Audacious Japanese Treehouse Café

 Japan is famous for its unusual and extremely beautiful architecture. If you are in this country I advise you to visit Naha Harbor Diner restaurant. This cafe located in Okinawa, Japan lies at the very top of a huge Gajumaru tree (also known as Banyan tree) about 20 feet above the ground. This crazy pan-Asian is nestled amid the branches of the tree. It may be interesting for you how the architects managed to build that on a tree without the tree falling apart or worries of a rotting tree.

 After looking further into this amazing structure one realizes that the tree isn’t a real tree at all, it’s a life size recreation of a Banya Tree made out of concrete. You can get inside by a spiral staircasearound back and an in-trunk elevator. The restaurant menu offers delicious sounding meals such as: Swimming Crab Tomato Pasta, Carpacio of beef with salad of green papaya, and Smoked Duck Breast with fruit. But you can enjoy not only the food by also the breathtaking ocean views opening from the café. Naha Harbor Diner is known for being a romantic and quiet setting.
