Hey!

hope you guys and gals are having a good day!

I want to start off by saying that i'm sorry for being gone soo long.

And that I really do miss being a part of all this...

Also I must mention that this is going to be a slow return due to school and stuff keeping me so busy.

But nevertheless here we are!

WELCOME

to

KURODA CASTLE!

Part1-1.jpg?t=1348955732

Kuroda Castle lies just on the edge of the Hejiki mountain range. The mountain range is located along the side off the Hokkodian Capital Ikoshima.

you may notice in the top next to the castle is a blocked road. That is where people would go to start their trek through the mountains to get to the city.

But in more recent centuries a tunnel has been built and is used for traveling.

Part2-1.jpg?t=1348955842

Kuroda Castle was built back in the early years of the Hokkodian Revolution.

Back at the time of its construction the castle was used as a strategic base for Dako Machi and her forces.

Part3-1.jpg?t=1348955904

Due to the location of the castle it provided the Freedom Fighters with great protection when the city was under siege by the Emperor's forces.

Part6-1.jpg?t=1348955958

In the years following the war homes were built for the servants that worked in the caslte.

in the 1990's all the homes around the castle were fully restored to there previous beauty.

Part5-1.jpg?t=1348956109

Nowadays Kuroda Castle is mainly used as a tourist attraction, and the home around sell authentic Hokkodian food, clothing, and knickknacks.

Part7-1.jpg?t=1348956151

Thanks for visiting Kuroda Castle and do come again soon!

A Look Back

Dear Friends,

Hokkodo has been lost....

Im sad to say this has happened, a random drive wipe has cleared off Hokkodo and all my downloads... not to mention a bunch of my parents stuff...

I knew that I would take a break soon for the start of school and soccer practice, but this is not how I wanted to do it.

I shall live on though, and shall come back even stronger. I am not one to give up..

;)

Things like the Simlympics shall be put off for now.

I will continue to support and comment on CJs and in the forums.

But before I put Hokkodo on hiatus while I rebuild I want to share some of our greatest moments together...

REPLIES:

Every single person that has ever seen and liked my CJ - Thanks to all of you to whom without I would not feel compelled to return.

Welcome

It is time once again for the War Zone Ashiake...

crime+scene.jpg

Every year it happens. actually twice a year this happens...

What is it overrun by you ask?

...

.....

............

Otaku!

Welcome to Ani-Con!

Two times a year Ashiake is host to Ani-Con!

A huge convention with all sorts of things! from Anime to Manga, Heck even Video Games!

But not just any major brand product... Everything is "home made" or self published...

That makes everything here ultra rare! Something, after the convention can resell from up to 10 to 20 times the original price!

Ani-ConAshiake7-1.jpg?t=1343164911

Ani-Con takes place in the long open air arcades that are in downtown Ashiake.

There are also concerts on the "last day" where they show all the highest rated Anime from that session.

Ani-ConAshiake5-1.jpg?t=1343164879

Cosplay is also a favorite among real "Hard Core" fans..

cure-cosplay-festival-vol-2-049.jpg

*My Costume this session. don't you like!*

Officials suggest that first time attendees come in the afternoon as to not get stuck in morning lines...

Some of the morning lines can last up to an hour! And to even get in in the morning can take up to four hours!

Ani-ConAshiake8-1.jpg?t=1343164944

Ani-ConAshiake3-1.jpg?t=1343164812

Some fateful "Idol Encounters" have occurred durring this session.

Vectorized_Confused_Mama_Luigi_by_lordkhaos0.png

One "Encounter" Included MamaLuigi945, who was seen drinking out of a water fountain.

Ani-ConAshiake1-1.jpg?t=1343164649

Ani-ConAshiake2-1.jpg?t=1343164779

Ani-Con may only last three days, but its average attendance is over 490,000!

It is second in size to only Tokyo's Comiket.

Ani-ConAshiake4-1.jpg?t=1343164848

Thanks for coming to Ani-Con!

Please come again next session, maybe you could even visit in the morning hours...

;)

Also stay tuned as we visit Ashiake (Non Ani-Con)

Welcome to the Island of Epi!

The relaxing nature hub in Hokkodo.

First off is our little town...

VIslands1-1.jpg?t=1342036941

VIslands2-1.jpg?t=1342036913

The town is very dependent on its fishing...

VIslands3-1.jpg?t=1342036879

But does have rice too!

