Whether it’s Rome, Paris, Hong Kong or New York – we all have that one city lodged in the back of our mind that we would just love to visit or return to. Though real life often gets in the way, one Japanese company is now offering a tangible solution to get part of that city into your home. While we all have photos or souvenirs, 3D printing specialists iJet is now selling amazing 3D printed scaled dioramas of cities, enabling you to return to that one neighborhood of Tokyo or Hiroshima again and again.
And these aren’t just cheap images of what Tokyo approximately looks like, either. Instead, iJet teamed up with Japanese mapping specialists Zenrin to create a new line of cityscapes that are so detailed they could easily hang in an art gallery or museum. Most importantly, several neighborhoods can be selected, as you obviously want to look at that one defining piece of architecture. As you can see above, the Tokyo Tower is one of the landmarks selected for their examples, while the iconic Jingsu Stadium, home to baseball legends and history, is another. Their models of Hiroshima, meanwhile, show the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, known as the Atomic Bomb Dome – where you can even see models of the city before and after the drop of the bomb in 1945.
