These karakuri paper puppets by Haruki Nakamura are incredible.
Every year around Christmas time, cities across Japan feature beautiful light displays. Although it’s debatable whether or not Japan actually “gets” Christmas, it’s undeniable that they know how to put on a good light show. One of the most stunning shows features images projected onto famous buildings.
It used to be that you had to travel and see these displays first hand, but that isn’t the case anymore. Thanks to Bandai, creators of an entire armada of wacky Japanese toys, you’re just a miniature purchase and smartphone app away from a 3-D lightshow at home.
