Second Life has a new addition its beautiful collection of Japanese-themed sims. Soyokaze is a medieval Japanese roleplay island for the Bushido clan. It also has a wonderful Japanese art gallery with exterior gardens located in a valley behind the rugged mountains which populate the landscape.
The rendition of a rugged mountain landscape, and the natural positioning of a Japanese village to take full advantage of limited flat land space, are what makes this destination a stand-out, and particularly beautiful. The textures, colors, and landscaping of this destination are very attractive and make this a must-see destination to visit.
All Photography was taken with Windlight Sky Setting (SS) Atmospheric 15:00 Cloudy 2 which is included in the Firestorm viewer as an option.
