Taiko Drum Set

Taiko (太鼓?) means "drum" in Japanese (etymologically "great" or "wide drum"). Outside Japan, the word is often used to refer to any of the various Japanese drums (和太鼓, 'wa-daiko', "Japanese drum", in Japanese) and to the relatively recent art-form of ensemble taiko drumming (sometimes called more specifically, "kumi-daiko" (組太鼓)).

Tsugaru Shin Jonkara Bushi by Kyle Abbott (

Kyle Abbott was kindly enough to borrow one of the songs for this shamisen, I've been following his youtube channel for a while so I thought it was a  good idea to do it. He built his own Tsugaru Shamisen and wrote a book about it! : The Shamisen of Japan:
Youtube Channel:

The rest of the song were taken from Tsugaru Shamisen by Takahashi Chikuzan a traditional shamisen player.

Zen Series (by Kunst Himmel)

In this post you will see a few works by Kunst Himmel. I only made the scripts on these products, while Kunst Himmel made an amazing work in sculpting and baking:


Zen Vase 1:
You can select different types of bamboo and one palm plus you can choose between different colors for the vase

Zen Vase 2:

It comes with a candle. You can choose different colors.

Sake Set:

Zen Sake Set:

A very detailed and low prim sake set with many functionalities like automatic serving and access levels

Japanese Lamps

Japanese paper lamps are a very important symbol in asian culture, they are not only used for lighting, but also for festivals like Obon where floating lanterns are placed on a river stream to represent our friends that are not longer with us.

I was very inspired when I made these ones, I wanted it to be very functional and customizable.
The light script changes luminosity and glow randomly like if there were a real candle inside. Also you can change wood color and paper motif, giving you a lot of combinations.

Finally, in the ceiling version you can adjust cable's size automatically with menu buttons.

You can buy or test these lamps at my mainstore: Click to teleport
