Wonderful work! What a perfect recreation of a Japanese harbour. The MMPing is done extremely well, too :thumbsup:

Great update as always !  &apls &apls &apls
I especially like the very realistic overviews and the last pic. This close view of the small fishing port is stunning !
And the choice of buildings is perfect everywhere. One would imagine a real reproduction. It's impressive !  :thumbsup:

Thanks for your kind comment manga rivotra, It is not a real recreation, but I must say that I try to take a look at google earth almost every day, I know very good the coast of Japan  $%Grinno$%.



Just a teaser for today's update. A small village located pretty close to Hatsukaichi main port

Hi! I haven't been there for a while... Well, I repeat what feyss and korver said, you have done a lot of great work with coastline and sea bed. The transparency of water is just in the point!  ;)

• Update #7 || Hatsukaichi - Closer View •

##############################################################################

• Hello everyone, in the last update we've seen Hatsukaichi from the heights, now is time to get closer and see all the details that this village can offer to us. This update has a great amount of pictures and all of them are focused in the village of Hatsukaichi and non in its port. We will visit the port in the next update.  •



•  This is Japan and that means that you can reach all places easily. You can reach Hatsukaichi by car; using the Highway, national road or just driving across the roads of the prefecture. By train and also by ferry. in this picture you can see the Highway that cross Saitama from south to north and also the Shinkansen line, it has not station in Hatsukaichi. •











 • Trains are everywhere, even if only one rail line cross the village there are trains passing through Hatsukaichi all the time •





 • Here is where the national road is connected with Hatsukaichi, it is one of the entries of the village •





• Hatsukaichi during normal days •





• The first school in Hatsukaichi, still in function •





• There are not too many flats in this village, most of the areas are covered by old low houses •



• Some trains parked right in front of the Hatsukaichi station •







• The sea has always been good friend in Japan, anyway it is better to keep distances •









• The city hall and the Hatsukaichi temple •

( More info later)










• Hatsukaichi at night  (Very nice and quiet place to live) •

• Update #8 || Hatsukaichi - The Port + Extra •

##############################################################################


• Hello everyone, today I want to share with all of you the last update of Hatsukaichi. We have visited this wonderful town in the last 2 updates but  I wanted to leave the port for the last update of Hatsukaichi. Why ? I have put a lot of effort into making this port and I'm really happy with the result, to me the port of Hatsukaichi means a step forward in my way to the perfect recreation of the Japanese landscape. I hope you enjoy all the pictures and the update itself •



• In the past, the Hatsukaichi lighthouse was located far from the population and the buildings. This was previously a small peninsula far from the habitable zones of Hatsukaichi •



• Due to the strong demand in the country and the shortage of land, the city was gradually gaining space to the sea and today the lighthouse is part of the town itself •





• To understand the progress of the port first it is necessary to explain its past. The port is divided into 3 parts, in these two pictures you can see the old port; this one was the first port of Hatsukaichi. It's shape is quite simple, just a small zone created on a a shallow area, building it was simple and for the small and old boats there was no problem of depth ( In the past Hatsukaichi used its port only to supply fish for its inhabitants ) •





• When the people of Hatsukaichi realized that the fishing could be a good business, they built an extension of the old port, the part two. Part two consisted in building a dock for ships a little bigger and deeper where the first fishing companies could be established. The Hatsukaichi fish market was also built •



• Part two of the port was built between the lighthouse and the old port of Hatsukaichi •



• In this image you can appreciate how the old port (Part 1) and the extension (part 2) are perfectly connected along the shoreline •



• Currently part 2 of the Hatsukaichi port is normally used by small boats because the larger ships use the new port that we will see below.
A small security post was also built to maintain maritime control of the area •



• The new port of Hatsukaichi (Part 3)  is bigger and more modern, its docks are more spacious and functional and it has much more space for the workers and their trucks •



• The part 3, the new port of Hatsukaichi is the heart of the town, most of the inhabitants are working here, fishing is the main business for this people and Hatsukaichi has it own fame. It is located far of the city center, far from the main ports and industries of the prefecture. Its fish is fresh and it is very famous in the entire prefecture of Saitama, for that reason during the all day ships are transporting fish from here to the main port of the Prefecture, located in Tokyu, the biggest city of Saitama Prefecture •

##################################################################################





• If you are one of those people who usually come to Hatsukaichi to buy fish or you are just passing by, I recommend you visit this small town located west of Hatsukaichi •





• It really has nothing special but for those people who live in the big cities of the Prefecture small towns like this are pure fresh air, simply walk through its small and narrow streets while listening to the sound of the Saitama Sea •



• The Saitama Prefecture It is a huge place, it is known as the port of Japan, the whole prefecture is destined to the sea and not only the big international ports are important, ports and places like these contribute to keep our Prefecture in perfect operation. I hope you enjoyd your visit and until the next time my friends •

Wonderful recent updates Jonathan, Hatsukaichi is a beautiful city.  :)

Funny how your version of Saitama is a big port while the real Saitama is a land locked prefecture.  :D

It's excellent! Really! I love your job MMP, you have the light and intelligent hand to put them where it is needed. MMP paths that furrow the houses along the coast and very beautiful, as the docks. Great job! &apls

Hi Jonathan ,

My apologies for not commenting your MD more often  :thumbsdown: , you’re attached to realism and details so , of course , your MD is one of my favorite  :) … this update  is perfectly showing your skill with MMPs and I like particularly how you play with the water transparency , the shore in its all with the underwater work is outstanding indeed . &apls
