This is an injection-plastic model kit of a scene or item related to the culture of Japan.
Japanese pubs, or izakaya, are some of the finest things about living in Japan. They're great places to get tasty, cheap food and drink with a bunch of friends, and while the modern ones are a lot larger than the one this kit portrays, some of the ambiance still remains.This kit is molded mostly in light and dark brown, and includes colored powder (brown and green), a weeping willow, and printed materials for creating the windows and other details. For some reason the scale is not included, but it's most likely 1/60, as are most of the other kits in this series.
This is the 18th 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).
