1/25 Sweet Potato Shop

by Kawai Shokai
$5.96 USD $6.62 USD


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

These roasted sweet potato (yaki imo) stalls are still a familiar sight and sound throughout Japan, particularly in the winter. Vendors push their carts (okay, drive their trucks these days) around the city, ringing the bell and singing the yaki imo song. Build your very own 1/25-scale stall with this kit, molded mostly in light brown, which includes colored powder (brown), a tree, and printed materials for creating the signs and other details.

This is the ninth entry in Kawai Shokai's Fuubutsushi series (fuubutsushi refers to things that remind you of certain seasons). The series includes 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).
