Misaki City (御崎市 Misaki-shi ) is the main location for most of the events in the Shakugan no Shana series. It is a large city located within the outskirts of Tokyo. It is divided into west and east by the Mana River, with the eastern part being the industrial area and the western part being the residential areas.
In summer, the inhabitants of this city celebrate the Misago Festival, which is a tourist attraction.
After the final war, Misaki City is restored to its normal state from the drastic distortion (ever since Friagne's arrival) with Lamies' Power of Unrestraint. It is later placed under observation by Flame Haze who did not leave for Xanadu.

- The architecture of Misaki City in the anime was likely inspired by the real life Saitama City and the cities which comprise it. The most notable resemblance is between Yoda Department Store and the real life Sogo Department Store in Ōmiya.
