018, the city had a population of 1.47 million.

In 794, Kyoto (then known as Heian-kyō) was chosen as the new seat of Japan's imperial court. The Emperors of Japan ruled from Kyoto in the following eleven centuries until 1869, when the court relocated to Tokyo.

In 1863, a special police force referred to as the Shinsengumi, was founded.

Kyoto is considered the cultural capital of Japan and a major tourist destination. It is home to numerous Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces and gardens.



Persona 3Edit

Over the course of four days, the students of Gekkoukan High School travel to Kyoto as part of their school excursion. Parts of their tour included visiting historical sites aboard a tour bus, and a walking tour of Kyoto. They likely stay at the Higashiyama-ku ward, in Godaigo Inn, which is likely a fictional building.

During their tour, they likely visit Kinkaku-ji, a Zen Buddhist temple. It is one of the most popular buildings in Japan, attracting many visitors annually.

Yukari and Mitsuru visit the Kamogawa River near Sanjō Bridge.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom StrikersEdit

Kyoto is one of the locations the Phantom Thieves travel to during their summer vacation. The group encounters the new Kyoto's Jail in Fushimi Inari-taisha, the head shrine of the Inari Shrines in the Fushimi-ku ward and the Higashi Otani Cemetery in the Higashiyama-ku ward. They also visit the same Godaigo Inn as S.E.E.S.

Zenkichi Hasegawa and his daughter, Akane Hasegawa live in Kyoto.
