    Cool, there's a real Japanese styling to his other stuff. Always interesting to see different cultures influences on their MOCs. Fun stuff, so I'll forgive him refering to 'legos'... :p

    I wonder how many bricks he used.
    I like the little tai-chi class down in the park. :-)

    FYI, the builder -- Sachiko Akinaga -- is female.

    Here is her website:

    On it, is a chronicle of her participation (and victory) in a Japanese game show called "2011 Championship for The King of LEGO". I love that the Japanese turn everything into a TV gameshow:

    Really like this stuff!

    My wife is from Japan, and so we get TV Japan at home on our cable box. A few months ago she recorded a program that was similar - a LEGO building contest. 4 or 5 contestants and several builds - I recall a trip to the zoo with animal builds, and another with masks that the builders could wear.... I've deleted it since then, but I'll see if we can find it on You Tube. Like @rocao mentioned, it's neat how everything turns into a TV gameshow in Japan.... and neat to see what another culture does with LEGO. :o)
