Toshi is a Japanese office worker in his 20s who has a unique hobby: building miniature paper models of cities at a 1/2200 scale. He’s been posting his creations to his twitter account, but he just recently completed his most ambitious project to date: a miniature model of Shinjuku that was 4 years in the making.
The artist ironically is based in Nagoya, but his love for tall skyscrapers drove him to recreate Shinjuku, one of Tokyo’s busiest districts. And despite the area’s rapidly changing skyline, Toshi has captured, in precise detail, everything from major developments to small streets, parks and billboards.
If you love cities and miniature models, you can keep up with Toshi on Twitter.
