Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱
There is no need to introduce Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱.
Hyougo-ken Nishimiya-shi 兵庫県西宮市 - Nishimiya-Kitaguchi-eki Nishi-Kita-kouen 西宮北口駅 にしきた公園
This is the park where the SOS-dan usually meet. The park, together with the clock tower, was closed down in July 2009 for building an underground bicycle car park. The clock tower, as known as Haruhi Clock, was in the possession of a scrap contractor. A Haruhi fan, Mrs Nakajima Naoko, found out where the clock was located, and together with fellow location hunter KeyBoar, they lobbied the city council on the possibility to resurrect the clock tower in the rebuilt park. The clock tower was finally re-opened at the park on 12 April 2014.

The nearest train station is Nishimiya-Kitaguchi station 西宮北口駅 of Hankyuu Honsen 阪急本線 and Hankyuu Imazusen 阪急今津線.
