When Wendy writes that she is going to Japan, she is by the fountain at Washington Square Park in in Greenwich Village, New York [Thanks to Fran]

The majority of Tokyo Pop was shot in and around west Tokyo; Shinjuku, Harajuku, and Shibuya all have prominent features in the film. The station Wendy finds herself lost in (and missing trains in) is Shinjuku Station. She works at a hostess club in Kabuki-chou. Mickey's House was a real gaijin house in the 80's and 90's in Kami-Itabashi. Shinjuku Loft is a real livehouse in Kabuki-chou.

The street parade (everyone dancing) is hotoken, or the "pedestrian paradise" in Harajuku Sundays. It has since been closed off, but there are still costume players at Harajuku station every Sunday. FRUiTS magazine contains more details about the location. [Thanks to Em]
