Hita, which is located on Oita prefecture is home to a gigantic wall-like structure known as the Oyama Dam. This imposing landmark will be the venue for the cosplay event and it is very fitting as well since the dam walls would make a fine setting that would be almost be like the anime’s.

The location is very ideal not just because of the presence of the dam but also because of the location’s natural environment. The dam walls as well as the trees surrounding the Oyama Reservoir truly scream Attack on Titan.
