San Fransokyo is the fictional city in which the 2014 Disney animated feature film Big Hero 6 takes place and is the home of the titular heroes. San Fransokyo is an alternate history San Francisco, created after the 1906 earthquake.[2]

Background

Layout

The layout of the city is a high-tech hybrid of artistic and technological architecture and a fusion of both San Francisco and Tokyo architectural styles. Built on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, the city is designed to withstand the risk of earthquakes. The city is also a center for vast cultures besides the dominant Eastern and Western themes. However, behind the bright aesthetic is the underworld of illegal bot-fighting, commonly located in the dark, grungy alleys of the city. A large quantity of the buildings and technology in the city were constructed by Alistair Krei and his company, Krei Tech.

Notable Locations

  • Lucky Cat Café: Located on the corner of a hill street, it is the home of Aunt Cass, Hiro Hamada, Mochi and formerly Tadashi Hamada. An attached garage serves as both a workshop and the primary base for the Big Hero 6 team.
  • San Fransokyo Institute of Technology: An educational institution where Hiro and his best friends have studied.
  • Fred's Mansion: The luxurious home of Fred and the secondary base for the Big Hero 6 team.
  • Akuma Island: A former base for Project Silent Sparrow, now an abandoned island off the coast of San Fransokyo.
  • Krei Tech: Alistar Krei's building for innovations and technological inventions.
  • Yokai's Warehouse: The secluded, ominous lair of the masked villain, Yokai.
  • Trading Post: An area near the bay of San Fransokyo.
  • San Fransokyo Tribune Building
  • San Fransokyo Police Station

Architecture

  • San Fransokyo Bridge: Based on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, the San Fransokyo Bridge is a hybrid-design of the original bridge along with a design of some of Japan's spirit bridges.
  • Hybrid Painted Ladies: Animators added an extra spin to the Painted Lady houses of San Francisco by adding Japanese touches to them, such as the Japanese like roof tops, koinoibori flags, Japanese lanterns, signature cats etc.

Trivia

  • The name and layout of the city is a mix between real-life cities San Francisco and Tokyo.
  • According to Scott Watanabe, San Fransokyo is set in an alternate future where after the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco was rebuilt by Japanese immigrants using techniques that allowed movement and flexibility in a seismic event. After the city was finished being rebuilt, it was renamed San Fransokyo due to it being a city with Japanese and American architecture combined.[2]
  • Some promotional posters have featured the city's newspaper San Fransokyo Times with the date 2150 on it, suggesting that the city and the film is set near the year 2150. This is unlikely though, because there is still modern-day tech, such as normal cars, trains, etc.
