Miniature Meals Taking Over YouTube in Japan http://www.weirdasianews.com/2015/12/08/miniature-meals-takin...
"For the last twelve months, a growing trend has caught the attention of YouTube viewers worldwide. These miniature meals, also known as pocket cooking, are most popular in Japan. No one is quite sure how this phenomenon started, but many people look toward the YouTube channel Miniature Space, which is the perfect embodiment of Kawaii cooking (Kawaii means ‘cute’ in Japanese). It doesn’t hurt that there are over 460,000 subscribers to the channel, with some videos having been viewed nearly 4 million times." ‎- ronin
