Miniature Day(3/2) ミニの日 and Japanese miniature art


Miniature Day (3/2) “ミニの日”

I have never heard of “miniature day” begore. Apparently, today is the day.
In Japanese, 32 can be read as “mi ni” (miniature). This day is not a national holiday, but BMV enacts this day as “Mini day” by playing upon the words of 3/2 for their product “MINI”.

This day is enacted to love miniatures and small things.
I need to celebrate this day.

What else? When I was a kid, I was enthusiastic about “Mini 4WD” (ミニ四駆 /mini yonku/).

These were very popular in Japan in 1990th.

Yes, I love “mini” stuffs. I am not sure that Japanese people like “mini” stuff in general, but I believe that Japanese people are good at minimizing things that are out there such as music players.

There are amazing Japanese miniature art.
