Japanese Grocery Store

From a kit sold by Cuteroom, no idea who the actual manufacturer is but I have a feeling it's produced as a knockoff of the more expensive Japanese-made Billy Showa series kits, the dagashiya and tobacco shop in particular. 

Built mostly as prescribed, with a few alterations: I added wood plank pattern scrapbook paper to the exterior and custom wallpaper to the interior, laser-cut the counters from real wood, added a wood skirt to the counter, repainted the dango in more appropriate colors and made them their own display tray, made some Pocky and Botan rice candy boxes to fill up the rest of the space in the lollipop tray, and did fancy bricks on the base with Crayola Air-Dry Clay, paint, sand, turf powder, and some greenery left over from another kit. Also some of the posters supplied by the kit are kind of, uh... period inappropriate (exhibit A: an actual Pokemon X/Y poster the manufacturer didn't even try to file the serial numbers off of, somehow I get the feeling that this was not cleared by the Pokemon Company) so I went Googling for actual Showa-era beer ads and stuff to replace them.
