LEGOLAND Japan Breaks Record With Cherry Blossom Tree Made From 880,000 LEGO Bricks

Japan has one surefire sign of spring every year: the bright, gorgeous petals of the cherry blossom trees floating in the air. It may be part of their beauty that the cherry blossom blooms are short-lived, but you can’t help wishing they would stay around a little bit longer. So why not build an everlasting tree out of thousands of LEGO bricks?

The new installation at the Nagoya-based theme park was installed at the end of March and has already set a Guinness World Record as the largest Lego sculpture of its kind.

The resulting beautiful plastic sakura tree measured 4.38 meters tall, 5.42 meters long and 4.93 meters wide – over 800,000 LEGO® bricks were needed to pull this off! After more than 6,700 hours of hard work, the LEGO® tree was shipped to Japan for final assembly.
