A 69-year-old former insurance examiner spent 19 years building a miniature replica of the Himeji Castle in Japan. What is he going to do now when it’s finished? Personally I’d never want to finish something like that and fulfill my dream.

The 69-year-old former insurance examiner completed his model of Himeji Castle at a scale of 1:23 in the garden of his home in Ise, Mie Prefecture, in April.
