Haiku, a complete poem in just 17 syllables. Bonsai, a tree grown in a tiny pot. Or just a pocket-size transistor radio. Even without these well-known examples, it is clear that Japanese culture has a long history of miniaturism—the aesthetic of reducing things to a size just right for their own tiny, perfect world. An appreciation of the beauty of the minuscule and the ability to achieve it have resulted in traditional crafts, industrial products, toys and a lot of other things that are tiny, awesome and cute.
