Have you ever seen a giant cherry tree with a thousand flowers and red and white lanterns? Well, certainly not this one! Entirely made in Lego, this tree sits in the middle of the Legoland theme park in Nagoya, Japan. It entered the Guiness Book of Records in April 2018 as the largest cherry blossom tree solely made from Lego bricks.
4.38 meters high, 881,470 bricks, 6,700 hours of work, and 3,300 kilos. The whole was built in Czech Republic before being assembled on site in Japan. This sculpture celebrates the park’s first anniversary while paying tribute to Japanese culture.
Unlike its living congeners, this Japanese cherry tree also has the particularity of being eternal. Pretty practical when you know that a Sakura stays in bloom for only a little month. And in order to continue shining, even at night, the Lego lanterns light up. Yes yes yes, you read it right !
Can you already imagine your next Insta photo ? All you have to do now is book your flight to Japan !
