    No luck finding that house but I am still looking.

    It also seems that they want to limit the number of locations, possibly due to costs, and seem to concentrate on only a few areas, South Bank in London and Notting Hill / Bayswater / North Kensington area. If the scene is very short and not critical, even more reason not to film in a one-off far away location.

    I've found about 25 locations of other scenes. One was an alley with no really good clues except the person walked out of the alley and I was able to locate the probable area, Soho, which turned out to be correct (and the alley located). Example of nearly an alley location I found (Meard St., London). Main character walks out of the door on the right.

    Hints: It is almost certainly in London. Likely, it is in Notting Hill or Holland Park. Much of the filming was also in the South Bank but that area does not have this type of architecture. I am not completely sure, but I think this is Regency architecture but could be Georgian architectural style.

    Notice that it's a detached house, which is unusual in London. The left is not touching another building but the right side might be. If one uses Google Maps at a detailed enough scale, one can see the outlines of houses and can see which ones are detached.

    The TV show also showed the interior and the back had a small rectangular swimming pool. However, often the film industry uses different buildings for the exterior and interior so the swimming pool might be a false clue.

    Note that in London, many townhouses have black iron railings in front but this one does not. Note that the front door steps have a white handrail that connects with the house.

    Also note the Chrysler 300 in the photo but that is British spec with amber rear turn signals and British number plates (license plates) if it is the same Chrysler that appeared in another episode.
    Still looking. I found a house at 14 Pembridge Crescent, Notting Hill, London that is very similar. The entrance is slightly different as are the windows are not sash windows but one single paine of glass but it looks similar. That may mean the same architect built something similar nearby.

    This is a wooden suspension type bridge in a park or nature reserve over a creek. It is in Japan, likely in or near Yokohama, Japan. I just watched a Japanese TV show for the first time. This bridge is in several scenes. Any help in finding it?

    This appears to be a low budget TV show with nearly all of the rest of the scenes filmed in Kanazawa Ward in the southern part of Yokohama, with the exception of a restaurant scene at a Tokyo restaurant. The bridge is probably in Kanazawa Ward or close by. Can you find it?

    I am happy to report that I found the bridge! Does anyone want to search? Hint: Google "wooden bridge Yokohama" does not seem to bring the answer up. Hint: It is very close to Yokohama and west of the city.
