Akina map

Mount Haruna (榛名山 Haruna-san) is a dormant stratovolcano in Takasaki, Gunma.

Haruna appears under the name Akina (秋名). Akina pass, as referred to by the characters, is actually Jomo-Sanzan Panorama Highway according to Google Maps. Bunta Fujiwara holds the fastest downhill record at Mt.Akina and was the original best driver before his son. It is here that, Takumi Fujiwara delivers tofu everyday to a hotel uphill, using his Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86). It is also where Takumi won his first few races and the home course for the racing team called the Akina SpeedStars which Takumi eventually became a member of. Due to his great victories, unbeatable track records and his downhill driving technique using an AE86 against much more powerful vehicles, Takumi and the AE86 gain popularity which is referred as 'Akina's 86'. The Akina pass is also famous for its five consecutive hairpin turns.
