  1. • 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 • ############################################################################## Greetings / Saludos / Groeten # Jonathan.
  2. • 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) • ############################################################################## Greetings / Saludos / Groeten # Jonathan.
  3. • Update #6 || Hatsukaichi - Aerial View • ############################################################################## • Today we are flying around the coast of Saitama, more specifically, we are flying over the pretty village of Hatsukaichi. Its population is about 20,000 inhabitants, once again fishing is the main resource here, so most of the shoreline of this place is dedicated to fishing- The village has two ports; One is more focused in export sea products around the bay of Saitama, the other one works as local port and just small boats can be found there. Today we are just going to take a first look from the air and in the next few days we will come a little closer to know more about this wonderful place called Hatsukaichi, another port - village located in the bay of Saitama • • Here you can see a perfect aerial view of the two ports in Hatsukaichi • • The old and small port is not deep enough for the modern boats, just the locals are using that port • • It is a typical fishing port here in the Prefecture of Saitama • • To end this visit, I want to share with you this beautiful postcard from Hatsukaichi • ############################################################################## Greetings / Saludos / Groeten # Jonathan.
  4. • Update #5 || Toba - Bay of Saitama • ############################################################################## • Toba is a small town located in bay of Saitama. It has a population around 55.000 inhabitants and as most of these villages located in the bay of Saitama it produces rice and fish. It is located in the South of Handa peninsula, almost where the bay of Saitama begins. From Toba you can reach the new Saitama's airport very Quickly because is located nearby and since the last year is also possible reach Kawasaki easily due the new Tunnel that cross the bay of Saitama and connects Kawasaki with Handa Peninsula. • • Towns like Toba are very popular in the last years, why ? It's quite simple. Here you can find all you need to have a normal life...the transport is perfectly connected with all parts of Saitama and the rest of Japan but life here is much simpler and easier than a chaotic urban area...• • Yes, Toba is also connected with the rest of the Prefecture by train. Trains are really important in Japan and every single village of town must have their railway lines and stations. You can reach from Toba using the train one of the Saitama's central stations in 1 hour more or less... • • The noise from the trains is part of the city, there are trains crossing the city and reaching the train station during all day, there are some trains at night too • • There is nothing really important or special in this town, standard layouts for roads and buildings. Everything has to be efficient here. [In the center of those pictures you can see the city hall] • Toba is also connected by the Highways system of Saitama. • • Some of the streets and areas of Toba, as I said is a quiet and normal location of the metropolitan area Saitama • • This is the port of Toba. Its and old port and in the past most imporant part of this town. Today the port is used by the inhabitants of Toba and it has not an important role in trade of the prefecture, but in the past this port was important to bring fresh fish to a big number of person in this area when the transport system was not that good... anyway the Toba's port is very popular among people of this small town and they love to visit it every day to buy some fresh fish or get some of the ferries to go somewhere in the Prefecture...• • Students and workers, the trains are filled with them and they come from city center every single night... • • The natural barrier that protects the bay of Saitama from big waves makes it possible to built all those big and small ports along the shore. As you can see the protections are not really large. This also affects the number of inhabitants, making possible more urbanization areas along the bay • • Thanks for your visit and I hope you enjoy this update about TOBA • ############################################################################## ~ Greetings from TOBA, Saitama Prefecture ~ ############################################################################## Greetings / Saludos / Groeten # Jonathan.
  5. • Update #4 || East Enokido Rail Line • ############################################################################## • Enokido is a town located between the bay of Saitama and the mountains of Handa. Enokido is a town with around 120.000 inhabitants and it is part of the metropolitan area of Saitama. Today we will visit the East part of Enokido which is mostly a residential zone • • There are two rail lines going through Enokido. One goes through the center of Enokido and the other one goes through the East part of Enokido. Today we will visit the "East Enokido Rail line" which has some interesting views of this part of Enokido • • The rail lines run along the Kasumori canal. This canal is used to supply water to this part of Saitama which has a great number of rice fields. As you can see the Kasumori canal is very close to the railways • • As I said, East Enokido is mostly a residential zone and not just that, Enokido is a old town and some parts still has the old Japanese architecture style, from the train you can see a lot of these houses, they are made in wood • • The Enokido rail yard is located here. There are coming trains from the south part of Saitama, in this part of Saitama there are a lot of villages and towns and this rail yard serves to all those trains which are operating in this zone of Saitama • • At the end of the railyard there is also a freight train station. As you can imagine, this station is very important for Enokido and also for Saitama and its production • • Here in this picture you can see one of the symbols of Saitama, in most of the villages you can find one of those water towers. They were built for a company from Dresden. (BIG THANKS takemethere) • • "DIN DON" Welcome to "Jr Enokido East" station, as always the train is on time • • During the night the trains are still running through the East of this fantastic Japanese town. I hope you enjoy your trip in one of our trains • ~ Greetings from Enokido, Saitama Prefecture ~ ##################### ~ R - E - P - L - I - E - S ~ ############################################################################## tariely Thank you my friend !

