The Tori Bowl is a multi-story bowling alley that features a rooftop display of a bird and bowling pin.
Open 24-hours, the trio of Mutsumi Otohime, Naru Narusegawa and Keitaro Urashima come across it while looking for Mutsumi's apartment complex and decide to spend their time in the bowling alley while waiting for the next train.
Torii Bowl is based on Parks Bowl, Kanagawa.
The train that Mutsumi noticed leaving near Tori Bowl was based on a rail near the Setagaya ward station in Tokyo.
