Karuizawa's Forest Holiday

Brand: Hongda
SKU: M034Z

For lovers of minimalism and mountains

Japan’s Karuizawa mountain resort is a nature lover’s dream. The Karuizawa Forest Holiday loft’s décor complements the forest’s quiet beauty - with a minimalist approach to design. The décor exudes a Zen-like serenity throughout, beautifully accessorised with touches of greenery, candles, Japanese lanterns, and framed artwork.

At night, when it is illuminated by its LED lights, it is warmly inviting. A set of wooden slipper sandals placed neatly at the loft’s front entrance attests to the return of its residents - happily seeking refuge within the loft's elegant interior after a day spent hiking throughout the surrounding woodland.

    What could possibly go wrong?
    These miniature rooms take many hours to build and require patience and care. As with all DIY Kits, the more skill and experience you have, the better the result. If you're not careful, you could damage parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. Take your time and enjoy the experience.

    What is the recommended minimum age to build Karuizawa's Forest Holiday?
    12 - however at this age an adult will need to help. All kids are different of course, but we're going to say that an average 15 year old could most likely build it independently. 

    What is the recommended maximum age to build Karuizawa's Forest Holiday?
    If you have steady hands and patience then the only thing that can stop you is your eyesight.

    How long will the battery last?
    The light is an LED, so expect to get many hours of use.

    Are the batteries hard to find?
    No - the lighting is powered by common button batteries available from hardware stores and supermarkets.

    Is the model fragile?
    Fragile like glass? No, but many parts are delicate and could damage easily from pets, children or a fall. The supplied acrylic box helps keep it intact and dust-free.

    I love these miniature rooms! Do you have any more?
    Sure do - check out the full range of Miniature Room Kits.
