This is an injection-plastic model kit of a scene or item related to the culture of Japan.
One of the truly sublime experiences in Japan is staying at a hot spring resort, or onsen, up in the mountains--and if you're surrounded by snow while immersed to the neck in steaming hot water, so much the better! This 1/150-scale Mountain Spa kit comes with its own real grass--a mixture of timothy and clover! Wet the kit's mat, sprinkle it with the provided seeds, keep it moist, and soon you'll have a small patch of grass. It won't last forever, of course, but you may be able to find replacement mats at your local gardening store, and you can start over again. This kit is molded mostly in light brown, and includes colored powder (browns and green), a pine tree and stump, river rocks, printed materials for creating the river, and a bridge to build. Add an AA battery to light up the building!
This is one of the entries in Kawai Shokai's series of kits of Japanese buildings, stores, and locations that allows 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).