Now just a little thing I forgot to mention...

Epi, is a volcano...

VIslands4-1.jpg?t=1342036754

But its been inactive for hundreds of years...

Another famous spot is the Chikigawa Bell Tower

VIslands7-1.jpg?t=1342036451

Right...

VIslands6-1.jpg?t=1342036419

Here...

VIslands5-1.jpg?t=1342036489

Now for some fun history!

The Bell tower was built by Rein Chikigawa, a merchant sailor a long time ago, who was the first Hokkodian to find the Island....

Now at that time...

!!!GGRRRUUGGGAHAHAAHGGUGHAHGA!!

No.. no.... this does not happen... not here!!!

We must go now tell the towns folk!!!

Welcome Back!

I have been absent for a while because I was so busy with work... Sorry.

Some Music to set the mood...

REPLIES:

Fox - Good luck on the Bid .. hope you keep up this enthusiasm right up to the next bidding period!

Thanks! I sure will try!

hahei - That's beautiful! Good Luck!

Thanks very much!

MillitantRadical - Great pics. Love the depth of field effect you've added, really helps those stadiums stand out.

Thanks! I really like that effect too that's why I used it.

111222333444 - Good Luck Simul8ter8 (PS I ain't bidding because I have a vacation that month)

Thanks! Not bidding! that's horrible, (less competition) have a good vacation though.

westy177 - lol thats what i meant love the shenzen stadiums i believe awsome random pics too you know what amazing update

:)

Thanks.. I think your punctuation got lost though. lol

NMUSpidey - That is a fantastic city, but Google Translator is incredibly painful to read. If you want, I can do a better job of helping your Japanese translation than that awful online thing can, at least for short phrases and names and such (long Japanese, storytelling, speeches, etc. is a bit beyond my skill level at the moment). Great pictures, lovely city journal at any rate!

I know it really is awful, I used it just for effect. (I think it looks really cool) And to the offer... That would be awesome! If I need to, ill just PM you. Thanks.

SimCoug - You are truly a master in the Photoshop department. Have you ever thought about showing some of the tricks you use to get those great effects?

One of my greatest secrets is photobucket... Just sayin'. (the rest must stay a mystery for now) And Thanks!

Wraner - this is very nice. Looks like I'll have to build a big city in order to compete with this. I hope an American city is good enough!

Thanks. Hope to see yours soon!

:}

Jetty Jockey - Beautiful in any language ! The realism in your art just boggles the mind .

Says one of the best at realism... lol.

Mastof - Good bid!

Thank you sir.

I_am_one - The amount of effort is un comparable

Yes it does take alot of effort! thanks for noticing!

Benedict - Excellent work!

Thanks! hope to see that list soon!

Moving On...

As the title says here are some pictures of Hokkodo in the Fall. Enjoy.

(And remember the Simlympics that I am bidding for are in the fall. *wink wink*)

Thanks!

MamaLuigi945 - Really amazing pics, especially the night shots.

;)

Why Thank you!

TenkindusT - The details at the 6th pic are breathtaking!

Thanks! I think so too!

Kinderly - Amazing photo editing! What building is the highrise on the left in the second pic?

Thanks! The building is part of this pack...

Inside it has a readme with a list of dependencies

111222333444 - Wow, I like it

:D

Thank you sir!

woodb3kmaster - Absolutely fantastic! You photoshopped those pics just enough to make them really outstanding.

Might I ask what that building with the Coca-Cola billboard is? (It's in the bottom-right corner of the first night shot.)

Thanks! No you can't... JK here it is...

It's just over on the STEX

Shulmanator - Nice new pix of a very lively town.

Thanks!

SimCoug - Photo editing is amazing. The parking lot with the leaves on the ground - are the leaves edited, or is that 'as is'.

If so, how did you achieve that? It's details like that that make this a great CJ. Keep it up!

Thank you! And the leaves are not edited, that's just part of the prop. (I didn't make the prop) I wish I had edited something like that!

panthersimcity4 - I looked at your other updates, me gusta! Me gusta mucho. I like the colors in your pics. And everything is very detailed!!

Thanks! extra thanks for looking through the other entries!

MilitantRadical - Thanks for those parks, i'll have to fit them in somewhere. I like the Photoshopping, the softness makes it realistic and dreamy at the same time.

Thanks! Good luck with them!

