Typically, when I go visit a sim, I’m attracted to/fascinated by the outdoors; the streets, building facades, and landscapes. This is almost invariably true for store locations.
I can’t show you any of that today. My camera refused to leave the display areas of Fuubutsu-dō↑.
I didn’t actually make it to the store. What I wandered into were tiny groups of wooden buildings with arrangements of furnishings, and other household items, that are available somewhere else on the island.
I wish I could show you everything I saw – you’ll just have to go experience the tea ceremony (among other things) yourself. I realized at one point that I had spent 30 minutes in just the sick room. Who would think that subject could look like art?
I’m going to go back and find that shop – there are pieces I really want to have. First I’ll have to finish exploring all those little structures though.
You can find her blog here↑, and check out her blog roll. There are some more gems on that list I plan to put on my itinerary!
Note: I stopped putting the large version of my images here because they took too long to load for many people. You can usually find the clearer full sized photos on my Koinup page↑.

Wizard Gynoid↑, that genius of geometry, master of math, virtuoso of virtual construct, is opening her latest advanced lesson in the art of points, lines, angles, surfaces and solids.
This enormous 3D Wireframe Grid↑ – the Isotropic Grid – extends in all directions to Infinity. Find the elevators on the ground that go up and down thru the whole structure.
She’s having an opening party from noon til 2:00 SLT today, July 27, with DJ Jim Tarber. You don’t have to love math – just be amazed at what somebody can do with it!

I’ve been having fun lately revisiting some of my favourite locations – ones I haven’t seen in a long time. I justify this by highlighting some of the changes to be found.
Of course, it could just be that my memory isn’t perfect – they’re worth revisiting anyway.
Black Kite↑ is still a minimalist world of the surreal and eccentric. There are more buildings than I remember from previous visits – nothing jarring or to take away from what I love about the place.
There is now a store (which includes gatchas) and it has some beautiful examples of how to do cute without sugary. This little guy is just one.
I hope the store does well – if it helps support the existence of the sim then it can stay on my list of favourite bookmarks.
This is a lovely location to just sit and contemplate life ….. or a gin & tonic.
