其処

「そこ」の情報

そこ is one of the forms of the それ family of words used to identify things close to the listener. In this case it demonstrates a place. Just like それ represents 'that', そこ represents 'that place', or simply 'there'.

In the same way that それ can be used to point back to something that was mentioned previously, そこ can be used to point back to a place that was mentioned previously.

Caution

そこ should not be confused with そっち, a similar word which is also sometimes translated as 'there'. そっち focuses more on the direction that one is/is going, while そこ focuses purely on 'that place'.

  • そっちです
    It is there. (Focus on the direction)
  • そこ()
    Put it there. (Focus on the place)

    Very pedantic question, but is there any change in nuance when using そこ instead of その in this example sentence?

    その
    そこのレストランは美味しいです。
    That restaurant is delicious.

    @deltacat3 そこ + の emphasizes the “place.” Think “that’s the place that is good.” rather than just “that restaurant is good.” That being said, even though Bunpro calls for the そこの answer, “そのレストラン” is more commonly heard in daily conversations. Cheers!
