‘Member that blog a few years ago about things white people like and how one of em was Japan?
The boy is saved from this cliché disgrace by not actually being white or else he would be a little anime-binging cringe machine furtively online shopping for Rising Sun flags and starting every sentence with “In Japan…”
I actually know a girl like that in my real life and she’s a ghastly little nightmare of a human. Because these sorts of cultural appropriation obsessions tend to be nightmarish.
I say all of this as sort of an apologetic preface to this blog post, which is in fact written by a white dude about things from Japan. In my defence, it IS beautiful, and the gacha sets from [[RH]] are just so cute and delicious. Plus… the little fox, as ever, inspires me. And so while as a bad racist joke I wanted to make him a storefront to work in called Matzu’s Nail Saron, I opted instead for this charming little set-up in our ye olde village.
TIP OF THE POST:
Explor mini projects before taking on big ones and you might surprise yourself! I’ve never done any sort of Asian-style decor before, let alone Japan-specific, but I’ve been plotting a winter Japanese sim for Christmastime with lots of snow and mountains and cherry blossoms. I was a bit nervous about such an undertaking so I let this little restaurant be my experimental foray into that genre. And in doing so, I discovered the aforementioned [[RH]] whose sets are so lovely that they become inspiring enough to have propelled me into charting unknown deco territory. And now I feel more prepared for such a massive undertaking in this theme as a simwide design.
