Miniature Japanese House Engawa and Nendoroid Saber

Nendoroid Saber from the Fate Stay Night show has been one of my favorite subjects ever since I met my now husband. In celebration of our ‘monthsary’, I always make a photo series with Nendoroid Saber as the main subject, dedicated to him. ❤

Since I am using Good Smile Company Nendoroid Saber Complete File Edition which was released in 2012, I decided to re-build my miniature Japanese house diorama, focusing more on its Engawa.

If you have been watching anime all your life, you may have seen a lot of this part of Japanese house in the show. It’s a place in the traditional house where in you can hang out, sit and relax. 

I haven’t really made a video of how I made this dollhouse because It was built long before I even started YouTube. But today, I filmed how I set it up.

This Japanese Dollhouse or diorama are collapsible so I can keep it in my organizer box or re-use the different parts in other dollhouses. Good thing I kept it safe in my box.

The materials I used in this diorama are mostly scrapped which I found at home. You’ll be amazed how you can recycle some old stuff that you wouldn’t believe you can build something from it.

Here’s the video, check it out!

Here are some of the photos I took!
Btw, I try to minimize the photos I share in my blog now since Flickr is not free anymore. Boo-hoo.


The miniatures I used are Re-ment. 


Since I wanted the glow of sunrise, I woke up early and set it up to catch the natural sunlight.


That’s all for today guys! 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and some of the story behind this photo set.
