Japan Comes To Life In Retro-Style GIFs

Japan Comes To Life in Retro-Style GIFs

For the past few years, Tumblr user 1041uuuha has been creating terrific animated GIFs that look like the most poetic Nintendo game you've never played.

There's something bittersweet and even banal about some of these GIFs — almost Edward Hooperesque — just like there is with modern life.

    Also makes me kinda miss the place. Was a good trip.

    In the last gif, two of the plants have a pixel appear then disappear