  6. • Update #1 / WELCOME TO SAITAMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT • ################################################################## • After a long journey, we finally are about to land on one of the two international airports in Saitama Prefecture. We hope that your flight has been enjoyable and that everything has been to your liking. Thank you for choosing ANA Airlines and welcome to Japan • • Before disembarking, we will give you dear passengers a brief information about the new Saitama airport • • The name of the airport is "Saitama International Airport" / SIAT. It was open in september, 2015. It is located on an island in the bay of Saitama. There is a bigger airport in the prefecture, the Nagano international airport, for that reason the authorities in Saitama decided to build a medium-sized airport and not another big airport, in this case was possible to built the airport on an island in the bay of the Prefecture • • Thanks to the new airport, air transport in the prefecture is more fluid. Now international flights from Europe, Africa and America are operating in the other International airport (Nagano International airport). The new Saitama international airport operates most of the flights in Asia. The airport is a base for the japanese air company ANA Airlines. There is a dedicated terminal for Japanese flights and another dedicated to international flights • • If you are lucky you could see and enjoy the new airplane by ANA airlines, it is dedicated and decorated with the STAR WARS colours and it has a stop from its fly from Tokyo in the new airport in Saitama • • There are many ways to get to the different cities of the prefecture from the airport. You can take the special fast train connecting the airport with the city and with the other airport. You can take a bus or a taxi, but the most special, fun and definitely the most famous is to take the new Saitama's ferry. It connects all the important points in the bay of Saitama • • If you need to stay in the airport because you don't want to suffer the trafic problems and th noise of the big city, that is not a problem. There are hotels, restaurants, stores and all those things that you could need in your stay in Saitama • • During the night the airport looks amazing, it is a new and modern airport and you can see that, the blue is the color of the Prefecture and also the color of the new airport. I hope you enjoy your stay here and please be welcome to Saitama Prefecture • |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| ~ R - E - P - L - I - E - S ~ cmdp123789 Thanks for your support my friend. What are you doing now? Still working with your NYC recreation ? Saludos amigo. jmsepe Hello, Thanks for your comment ! Well after alot of time playing in this style I think I got a good result, but I have to work more on it... there are some hard points to recreate, like the urban areas, for example areas like Sumida in Tokyo with that medium density... raynev1 Thanks for your comment and your support my friend. Here you got the first update, I hope you like it and enoy it. Tonraq First of all, thanks for your comment ! I also want to say that I respect and enjoy with the work of everybody in this community. This is a game and we cannot forget that. When I said those things about the realism in others regions is not a criticism because players are free to make whatever they want, I just was talking in terms of realism. For example if you know about japan you will know about the importance of earthquakes and how much they influence in the Japanese architecture... I say this, because for example I see alot of people using buildings from Hong Kong or China (I know Some of them can perfectly fit in a Japanese environment) and is very common to see a "Japanese themed city" full of pencil towers which is... well we can say totally impossible... this is just an example, there are more things, such as a good transport system, a real map or a real location for a Japanese city which I think is really important... but as I say this is not a critic to other players, in the past I also made japanese cities with alot of tall buildings from USA or China, cities located in wrong maps, etc... and after make alot of regions and work with all kind of plugins I think I got a good result... so please don't take that message as a critic,its just my opinnion about the japanese regions in simcity4. I respect everything, every city and region created in this big simcity 4 community. Thanks again for your comment and I hope to see you again around here. I really like your CJ and I enjoy a lot with it. |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Greetings / Saludos / Groeten # Jonathan.
  7. Welcome to everyone to the first update of my new region. (In the last years I saw a lot of people trying to create a asian/japanese themed cities. I must share my opinion about this. Even if I like the pictures I don't share the ideas or the realism of their regions. I've been working with the Japanese style since the begining of my history in this game and after a lot of years, projects and a long list of regions and cities I think that finally I got a good result, it is at least realistic in terms of realism)
