Small Worlds Tokyo to open in 2020

The world’s largest indoor diorama theme park is slated to open next year in Tokyo, Japan. This massive display will include a combination of real and fictional dioramas. Real world locations will include Towns of the World, Kansai International Airport, a Space Centre, and Tokyo. Fictional locations will be based on popular manga and anime series such as Sailor Moon and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The dioramas are reported to be in 1:80 scale and the facility is to cover a total of 8,000 square meters. Some of the miniatures will be operational, including aircraft that fly and spacecraft that lift off. 

The facility will be located in the Ariake District on Tokyo Bay and is scheduled to open in Spring 2020.  

If you like to build dioramas and want to learn more about how to optimize the visual impact of your work, you might like my book, Diorama Design. It’s available in both ebook and print formats at Amazon.

Second Anniversary

The release of my new book, Diorama Design, marks the second anniversary of Creative Dioramas. It’s now available on Amazon in both ebook and print formats.

Diorama Design is a practical guide to design theory for modellers who like to build dioramas. I explain key design concepts and show you how to apply them, using actual dioramas as case studies. Diorama Design will teach you how to think like an artist and increase the visual impact of your dioramas.