;)

NMUSpidey - Wonderful pictures for sure. Closeup shots are really great, especially since this game can be so detailed. That's just amazing that someone BATed a Yoshinoya on the ground floor of one of those buildings! (7th picture, top center building, orange/white sign w/black lettering) Cool.

Thanks! Ikr these things that people spend there time making, just for us to use, is awesome!!!

TowerDude - Competition D:

That is honestly the nicest thing you could possible say!

:D Thanks!

Fox - Love the small details and the close ups.

Thanks! PS love that you use that pink colour for all your comments. that way I always know when Fox is saying something!

Since Amiyako was so well received (and I still needed to finish it) I decided to show moar!!!

REPLIES

MayorDreams - That was just ummmmmm........B E A-UTIFUL

Why Thank ya!

TenkindusT - This is... HD!

I heard that means Highly Desirable right? So thanks!

ggamgus - Nooooo! This... is... Hokkodooooooo! *kicks Tekindus*

*Cough thanks for setting him strait cough*

NMUSpidey - The Asian BATs are pretty awesome. I can say from experience that it looks fairly realistic, and the night pictures are... Sensational. 5/5!

EDIT: The map on the previous page reminds me of a manga my wife and her dad read a few years ago where a massive earthquake splits Japan in two,

destroying Kanto and sinking it and Niigata into the ocean. I have no idea who wrote/drew it or what the story is because I can't be bothered with manga, but they liked it a lot.

Thanks! it means alot! And the thing about the Manga sounds awesome!!!

escilnavia - Mega epic for sure

Thank you.

SimCoug - "It's a map" Doh! But they are amazing maps - did you do that in Photoshop? I'm curious how you created those.

Well, actually it was hand drawn, then scanned on to my computer, then using paint

(Some program on windows) I drew over the pencil lines and erased everything else...

So all in all it took me.. forever to make.

:D

Mastof - Omagash Dat Map

Thank you!

Hellken - Beautiful train station. What's it called?

It's Kotoni Station on HIDE-INOKI. It's totally one of my favorites.

MilitantRadical - Neat map. What did you make it with?

Thanks! it took a long time to make.

As I told SimCoug I drew it by hand, scanned it, and used paint.

IT'S A MAP!

That's right!

In this entry I shall be showing a couple maps of Hokkodo.

So then when I say, we are here on this island in this prefecture, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Also because I am on high realism alert right now, and love to make maps!

First up is a map showing the names of the main Islands of Hokkodo!

HokkodoMap1-1.jpg?t=1336951408

Hokkodo was established in 988 but was internationally recognized in 1014.

Hokkodo is also home to about 160 million people

Hokkodo covers about 160 thousand square feet. roughly the size of California.

The National language of Hokkodo is Japanese.

:Languages Percentage:

Japanese 99%

Korean 41%

English 28%

Mandarin Chinese 14%

Hokkodian Dialects 3%

(percentage of people that speak each language)

Prefecture Map

(sorry if it's hard to read...)

HokkodoMap2-1.jpg?t=1337040307

The Hokkodain Capital is located in the Ikoyama Prefecture but when including its metropolitan area, it extends through parts of the Aikowura, Chito, and Rimioka Prefectures.

The capital moved to Ikoyama in 1988 because of its central location.

Hello!

I must let everybody know that over the last few days my computer was having some issues

and so my mom was fixing it.

I was finally able to get on today and when i did, a large majority of what i had worked on in Hokkodo was missing,

so was much of what i had downloaded

it was like an entire chunk of time and space was removed

Now with that said i must say I will not be discontinuing Hokkodo.

what is already on simtropolis will stay

but i will rebuild bigger, better, and with more realism.

I am going to share some photos of a story that was in the making that now will not be

Ironically it had to do with a young man losing his girlfriend at the most sudden and shocking time

Like me suddenly losing Hokkodo at a very shocking time

The title was...

All to Fast

because it happened so fast

​and without further ado

LegendofDako-1.jpg?t=1335474772

Dako Machi (Da-koh Ma-chee) was a twenty year old woman, who played a big roll in the Hokkodian revolution in the late 14th Century.

Many consider her to be the Joan d'Arc or Mulan of Hokkodo.

LegendofDako5-1.jpg?t=1335491870

Dako was live the typical 14th Century Hokkodian lifestyle, and, as many women her age, she was pushed to learn the ways

of beauty and how to run a good home. and all that she would have done until her country was pushed to the brink of war, with itself.

