I went to see a Toxie (Toxic Darkmatter) live music show tonight and was pleasantly surprised, actually that]s too mild of a statement for what I found when I landed in this new multi-sim area by Kim (kimberlywells). I was told some of the sim is under construction but I couldn't tell from all the highly detailed places I saw. The sim opened last week and apparently I hit their 2nd live music event when Toxie was singing. I enjoyed the music while camming and then Lee and Lori Winegarden showed me a few "other" places on the sim that can't be seen from ground level camming. Just WOW! Seriously this is a sim to be seem and enjoyed. They explored some of the animations built into the landscape that were also very realistic and fun. So what can I say beyond it's a must see sim? Well, there are numerous venues, built obviously in a Japanese style. I checked the sim info. which reads: "A place of peace, contentment and love. A recreation of the edo period of Japan. All are welcome, Kimonos are desired but not required. No nudity except in the onsen (public baths). No sexual conduct of any sort. Violators will be sent home. Now having DJs and Live Music on the sim. IM me for info.

This build is amazing.. kudos to Kim! There are waterways, waterfalls, beautiful boats and beautiful nature areas, numerous buildings and music venues, fishing, a few rentals, hang out areas, pose spots with unique looks to them, a gorgeous church/religious area, underwater places to be discovered as well as magical places in the sky. This is a multi-visit explore and a place friends will want to come back to again and again for the sim and for the music events. I actually didnt even have time to make it around to see everything as it's so highly detailed and surprisingly easy to move around in for such an amazing place. I will have to go back again to see it all, and I also look forward to seeing the areas Kim is still working on.
Kim also writes in the welcome note, in part:
"Welcome to the Taka no Sakura Estate, a group of 4 sims at the moment. A group built upon the ideas of the Japanese edo period using some of the structures of Ryu 竜 (ryusho Ort). A person now retired but well known his attention to detail, order, symmetry and peace of the edo period. This project has become somewhat like Disneyland to me in that it will never be completely finished. At any rate, this estate is now open to the public. it is my fondest hope that you come in peace and harmony of spirit and that you enjoy this sim as much as I do. Peaceful comments to the owner of the sims are always welcome. It was built as mainly a park sim and a gift to the well meaning people of Second Life. Public event plans are most welcome........Personal Note
This Estate was re-built entirely by me and with the advise of friends. However, it was originally conceived of by Mika chan 美香ちゃん (Sakiko Shilling) and 油原佐用利 (Sayouri Yuhara). I remain committed to keeping their vision open and alive while mixed with my own. A real East meets West sort of thing; I hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoy building it (my 1st sim).
