At first sight, I thought Godzilla was a realistic paper model.

How to construct and view a tatebanko

A web page showing the proper construction and viewing (by candle light) of a tatebanko -
立版古で遊ぶ②「大しん板切組とうろう 里見八犬伝 悪猫たいじの段」|気球企画 / 試作部|note

The tatebanko -

or bigger and better
https://www.arc.ritsumei.ac.jp/archi...urou/ho746.jpg

I have posted this tatebanko before but without the instructions for the proper assembly by a Japanese person.


I should mention that this tatebanko is very terrifying with a hidden evil devil cat monster, so be careful if you show it to people with cat phobia.

ペーパークラフトを作ろう 紙で作れる文化財
There is a new to me paper model on the Suita City Museum web site of a kyuunkanishike.
https://www.suita.ed.jp/hak/suita_pa...nkanishike.pdf
I have no idea of what this is, as it does not google, and the translate pages do not work with images and PDF.
Perhaps it is an inn or a house of a wealthy merchant or a highly placed samurai.

When kyuunkanishike is transcribed from romaji to kanna
and translated
the result is "moisture in a hurry",
which seems to be an odd name for a building,
but perhaps it is a facility
where travelers can get wet refreshments quickly?


There is also a new, second tea house available for download on the Suita city museum paper model page:
https://www.suita.ed.jp/hak/suita_pa...sekisuian2.pdf



If you want more teahouses from Japan, they are available here:
Builders Plans for Teahouse/folding paper model


Two more tea houses have been uploaded to Papermodelers.com but I cannot find them using the search function.

A treasure trove of almost forgotten paper models from Japan.
みなとツール ||| みなと立版古
These are stylized or impressionistic views of Japanese cities.
I have not explored other dates to see if more models were added.

Your translation is almost certainly more accurate than mine, but is more prosaic and less thought provoking than mine.
The house seems to have once belonged to the main branch of a wealthy merchant family or the head of a prominent samurai family. (I wonder if they were moist?)

A thread with a Japanese site with pokemons, that was posted previously.
Imaginary Creatures from Popular Game
Reposted for completeness.

A belated proper thank you for the correct translation.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the head of a well off family will be in possession of a good fortune, and will not be in want of a nice house.