Our heroin was torn between two thing in the war. Her family or what she believed. Because her uncle Tao was a revolutionist General and her father was a Hokkodian Commander.

Tao was who she believed to be right.

tiger-dragon-screens-g.jpg

(Mite (Mee-te) and Kouga (Coo-ga) rice screens. Fun Fact: Mite was actually believed to be a young Samurai. And Kouga was not a Dragon, but a style of fighting.)

Through much pain Dako had decided to side with her uncle Tao.

Over the next seven years the war grew past what any would have believed or hoped.

Filled with lives taken by blade and arrow.

Families torn in half between ideas new and old.

Natural beauty ravaged by war.

Soon places of fun and theater, over run by war camps and outposts.

Children screaming!

Men shouting!

All was too much...

But the thing to turn all tides and causes Dako to be considered a legend!

The thing that happens in the midst of war and strife!

LegendofDako2-1.jpg?t=1335475271

(Dako's home. unfortunately not still standing today.)

Was one word.

During all panic of war!

a word.

During pain and treachery!

Just a word,

Spoken like fire

In the heat of battle after she had landed a crippling blow to Mite..

Something so persuasive, so cunning, she did not even believe....

LegendofDako6-1.jpg?t=1335560373

"No"

"What!"

"No!"

"You won't give up!"

"You can't give up!"

"You could be a hero!"

"You could save the people that love you!"

"So join me in taking back the land from those who ravage it, steal our hope, and who are oh so wrong in what they do!"

Mite, With all that was said, chose to side with Dako and the revolutionists.

Because he believed that she would be the only way to unite Hokkodo.

And these words not on any scroll, or set in any stone.

Are passed on from generation to generation by word of mouth alone.

Now with the Grand Tiger Mite and an all consuming confidence Dako and the revolutionists

were able propel them selves through to the palace and take the throne.

to once again bring peace and prosperity to Hokkodo.

(talk about speed ending)

More Facts!

After the war Dako was 27!

She was also chosen Empress and reined for 33 years!

The latter 30 were considered to be the greatest in Hokkodian history

because of the technological advances in art and agriculture that were made.

I hope you enjoyed this little lesson in history!! Fun although very abridged. and hopefully not too cheesy.

Now I have to warn you, if you're afraid of heights this my not be for you!

Today we are visiting a trail that many can't make.

A trail that some fall short.

A trail with many heights.

But also a trail with great rewards.

A trail with great views!

OnTheMountain.png?t=1334888035

​Now on to today's entry!

As the title says we are in the city of Inzomo a place of big nights and lots of trees!

The city of Inzomo is actually very close to Hakoga, the place of my first entry, just about a thirty minute ride away!

Now to the pictures!!!

Now lets pause for a moment for some info.

LTU stadium is the home of the Inzomo Flyers, a hot topic in this year's Hokkodo Athletic League (HAL)

LTU stadium was funded by Long Tung Utilities a very wealthy Chinese company who's owners son owns the team.

Also a little shoutout to WillR116 who's new city journal also includes this stadium. you should check it out... once you're done looking at mine of course.

Thanks! And welcome to Hokkodo my first, and currently my only, City Journal!

My city journal is inspired by all the great Asian journals out there, and here are my favorites.

-Saekei

-Dragon Islands

-Okinawa

So I need to say thank you to those who inspired me to do this.

A little Geography...

Hokkodo is made up of two islands each with its own prominent mountain. In Hokkodo they are known as the Twin Peaks. And as we travel around the land and waters we will learn many other intriguing facts! Are you ready? then lets get started!

Our First Stop!

HakogaPic4-3.png?t=1334096514

Welcome to Hakoga! A small place that knows how to hold BIG conventions.

*Below: The local supermarket*

HakogaPic1.png?t=1334097030

Hakoga's Misaki Supermarket houses some of the finest okonomiyaki you will find in Hokkodo!

*Below: Apartments and rice. Yum*

HakogaPic2.png?t=1334096876

*Below: Hakoga shopping*

HakogaPic3.png?t=1334096628

Hakoga's shopping district (really too small to be a district) flourishes because of the national conventions they hold all year long.

One convention held in the 90's recorded over 345,000 visitors over the four days it lasted!

Hakoga also makes plans to expand do to the revenue from the towns conventions.

Thank you very much for visiting Hakoga! And we hope you come again real soon!

Please constructive criticism!
