This is first zbrush sculpting, I did it a couple of months ago, but I didn’t find neither the time neither the spirit to publish it on the blog, because of a sad event happening at the time.
Kitsune means fox in Japanese and these statues are typical of inari shrines, like the famous Fushimi Inari-taisha in Kyoto Prefecture. It was since the time of the MJH Modular Japanese Town House kit for UE4 Marketplace that I wanted to sculpt them, but only now I’ve started learning Zbrush (and I really love it).
As this statues are my very first Zbrush sculpting, I’ve decided to give them for free to everybody. You can download them on itch.io and use them in your projects under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International.

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.

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. In this particular location, there are a few streets composed only of traditional houses, so it was for a really good source of inspiration and a lot of the machiya examples available in my pack come from this specific location.

This house is inspired by the machiya in this photo. It’s the photo of a rent house in Kyoto located near Gion, one of the famous Kyoto districts. Continue reading “Modular Japanese Town House Example Maps: MS_Machiya_4”
The tea-house, in Japanese “chashitsu” (茶室) – literally tea-room, is a small house in the garden designated for the tea ceremony.
The structure of a chashitsu and of the garden around it are pretty much always the same and well defined.

I’ve decided to take a little time to present each of the 19 pre-built example houses you find in the pack MJH Modular Japanese Town House we offer on the Unreal Marketplace. These example maps are created using the houses I have built for the demo of the pack and are meant to show what you can accomplish with the assets of MJH, but you can also use them as they are or with modifications in your levels. That’s why I want to spend sometime speaking of each house.
Today, let’s see MS_Machiya_1. Continue reading “Modular Japanese Town House Example Maps: MS_Machiya_1”
