Building pretty much anything with massive amounts of LEGO building blocks will generally be worthy of media headlines, especially when you have used a staggering 1.8 million LEGO building blocks to recreate an entire country.
That’s exactly what we have here, a map of Japan created with 1.8 million LEGO building blocks. To help celebrate the iconic brand’s 50 year anniversary in Japan, LEGO’s Japanese subsidiary sponsored this cross country workshop in which 5,000 plus people from 6 different regions teamed up to build this impressive map of Japan. The attention detail on this particular LEGO project is among the best we have ever witnessed. [Via]
