6:00
Entering the Chūō Expressway. This tollgate is probably the one at the Kunitachi-Fuchū Interchange (国立府中IC). Kazetachi (風立), where Hime-chan lives, is a fictional town based on Kunitachi (国立), a real city in the suburbs of Tokyo.
6:33
Driving west toward outside of Tokyo. This place is still in Tokyo. Probably the bridge over Tama River (Tama-gawa 多摩川).
7:54
Now around Sagamiko (相模湖), a small town in the mountains by the border of Tokyo and Kanagawa. This place is already in Kanagawa.
7:55
In Kanagawa, near Sagamiko. Lake Sagami is in the town of Sagamiko, and there are a lot of rivers and bridges around it.
8:00
Exiting from the Chūō Expressway. There are only two exits around this place; this must be either the Sagamiko Higashi Interchange (相模湖東IC) or the Sagamiko Interchange (相模湖IC).
