Cherry Blossom Tea House Treehouse
I love cherry blossoms. Their soft pastel colors gently floating about the contrasting pitch branches.
They’re beautiful. They’re calming.
And they’re the perfect accompaniment to a tea house garden.
These particular cherry blossom trees, however, surround a particularly curious tea house. The Teahouse Tetsu in Hokuto, Japan doesn’t simply rest amongst the trees.
It rises above them.
Set atop a thick cypress trunk, this tea house is capable of swaying during high winds, due to the trunk’s support as it stretches up within the interior of the house.
This tea-in-the-sky spectacular was designed by Terunobu Fujimori for the Kiyharu Shirakaba Museum.
