That’s right, you read that title correctly. While some people enjoy constructing ships inside bottles, it seems that popular beverage company Kirin has taken up a new hobby- building unbelievably tiny kitchens inside of plastic bottles! In a new advertisement for a line of soft drinks, Kirin showcases some incredible craftsmanship at a minuscule level. You’ll be blown away by the minute details of these models!

Kirin Beverage Company uploaded the following amazing video clips and photos of their hand-crafted miniature scenes-in-a-bottle last week. All of the scenes were constructed inside of plastic bottles from their Sekai no Kichin (“kitchens of the world”) “Salt and Litchi [Lychee]” line.

The amount of work and finesse it must have taken to construct the models is immediately apparent. Their attention to detail is also astounding, such as the movable fridge door, multiple kitchen utensils, spice containers on the counter, and the minuscule cracks and stains on the walls.

By the way, the scale to real life is 1/48. Regular miniature models are usually scaled to 1/12, so these scenes are four times as small as usual miniature sets!!
