Featured on the official Minecraft website here: https://www.minecraft.net/sv-se/article/land-soroku


The land of Soroku (city of the sky) is a feudal Japanese city of towers, bridges, walkways and labyrinth-like structures intertwined with the mountains. Explore the richly detailed Kabuki theater, restaurants, markets, onsen, homes, apartments and much more. Now with a sprawling metropolitan railway network under construction. An ongoing project for the last 6 years that will continue to grow! I hope you enjoy the map, all feedback is appreciated :)


(custom made resource pack included in the download folder) Resource pack pieced together with assets taken from the custom textures in the adventure map: the mysterious east, from the Nagareru pack originally made by Mangesmith, and from Alan Becker's Japanese Ghiblicraft pack

PS: screenshots and renders are now outdated! new images may be coming soon, including all the new and improved map elements.

This has most likely been said more times than one can count, but will the links to windows 10 and xbox 360/one be fixed? Most would probably enjoy even a very minimal version or just the seed.

One thing that would make this map batter however, is the ground-level and expanding it by adding some under-ground systems, or having a small oriental-style garden with traditional bath houses built-in to the walls. Since the map is so detailed, it's hard to find things immediately, so correct me if there's already one in the map.

If this ever becomes a server map, or you decide to make it a city with an entrance, a cool mini-project (Depending on how you look at it), would be to add a Torri gate where the entrance would be, which with your style of detailed building, would look gorgeous.

All the buildings are cam-packed with detail and everything looks gorgeous even without the texture packs. The terrain is also very simple, yet allows expansion without a limit. It's a shame I can't show this off to Xbox players as examples of what can be done on a PC (Trying to convince people PC is easier and better for building).

Keep up the good work!

The resource pack should come in the download folder with the map file. You can then place it in the appropriate resource pack folder in the Minecraft directory. Hope that makes sense, if it doesnt work its possible ive messed up the file somehow, sorry :/ If so I'll update the download link. Hope this helps!

~3 years, roughly 8 months since last time a look on this project.
And darn, I can't remember that 8 months ago were those shulker boxs or colored beds. Still impressive to come back & take a look at this project.

Probs for keeping up!

a shop that people seem to always leave out is a chemists. I think every steampunk city of all origins should have a chemist.
my username is albinoEX
I would be greatful if you made a chemist

That's another thing I have no clue on, how you keep up the motivation on it. I would have restarted the project several times because I got new ideas & I need to realign everything for it.

I enjoy being able to constantly build upon it to make something bigger. Its satisfying seeing the progression in the project from earlier areas to more recent ones, and if i have a new idea, i will just expand and include it :). for me the disorganised nature adds character and realism. I only tend to work on this when i feel like it too, so its not a chore, just an enjoyable thing to return to now and then.

Seems you have figured things properly out to make it work.

By the way, I have been flying throughout the map & destroying things here and there because of the interior maze.
So some feedback here if you don't mind. Well done on making basic interior structures/walls/floors and such. Even more impressive to see here and there in each districts some interior working fully done. For interior detailing tips/suggestions from my side, take a look at this old project of mine.

As for the resource pack, nice minimalistic changes to let things look good. Maybe try to add a similar block type for the nether stairs and such. It gets rather boring to see only nether roofs or full single wooden roofs. Try to combine some to do some accentuating.

I like it! Looks like straight out of a studio ghibli movie :P
I'm just a bit confused with the name. How is 空く read as soroku?
空く means to become empty and is read as suku.
Anyways keep it up :D

Thanks! I've always been inspired by those sort of fantasy worlds! The name has always been something that annoys me too honestly, i initially thought of it long before i started actually learning the language. "soroku" was i think a product of several flaky google translate attempts and my wish to use the character for "sky" or "emptiness" as well as for it to sound "cool". in retrospect i think the crude transliteration is funny, and ill probably leave it that way :P

thank you very much! loved your video, made me so happy XD. i made this build on my own over about a year, the terrain was created randomly with amplified, i don't use world edit (doesent work for this version of minecraft). and a reccomended texture pack is in the description (thats why the redstone torches look weird).
thank you again!
