Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It's a traditional japanese style house, although not entirely..
Because if I follow the original design, my sims won't be able to sleep, eat, or even sit !


2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Kitchen and Dining hall, and a Living room.
There's not much room left btw, and I don't recommend modifying it into a 2 story since the roof is a bit tricky..

The living room

Those array of rugs were supposed to be Tatami :P
but since our sims can't sit on a Tatami, I had no choice but to place the usual furniture sets.. *boo*

the others are just ordinary, nothing special, really..

And this is my first time making ponds btw, so any comments or feedback are greatly appreciated !

It's hard to make natural looking ponds. I hope this one isn't too artificial..

It's play tested, newspaper in front gate, pizza guy also waits at the front gate. And sims can fish at the pond, though the access is a bit far (it wasn't meant to be a fishing site anyways)

That's all, hope you enjoy the house..

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Its a shame we can't have a kotatsu in the main room, perhaps someone can mod a picnic set into one in the future as tools become available. Until then, however you have done just about the best job possible. Well done!

I'm sorely tempted now to take an empty neighbourhood and turn it into a Japanese suburb. If only the Sims wasn't so restrictively American

Great work and I really love the pond, I wan't some Koi :D

Finally, a house worth downloading. Seriously there's too many houses being made. People need to direct that energy into making actual mods and hacks, something that there's not been an overabundance of.

This looks absolutely beautiful. This house with work wonderfully for a story I wanted to make. There is a strong lack of Japanese or overall Asian things being made available.

ooh, a kotatsu would be perfect for sims 3 seasons !

A shrine community lot that holds a matsuri or bon-odori once a week sounds sweet for sims 3 holiday !

ooh, I would love to mod that bar and turn it into a tea ceremony set.
and.. whatever happened to the jacuzzi ? perhaps EA is planning to release an onsen instead ?
that would be superb !!

but then again, there's this phrase..
"If only the Sims wasn't so restrictively American"

and I stopped daydreaming..

Awesome! I was planning on making some asian sims, but I haven't got around to do it yet, because I wanted a Japanese home for them too.. But now I can ^^

Thanks a lot!

Firts of all, this is the most amazing house I've ever seen on this game! I've tryed to make japanese ones on my own but I still haven't got used to the tools (since I've never played sims 2)

Second:

"whatever happened to the jacuzzi ? perhaps EA is planning to release an onsen instead ?
that would be superb !!"

"If only the Sims wasn't so restrictively American"

Hey, hey! Wouldn't it be just so fabulous if they made expansions for diferent cultures instead of what that season and pet things we are already tired of? It would be amazing and pretty original to have asian, african, south american and european expansions!

Wasn't it with he purpose of being an international game that the simlish was created?

GUYS, WANNA MAKE A PETITION OR SOMETHING?

very cool & it would be cool for them to sit on the tatami mats. Maybe in the expansion? Still I'm loving the looking of this. I look forward to my sims rooming here
