This post is about my favorite example house in the pack, a sushi bar. This sushi restaurant isn’t inspired from a house found on Google map, but from a specific sushi bar in my favorite video game series, 龍が如く (Like a Dragon) known in the West as Yakuza.

When you have a cloth and you bend an arm or a leg, corrective morphs are used to make the cloth look realistically folded. In this post I describe how I’ve used Marvelous Designer to automatically create corrective morphs for clothes and imported them in DAZ3D.
Machiya_7 is inspired from liquor store also located in Ise in the Mie Prefecture on the same street as Machiya_6.
There are a lot of pictures of this store and they are the inspiration not only for the house itself, but also for a lot of props I’ve modeled for this project, like sake cups, bottles and barrels, curtains, shop signs, etc. Continue reading “Modular Japanese Town House Example Maps: MS_Machiya_7”

This house is inspired by this udon restaurant located in the city of Ise in the Mie prefecture.

This house is inspired by a real machiya I’ve found on Google maps. Located in Kanazawa, Ishikawa prefecture, this house is in reality a hotel, or more precisely a traditional Japanese inn ( 旅館 – ryokan). In my demo and example map is used like a house and not an inn, but I took some inspiration from the few photos I’ve found for the interior too.

This house example is a restaurant. The exterior is inspired by the restaurant next to the museum I took as inspiration for MS_Machiya_1, as you can see in this photo. For the interior of this example I didn’t take the real restaurant interior, as I did in other maps, but I invented one using various source of inspiration from photos on pinterest and video games.
