As of now, most of Hanamura is located on a beach biome at a large body of water. However, city expansion plans will lead the city into a forest biome, with a large river going through it. Most of the terrain is fairly flat but when the city expands into the forest, there may be some difficulty with the large elevation step.
Chihiro Ogino Park
Chiniro Ogino Park was the first thing to ever be built in Hanamura. It is a medium-sized pedestrian park with Cherry Blossoms (aka Sakura, 桜) planted everywhere. The park is a very relaxing place to visit and it has benches all over the place. But, this park also has a religious aspect as well. The kaku-dōrō (角灯籠) are stone lanterns that are thought to be offerings to the Buddha.
Hanamura doesn't have a lot of history yet, but more information will be added as the city progresses.
The town was founded on September 23rd when MikeRoma had an idea to start a new town. He took inspiration from Kantō, a town south of Hanamura, which was founded by camelfantasy. Kantō was a Japanese town as well, but MikeRoma wanted to create a town with a stronger Japanese culture along with modern Japanese achitecture.
A Fresh Start
When the town was first founded, MikeRoma had no idea how to start building. After some thinking, he decided to make quays and put a park on the western side of town. The Chihiro Ogino Park was the first actual build/project to be made. It took about 2-3 days to construct and made use of the custom trees lalaboy made for public use in the lab world.
Later on, after the park had been finished, the first road was created. It's width of 11 blocks allowed for more broad streets and a more realistic city. Spaces for buildings had been planned out, alleyway roads had been made, and all of these roads were created with public transport in mind.
Every single building in this town was based off of a real-life image of Japanese/Modern architecture. This made the city unique and allowed for interesting building shapes. The first few buildings were built and already the town had residential and commercial possibilities.
