Here is a description of the video:

We made a replica of Himeji Castle (which is a designated world heritage site) in Lego. It pops out like a pop-out picture book and the production period was around 15 months. The number of used Lego pieces is unknown but it weighs about 12.5kg and does not use any adhesives or glue. The walls, moats and wells is accurately positioned to recreate the castle. Other underground aspects such as the crypt and other rooms are not included in this model.

It is hard to believe that no glue was used to create this detailed replica of a pop-out Himeji Castle since so many Lego pieces were used in the construction of this designated heritage site! It is a remarkable creation!
