In Japan I believe, these are houses made by Japanese architect Terunobi Fujimori

the Too-high tea house
I picture many a good sessions in there, some tea friends too tea drunk to manage their way back down :lol: I like his idea behind the trees “One leg is dangerous and three legs are too stable and boring.”

Yes! Great pictures Teaisme, thanks for posting!

I wonder how he manages to build something that looks straight out of a studio gibli movie, here in Sweden the draconic buildning safety regulations would never let something crazy like that pass. Too bad, we could really need more inspirational works like the houses of mr. Fujimori.

I wish this one was for real, like in the movie (LOTR):

All those houses are really inspiring to drink...any tea, really! :P

Love the top pic, the words 'himitsu kishi' came to mind.

A tea hut of my own would ofc be the ultimate project. First a house and then build a tea "stuga" in the yard. Not that I'm likely to ever own a house but you know...

Fujimori-sama (I use the polite address here to be humble) had an exhibition and a talk called 'Shelter: of Kindness', and one of his teahouses that was installed at the RMIT University Gallery here in Melbourne a couple of years back, and I was lucky enough to see one of his extraordinary structures in the flesh! And studying sado made it even more meaningful to me. Google it, it's quite fascinating....! 8-)
