A portmanteau of San Francisco and TokyoSan Fransokyo is the setting of the iconic franchise, Big Hero 6.


Following the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, Japanese immigrants helped rebuild by contributing key Japanese building techniques that allowed the city to flourish and prevail in the face of the seismic events like never before. Following this restitution, San Francisco was renamed San Fransokyo in honor and recognition of it being a city reborn thanks to a combination of Japanese and American architecture, landscaping and engineering skills.[1] The city's iconic amalgamation of American and Japanese culture followed soon thereafter.


The city of San Fransokyo is an Eastern-Western blend of aesthetics covering a fairly extensive region on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is host to such notable locations as the popular Lucky Cat Café, the mysterious Akuma Island and the illustrious San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. Downtown San Fransokyo is where the large majority of the events chronicled in the film take place. Japanese flora and fauna can also be found across the city, such as Japanese cherry blossoms and Japanese bobtail cats.
