Great Second Life Destinations: Springtime at Tatakai Tochi in the Mountains of Japan

Tatakai Tochi, which means Flight Land in Japanese, is a lush and atmospheric sim by designer Shen Molinaro, is evocative of the forests and lakes of the mountain regions of Japan. Mountains. Shen has also designed Suomi, one of the most admired and heralded sims in 2016. Suomi, which means Finland in the Finnish language, is an evocative landscape of tall pines, clear lakes, and Northern Lights contrasts well with Tatakai Tochi.   Instead of cold mountain streams and winter atmospherics, Tatakia Tochi celebrates Spring with forests of flowering Sakura trees, bamboo groves,  and clear running waterfalls. The landscape here is unexpected and a pleasure to walk and discover. I highly recommend a visit here, and to Suomi if you have not yet visited.

Photography Information:

I used Windlight Sky Setting -- Annan Adored's Morning Dream in these images.  My version of the Firestorm viewer did not carry this Windlight Setting as an option in Advanced Environmental Editor.

I added Morning Dream and other current settings by Annan Adored by the downloading a Zip File from this location and adding the settings to my Windlight folder. Instructions are carried on the home page of the link.  I like all of the different settings and recommend that you download all as photographic options:
