A family home and business that's located in Mirasaka, Hiroshima, is modeled after an iconic Japanese milk carton design.

The unique home is structured and painted just like the cardboard milk carton design from the popular brand 'Mainichi Gyunyu.' Wood paneling that covers the exterior is coated in red, white and blue and it is accented by Japanese lettering and the word "MILK" written in English. The rural home is well-known amongst Mirasaka locals.

The milk carton design reflects the family's business, which consists of a milk store that's located inside and a delivery service that drops off the product to people in the neighborhood. Standing out amongst its surroundings, the home has become a tourist attraction for those passing by -- likely resulting in more sales for the family company as well.
