This is #3 from my set of shops to accompany my set of homes inspired by the little thumbnail pictures of the buildings collected in "We Love Katamari," the second Katamari Damacy game. In that collection each shop had a blurb about it, which I've added below.

This lot works best for owning, but may also be used for visiting. For owning, the phones can't be put up for sale, but everything else can. While working, most needs may be met with the vending machines, public toilet, and medicine cabinets, which are strange for public toilets, but help with hygiene so much that I thought them useful. For visiting, the items won't be on sale, but the atmosphere works, as people turn on the televisions and talk about how great the picture quality is. And if you haven't checked out the break dancing, there's that to do. Also the billboard is just something I added for fun.

3-Electronics Store

A cozy place full of TVs and refrigerators. It seems like a great place to live, but you'd get kicked out if you tried it.

Public Toilet

I wasn't for long in Japan, but you did a great job - it really looks like a Japanese village shop.

Wow - I like all your lots and am downloading them now. They look really japanese, you should think about doing a complete japanese neighbourhood. Or you create some more and then it would be great to make a japanese only neighbourhood. Great gaming inspiration you make with these lots!

Very simple neighbourhood tv store if you ask me. Very realistic too with youngsters breakdancing around the corner. Thank you.

I cannot get the doors because the site you linked to doesn't appear to exist anymore.

Yes, they haven't existed since before this was put up.

As it says in the post: "Thanks to SimPeople and Me, a site that is now gone, but have allowed item sharing."

The post also explains how to get them: "You will find the additional CC that didn't package grouped in the one file. Just install ".Sims2Pack" as usual and add ".package" files to the downloads folder."
