There's something distinctive about Japanese towers that even the uninitiated can identify them straight away. However, this characteristic look can be quite elusive, as many of the model Japanese castles I've seen for sale to wargamers just don't capture that distinctive shape properly.

However, that is certainly not an issue with the latest model building I've bought to go with my 28mm samurai figures. This wooden yagura ichi tower kit from Tre Games Inc definitely looks Japanese!

Yes, that is indeed the best one I've seen in a gaming kit!

I've already commented to Tre Games that his stuff looks really accurate and I lived in Japan for a decade and a half. Others… there just was something missing or it was way off. But his stuff is legit. And his response made it seem like he'd never been to Japan either. So his artistic eye and skill must be very good.

Building alone looks good, and the model sakura trees make it even better. I swear that all miniature battles in Japan must happen during April or early May!
