Description

This is an injection-plastic model kit of a scene or item related to the culture of Japan.

Furin, or wind chimes, are a vital part of the Japanese summer, since people think the sound of the chimes makes the temperature feel less stiflingly hot. I'm not sure it works, but the sound on a summer evening is lovely, as the different tones sound throughout the neighborhood. This kit is molded mostly in light brown, clear and silver plastic, and includes colored powder (green), a weeping willow, and printed materials and string for creating the chimes and other details.

This kit is part of Kawai Shokai's Fuubutsushi series ("Fuubutsushi" refers to things that remind you of certain seasons) of Japanese buildings, stores, and locations that allow you to recreate Japanese landscapes--it's just like being here! (If you're about 2 inches tall, anyway.) From Edo period sights to relatively modern ones, the wide variety of entries allows you to design the layout of your choice (after taking varying scales into account).
