Springdale (Japanese: さくらニュータウン Sakura Nyū Taun) is the main setting of the Yo-kai Watch series.

In the first game, Springdale is divided into five counties: Uptown in the center, Downtown to the south, Blossom Heights to the west, Shopper's Row to the southwest, and Breezy Hills to the east, with Mt. Wildwood to the north, which in the late game on contains a way into the Yo-kai World.

In the second game, the Springdale area is largely the same, only with the addition of a new area called Excellent Tower, which is east of Breezy Hills, and allows more of Mt. Wildwood to be explored, including its summit, also connecting it to Breezy Hills. The second game also expands the Railway System, allowing the player to reach the towns of Harrisville and San Fantastico.

Also, it allows the player to visit Springdale 60 years in the past, which is called "Old Springdale" (Japanese: 桜町 Sakura-machi), a smaller version of the city that keeps many parts of Springdale with the exception of Mt. Wildwood and Gourd Pond inside one area within the overworld.


Springdale (old)

Springdale from sixty years ago.

Sixty years ago, Springdale was a lot smaller and had an industrial district, and everything looked less developed and natural. While Blossom Heights was pretty undeveloped, Shopper's Row still had Flower Road and some of the residential houses, and the Nocturne Hospital (Though, inaccessible to the player) was in operation.

Some of the railway network was still being planned and Springdale Station had a one-way ticket system to Harrisville for a fee of $3.00.

It was unknown what happened to Springdale during the sixty-year time gap, but it is heavily implied that it started to get developed over time, like the industrial getting replaced by a downtown business area.

There is a pathway at the north-westmostern part of this district that leads to a hidden passage with a temple while in Yo-kai Watch 2, it leads to Mt. Wildwood with the Jumbo Slider.

Outside Springdale

Springdale appears to be a larger location than expected, and there are several areas that only appear in episodes of the anime.

Locations Outside Springdale

  • Yoke Eye State Beach


Springdale is heavily based in Japan, as judged by the architechture, a presence of a shrine in the area and how cars drive on the left compared to most western countries. It is not really known where Springdale is based, but the hot climate places it towards the mid-southern part of Japan.

Unlike most Japanese towns, Springdale seems to be more of a city with a bustling train station.


  • It's unknown where Springdale is, though some of the Recap Times do show the geography in both Japanese and English dubs.
    • In Japanese version, it is somewhere between the Kansai and Chogoku regions.
    • According to the dub, the exact location in the US is unknown. In EP009, it is in Georgia. But EP019 states that it's in the New England area.
