There's plenty of ways to relive the magic of the Aburaya bath house from Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away, whether it be heading to Japan to pass through Nagasaki's eerily nostalgic lantern festival, or to explore awesome hot spring towns that seem frozen in the classic film's world. But while many of us are content to re-watch the film, hording merchandise like vintage Japanese jackets and No-Face piggy banks, Japanese Twitter user and model-artist Sorakio is showing us the creative side of appreciating the animation studio's worlds with these amazingly detailed models of the bath house from Spirited Away and other Studio Ghibli creations.

Sorakio made the Aburaya bath house model, and others, completely by hand using commercially available plastic and some spare warship model parts. The bath house, along with a palm-sized Howl's Moving Castle, are incredibly crafted in detail and brought to life with a wonderful paint job. Check out the impressive attention to detail and hard work Sorakio put into bringing the movies to life. Be sure to follow Sorakio on Twitter for more. Sorakio also has two blogs that list previous creations.
