Miniature Japanese Ryokan

I feel really lucky to have gotten this house. It is from Japan, and is called a Ryokan, which is a Japanese Inn and Spa. It was originally sold as a subscription in Italy and Japan, and came in 110 packages. Each package is numbered, and they are assembled in order, until the house is completed. Here are a few photos I took when the kits came today.
This is a photo from the center of the first instruction book showing the house closed.
This one shows the house open.Sorry it's blurry, it's dark, and my cellphone didn't do a very good job.
These are some of the kits. To see a beautifully built version of this house, you can visit my online friend Peggy's blog.


  1. Excellent!!! So happy and looking foward to your progress!

  2. I just hope my house comes out as well as yours did. I don't think I would have attempted this if I hadn't seen your blog!

  3. I've been looking for this kit. Can it be bought all at once and is it hard to get ? How's the quality ?? Please email me is possible, very interested.

    1. I sent you an email Tony. But as I said in the email, they are really rare, especially as a whole kit.
