Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Formerly used as a base for the patriots' hideout during edo era, Himeya Inn, originally located at simKyoto, was a historical building which survived the fierce battle between Simsen-gumi and the anti-shogunate forces...
Blahh, I'm not good at making stories, so scrap that and let's just proceed to the screenshots..

The house is, well, quite ordinary..

the interior is somewhat modern..

The house includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with separated bath-toilet.
it has a tiny waterfall, 2 carports, indoor pool, and a garden for your green-thumbs..

and I swear this will be my first and last house with waterfall!!
Seriously, those uneven ponds are such a pain to deal with.. <.<
- in case the waterlilies appears drowned, go to build mode and use the 'flatten lot' tool, then hit undo to fix it.
- don't use any terrain tools near the pond ! it will drop the water level..

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

Lot Size: 40x40
Lot Price:
Furnished: § 87,666
Unfurnished: § 59,231

Automobiles not included !
I left the bicycle though.. it's healthier..

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 87,666F/59,231U

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Oooh I really have to learn from you... especially on the insides... It's an art to make it look sort of Japanese without any kind of decent furniture or decoration for that...

This is great, I didn't know someone else had already made Traditional Japanese homes.

There are three sides to a story:
Your side, the other person's side and the truth.

Just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you! Beautiful house, it's exactly what I was looking for and I'm beyond thrilled that it works with the latest patch and didn't crash my game unlike some of the previous lots I tried. I am loving this house!

Amazing house, I'm using it for my favorite family. :D
I was really impressed with the way you patterned the smaller rugs in certain rooms (like the livingroom), and how the bathrooms are like traditional Japanese bathrooms (i.e. the toilet and shower/bath are in separate rooms).
Thank you so much!
