Next, it’s time to venture into the New World!


The New World

現実の航路 新世界 突入  クジラ

Summary so far【Middle East】

現実の航路 ゾウ

The green line

I believe Zou is modeled after the Parthian dynasty, an ancient Iranian kingdom that was a rival to the Roman Empire.

The highly valuable red resin that can only be obtained from the dragon’s blood tree on Socotra Island.

Red-Nosed Poneglyph

Eiichiro Oda gathers inspiration by encompassing information from all aspects of the world.

Now, the country on the back of the elephant, Zou, continues.

I plan to upload an image that shows all the routes at a glance as the very last step.

Next is the route to retrieve Sanji.


Retrieve Sanji

現実の航路 サンジ奪還
source: ONE PIECE by Eiichiro Oda

Sanji is a symbol of France.
Pudding is a symbol of Belgium.

“The Belfries of Belgium and France” is quite literally a UNESCO World Heritage Site that spans two countries.

When it comes to bells, we think of wedding bells.

There are 56 belfries registered as World Heritage Sites.

The number 56 is associated with wordplay related to rubber in Japanese.

It’s a thoroughly calculated and well-crafted story.

Whole Cake Island・Chocolatown

AttributeWorld Cultural Heritage

Summary so far【ヨーロッパ】

現実の航路 サンジ奪還ルート

Big Mom shares many similarities with Maria Theresa, so I consider Whole Cake Island to be modeled after the Habsburg Empire era.

Now, we’re entering the final chapter.


The final chapter

現実の航路 最終章
source: ONE PIECE by Eiichiro Oda

“Kid, who sailed northeast after leaving Wano Country, arrived at Elbaf.”

Law, who sailed east, arrived at Wiener Island.

And Luffy, who headed southeast, arrived at Egghead.

It’s a place where the world’s cutting-edge technology converges, with Vega Force One’s landing base, and where hamburgers, potatoes, and cola are the main diet.

It appears to be that continent once again.

Going around the Grand Line

現実の航路 グランドライン
  • The orange line goes from Reverse Mountain to Sabaody Archipelago
  • “The green line represents the route taken two years later
  • The pink line shows the route taken when Sanji was retrieved

It’s evident that countries other than Egypt in Africa, South America, and Australia have not been depicted yet.

“Among the three continents, is one of them Laugh Tale?”
