Japan’s extraordinary flair for creating works of awesome cuteness has knocked our socks off once again. We love capybaras here at the Geyser of Awesome, so we could barely believe our eyes when we saw these impossibly adorable dumpling-like capybaras basking in steaming bowls of soup. They’re modeled after the real live capybaras who love nothing more than basking in the hot springs of Izu Shaboten Park in Shizuoka, Japan.
These savoury cavies were made by Yuko Ishihara using daikon oroshi (grated daikon radish). Their serene little heads were coloured with dashes of soy sauce and their eyes are tiny pieces of seaweed.
If you’ve never been soothed by the sight of Capybaras luxuriating in the hot springs of Ize Shaboten, click here for a couple delightful videos.
