Do you love Animal Crossing? Do you dream of visiting Japan? Is your current life and/or financial situation too mundane to actually do so? Well, thanks to Animal Crossing: New Horizons Guide, now you can enjoy the Japanese scenery without traveling abroad!

The 5-star island is an art installation in Melbourne, Australia. It’s known as a haven for lovers of Japanese culture and an oasis for puppies, and is built entirely out of soft materials.

A perfect symmetric hexagon Maze island will steal your heart and take your breath away. And you thought original mazes could not be exciting! This elaborate and expansive maze takes inspiration from the cherry blossom season, with a beautiful flower field at its centre. It is not only an exciting place to explore, but it will also feed your creative mind — and while you’re there, why not solve one of its puzzles?
No matter how many times I walk past this island, it never fails to take my breath away. The waterfall is the focal point, but the cherry blossoms present in both the tree and the bridge in front of it just seem to add that extra something that makes this island so much more than the sum of its parts. Each time I see it, I am reminded to pause for a moment and consider the beauty around me.
Take a look at this bamboo meditation room — it is the perfect addition to any Japanese-style island. All you need to do is design an awesome custom flooring for those wooden tiles. You can even customize the color of your sand, and add some different types of rocks around the room.
Japan has a rich history of architecture that the rest of the world can still learn from, so build a Japanese-inspired monument in your town to delight everyone who sees it!

To create an artificial market that accurately represents the chaos of developing your island, you’ll need to start by paving a main thoroughfare with stone. This road will be the backbone of your bustling commercial district; creating it should be at the top of your to-do list. You can use this open space to build up or add platforms, depending on how you want to navigate your district.
Create a ‘Super Cute Selfie Spot’ by throwing on your fave kimono and heading out to a Japanese inspired bridge. Set up a waterfall surrounded by bamboo trees to capture your favorite photos (to later use for Instagram). Create a lake, but remember to keep an island in the middle of the lake, so you can connect the bridges.
