The official Twitter account for the upcoming live-action film adaptations of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, the fourth story arc of Hirohiko Araki’s long-running JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series, is opened today, posting a photo of a Morioh-cho flag from the set in Sitges, Spain. The city located at the Mediterranean coast in Catalonia was chosen as the best place to recreate the manga’s main location, Morioh-cho, a fictional city based on the manga author Araki’s hometown, Sendai-city in Miyagi Prefecture.
“The shooting of the film is now going on steadily in Spain! Morioh-cho is built in the town of Sitges.”
