Fushimi-Inari shrine is a pretty big deal these days among the foreign community who voted it the best attraction in Japan in some poll a couple of years ago. This film really helped bring it to a wider audience and many people want to seek out the bright torii gates which Chiyo runs through. More details here

Dec '09 - Jan '10 282 Tunisia Aug '09 230

Japan is so often last to get films released but every now and again it gets a worldwide exclusive and this was it. A friend got tickets, the review went up and accounted for the most ever hits in any single day on here. More details here

7. Euro Trip 2010 Pt VI: Star Wars Traveller – Naboo (a.k.a. Villa del Balbianello): 5 September 2010

Euro-Trip 2010 407 Euro-Trip 2010 236

The Star Wars traveller series of location blogs have always been very good to this site in terms of a constant high volume of hits but it is perhaps surprising that it’s the locations from the second prequel film which is the most popular. Not so different from the #5 entry but this was solely focused on the locations at the beautiful villa in Como. More details here

8. Star Wars Shop In Tokyo: 11 August 2010

As an increasing number of foreigners descend on Tokyo for holidays the search for more genre specific stuff is occurring and a shop solely devoted to Star Wars merchandise is one that has intrigued many. More details here

There was very little on the internet about the locations for this third movie which was directed by JJ Abrams. The huge number of hits is reward for my efforts in getting to this picturesque river town, finding the area where filming took place and then getting away from it to get back to Shanghai. More details here

Dec2010-Jan2011 322 Dec2010-Jan2011 310

The majority of the second Bourne film was shot in Berlin as it portrayed itself as well as Amsterdam, Moscow, Turin and Munich. No site went into as much detail as this one when it came to hunting down the locales. More details here
