About this City Journal

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE! OKAIKEN HAS CONCLUDED AFTER 5 YEARS OF SERVICE.


すゝしさや
かみとほとけの
となりどし。

IN THE COOLNESS
GODS AND BUDDHAS
DWELL AS NEIGHBOURS

Okaiken is the test bed for understanding the strata of living within a set parameters of Japanese living but with concepts that are not unique to Japanese culture itself. A close look to the urban/rural, social classes, transportation, recreation and family dynamics will be strictly observed. Through SimCity 4, urban planning strategies will be discussed, with flow, growth and development being the focus.

Thanks guys for your input on the Third Special. The theme for 2015 is Blue and because the Earth is Blue, the motto and theme song is "Around the World" by GOT7.

It's almost Christmas and to celebrate it, we'll turn to the Japanese company notorious for using the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky, SoftBank, and with it comes the Shirato Family.
