Modular Japanese House Kit Tutorial – Interior Props – Part B

In this post, I will present the props contained in the following folders:  A_PropsInt/Mise, A_PropsInt/Food and A_PropsInt/Noren.


Mise (店) in Japanese means “store, shop, establishment, restaurant”. In this folder you find useful props for your Japanese shops or restaurants.

BP_Counter, BP_Counter_Corner

This is a type of counter: it has 3 material instances for the base and 3 for the shelves, the blueprint allows to make all possible combinations. You can see a practical use of these BPs in MS_Machiya_2,  MS_Machiya_10 and MS_Machiya_14 example maps.


BP_Counter_2, BP_Counter_2_Corner, BP_Counter_2_Refr, SM_SupportCeiling, SM_SupportCeilingCorner

These are meshes and BPs for another type of counter. You can see them at work in  sushi bar example (MS_Machiya_8 example map) or in MS_Machiya_11 and MS_Machiya_16 maps.

Shop signboards

SM_Signboard, SM_Signboard_Up_1, SM_Signboard_Up_2, SM_Sign_Izakaya


As the name suggests, this folder contains some food:

  1. SM_yakitori: Yakitori (焼き鳥), grilled chicken;
  2. SM_dango_4 : Mitarashi Dango (みたらし団子), still to be grilled (you can put it on the Asian grill mesh, as in this picture;
  3. SM_dango_3 : Hanami Dango, another type of dango (団子); it has three colors, and it’s traditionally made during Sakura-viewing season. Hence the name Hanami  (花見) that means “flower viewing”; “hana (花)” meaning “flower”, and “mi (見)” meaning “to see”.


Noren (暖簾) are the traditional Japanese curtains. They are used to protect a house from wind, dust, and rain and to keep a house warm on cold days or to provide shade on hot days. They are also use as decoration or  to divide a room into 2 separate spaces.
Noren are also quite common outside shops and restaurants with the double scope of protecting from the weather and displaying the logo of the business.

In this folder, you find also some banners for your shops. They can be all created using BP_banner.
