A Tea House on Stilts

stilt tea house

The Japanese tea house on stilts is reminiscent of the type of tree house Dr. Seuss might design.  It’s whimsical and charming – but not for the faint of heart!

The tea house is named Takasugi-an, which (appropriately) means, “a tea house too high.”

It’s built at the summit of two chestnut trees that overlook the town and valley where its architect, Terunobu Fujimori, grew up.
