Tower of Aluminium Cans Set Guinness World Record

It took 104, 840 aluminium cans to recreate Japan’s Yoshida Castle’s corner tower and is now the world record holder for ‘an object fashioned with the largest number of aluminium cans'.

The Toyohashi Junior Chamber’s project of recreating the tower started in June and highlights the importance of re-using recyclable materials.

Shinsuke Nakazawa, Director of the Junior Chamber expressed his gratitude towards the local citizens for their support. "If they did not cooperate with us in the collection and piling up of the aluminium cans, we would not be able to complete this project".

The aluminium can castle will be on display until 20 October 2013.
