They both talk about two teenagers in love who get separated bit by bit. They also both have a movie adaptation.

Long-distance love (not relationship, just feeling) with rare meetings and a sence of innoscence - that is common, though masterpieces differ a lot

If you liked Byousoku 5 Centimeter, then you might also enjoy reading Kotonoha no Niwa, since both stories come from the desk of Shinkai Makoto, so the way of narration & overall atmosphere are similar. They touch such themes like one's isolation & relationships between the others, as well as they talk about love interest, & desire to keep the other person close. Both of them are also thought-provoking & nostalgic.

Both are short bittersweet romance tales from director/author Makoto Shinkai with themes of separation and heartbreak. Kimi no Na wa differs with supernatural elements while Byousoku 5 Centimeter focuses more on the relationships between characters. If your a fan of Makoto Shinkai or short romance tales you'll be sure to like these works.

- ill-fated romances - beautiful art (3 level combination in full color!) - both relationships face grave obstacles - if you like one im sure you'll like the other as well!

Both stories involve two people separated by distance, time, and obligations in life. The endings are open-ended, and cherry blossoms play a symbolic part in both plots.

Both are separated in short stories. Both talk about distant love and moving on from relationships. Both have a bittersweet romance. 
reportRecommended by NeoVenezia
Sad drama stories about distance between people and also distance in love. In both characters try to reach themselves, but in another way. Both have the same, melancholic feeling, though Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai is more dramatic. 
reportRecommended by TenshiNoYume
Both manga deal with the struggles of life and coping with those situations - that is, moving on.
