Hirata Honjin Memorial Museum Paper Model - by Izumo Zaidan



In Japan, Honjin were originally Edo Period travel accommodations for upper level government officials and daimyo (feudal lords). Often, they were the homes of well-to-do village headmen or rich merchants, and in return for being designated as a honjin they were allowed to build walls, gates, and other markers of a status above their rank. This was the honjin for the Matsue Domain and originally belonged to the family of Motoki Sasaki, who made his fortune in trading cotton and brewing sake. It was constructed in 1735. Today it is a museum open to the public that is famous for its beautiful gardens. - I want to say thanks to John Wagenseil, from Paper Modelers forum, for this nice find!


No Japão, um Honjin era originalmente uma grande casa que servia como acomodação para oficiais de alta patente e daimyos (lordes feudais). Muitas vezes, eram casas de chefes de aldeia ou comerciantes ricos, que em troca de poderem ostentar o nome Honjin, eram autorizados a construir paredes, portas e outros marcadores de um status acima de sua classificação. Este era originalmente o Honjin dos domínios Matsue e pertencia à família de Motoki Sasaki, que fez fortuna negociando algodão, saquê de cerveja. Ele foi construído em 1735. Atualmente é um museu aberto ao público que é famoso por seus belos jardins. - Quero agradecer a John Wagenseil, do forum Paper Modelers, por este belo achado!
