Combine the Japanese love for paper, appreciation for craftsmanship and admiration for their country's culture, and what do you get? Small masterpieces like the Nano Premium Itsukushima Miyajima Shrine Deluxe Model, a papercraft kit of one of Japan's most famous landmarks, the Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (also known as Miyajima) near Hiroshima.
