Not really (laughs). Translator's Note:*He literally said "going to the actual place," which seemed to be a literal place, but I don't think that's what he meant.
**He was concerned with the meaning of one of the kanji characters of the word, which carries the meaning of image, etc. in his response, which is why I made the question sort of awkward? D: I was trying to keep the wording of the question and the wording of his answer similar enough that the reason he switched his answer is more apparent. I hope I was successful. >_
