Japan clearly has no shortage of incredibly realistic miniatures. Only recently, we’ve covered Ginji, the wise hamster behind the world’s smallest izakaya (may he rest in peace), as well as the creator of some remarkable small-scale hangars.

Which brings us to the newest development in this saga: miniature food sets. Many have taken to Twitter to express their love for the ant-sized creations of company Re-ment, a maker of toys and other miscellaneous goods. With names like “Dad, eat the bitter part for me!” and “”Grandma’s House,” these sets recreate each scene with uncanny accuracy, but at a fraction of the size.

The level of detail in many of the miniatures is truly impressive, a fact which netizens made a point of noting. Let’s take a look at some of their favorites below.

▼ “My favorite has to be the everyday dining table set.”

▼”‘I’ll lend a hand too!’ from the ‘Welcome home. Dinner’s ready!’ series.”

▼ “Good luck on your test, brother!” The thoughtful little sister cooks up a dish of tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) and cabbage (the “katsu” in tonkatsu sounds like the word for “win,” making the food a popular choice among young test takers).

▼ “LOL, I don’t even… this quality is seriously no joke.”

▼ This set from the “Our home in the ’80s” series comes complete with a miniature lighter, ashtray, and videocassette

▼ “I love the butter case from the ‘Rilakkuma Warm Meal’ series. They even added a notch for the butter knife on the lid. Nice and simple.”

▼ How many Kapibara-san can you spot here?

Japan: truly the masters of all things tiny.
