Twitter user Tachibana 11111 created this "fantasy Japanese style" village. The design is modeled after a Japanese village filled with traditional inns.
Tachibana 11111 spent one year and eight months to complete this work, using a self-made custom texture pack to capture that Japanese feel. The result is truly spectacular.
