You need to see this 3D art exhibition in Japan

This is definitely a fun way to entertain the kids.

An art exhibition showing hyper-realistic 3D drawings is pulling in the crowds in Japan and these incredible photos show why.

The exhibition, showcasing work by Japanese artist Masashi Hattori, is at the Kawasaki City Museum.

Visitors are encouraged to take pictures with the artwork, inserting themselves into the scenarios Hattori has created.

While some of the pictures are amusing, others feel slightly disturbing, including a skeletal man gripping the ankles of unsuspecting visitors and a baby being fed.
