A Walk in the Garden

We are so very excited to be able to welcome you to the new Hosoi Ichiba. For those not as fluent in Japanese (like me), the word "Ichiba" means "market". Amiryu wanted to design something that captures the spirit of a traditional east-asian market, a place you could walk and enjoy the sights, sounds and wonderful merchandise on display.

My name is Kalderi Tomsen - I am the Sales Manager for the company, and I wanted to post to introduce myself and the new space that has come into being in Second Life on Virgin Island.

Centre-stage in the Ichiba is the garden. This is designed to be a place to come, sit, relax and meditate. We have various areas for quiet contemplation, including Tai Chi. Around the garden are the various pavilions, featuring high-quality antiques, furniture and accessories that would complement any asian-styled home. The picture shows one of these pavilions - click on the image to see a full-resolution image showing the incredible detail that is the hallmark of Amiryu's creations.

For the trivia buffs out there, each pavilion has a name - here are the meanings of those names:
  • Omoishiru - "think and know"
  • Motomeru - "to seek, to want, to desire"
  • Omodaka - "Ginkgo Flower"
  • Kashiwa - "Oak Leaf"
  • Tachibana - "orange flower"
  • Miyoga - a wild ginger-like plant
The members of the sales staff look forward to welcoming you to the Ichiba, and hope that you feel a spirit of peace and tranquility when you are with us.
