This magnificent white castle is entirely made of paper. The awesomely intricate work of papercraft was created by Japanese artist Wataru Itou, who spent four years on the project. Entitled Umi no Ue no Oshiro, which translates to mean ’A Castle on the Ocean,’ the 2009 installation featured a moving train and enchanting internal lighting structure.

I forgot to mention this blog I found last week called Tokyobling.

I don’t know anything about it, or who runs it, or even what it’s really about.  I do know that whoever runs it is a very excellent photographer, and the posts are really interesting.  A lot of them are about Japanese festivals, wandering around different Tokyo neighborhoods, or going out into the countryside.  All in all, a very beautiful blog, and if you have any interest in Japan I really recommend it.
