  • It was once thought that Sakura Motomachi was Springdale in the future, but many explanations prove to be false such as Springdale suddenly having a different river and road layout which can take many years to renovate. It was also disproved when the setting name was revealed in a Japanese Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble event, and when M05 came out which takes place in the past of that aforementioned place which looks completely different from Old Springdale.
  • Though this area is never visited in the present, it can be briefly seen during the first scenes of M05, where it looks almost exactly like in the past except for some minor changes.
