A Full Blown Sakura Tree Made from 880,000 Lego Bricks Marks The One-Year Anniversary of LEGOLAND Ja
Popsugar - The structure is built just in time for the upcoming Sakura season in the country, while also marking the one-year anniversary of LEGOLAND Japan. The awe-inspiring structure is built by a team of experts at the LEGO factory in the Czech Republic who spent nearly 6700 hours to put in place 881,470 plastic blocks around metal support pipes. The final parts were then shipped to Nagoya, Japan, where they were assembled for the final display. Apart from the branches, flowers and the bark, the lanterns (which are beautifully lit up at night) around the tree are also made purely out of LEGO bricks.
