Monde had the idea to create something to emulate the city that could fit on a shelf a couple years previous. “Two years ago, I worked on the theme of “Tokyo decorating on the shelf.” I thought that it would be interesting if I made a back side of the alley in the gap between bookshelves, ” he told Buzzfeed Japan.

I made a thing that I would like to attain in a small way , is not merely in Japan, but also for people overseas such as the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada, ” he told the outlet.
